Divorce is one of the most challenging events in a person's life and, if and when it occurs, it can bring to light some of the most difficult decisions in a person's life. When children are involved, divorcing parents in Louisiana and elsewhere need to determine what is best for their child or children, and what kind of custody arrangement could best serve the needs of everyone involved.
Depending on the situation and the ability of the parents to reach a compromise, forming a child custody agreement can be a straightforward process. This means avoiding the need to go to court to litigate the matter. Unfortunately, this isn't always the case. Parents sometimes cannot see eye-to-eye, making it necessary for them to go to court to sort through the matter.
