Child Custody

Children come first in most families. Unfortunately, issues arise when a couple’s relationship fails, oftentimes creating a hostile environment for the children that can lead to serious consequences. At the Law Offices of Rachel C. Schmidt, child custody comes to the forefront of any case to ensure that your children’s best interests are represented.

In Louisiana, there are several forms of child custody, and you should know the differences between them to make an informed decision. The process begins when the couple attempts to work out the differences in what is known as a Consent Judgment. A Consent Judgment is an agreement between the father and the mother where a plan is setup to decide several major decisions that need to be made in the children’s lives. Who gets physical custody of the child at particular times and specific holidays, where the child will go to school, and who provides for the Child Support are all issues that can be determined in a Consent Judgment.  However, some parties may not be able to agree on these major decisions. At the Law Offices of Rachel C. Schmidt your attorney will be willing to fight for what is right for your child.
