New Orleans Child Custody Attorney

Perhaps the most difficult aspect to address in a divorce is the issue of child custody. Most parents want to ensure that they remain actively involved in their children's lives whether their kids live with them or not. However, coming to a mutual agreement on parenting time is not always an easy task. And due to the difficulty in modifying child custody orders after they have been set, it is essential to consult with a qualified attorney before making any decisions.

At Phillips Law, LLC, we place a special emphasis on family law matters involving children. We understand the importance of child custody both for you and your children, and provide supportive advocacy to help you achieve your legal goals.

Our firm routinely addresses issues in:

  • Physical custody (joint/shared or sole)
  • Legal custody (joint/shared or sole)
  • Parenting time
  • Child move-away and relocation
  • Domestic violence and child custody
  • Child custody modifications

Did You Know?

In Louisiana, our courts presume equal rights to both mothers and fathers during child custody disputes. In fact, joint physical and legal custody is typically the preferred solution when circumstances are appropriate.

Protecting Your Parental Rights And The Best Interests Of Your Children

When a mutual custody agreement cannot be reached by divorcing parties, the matter will need to be litigated in court. It is important to understand that a judge will always maintain the best interests of the children as the priority when ruling upon child custody and parenting time. However, this does not mean you cannot assert your parental rights and present a solid claim as to what constitutes the best interests of your own children.

As attorneys, we understand that legal issues involving children tend to be very emotional matters for our clients. To address this, we work hard to provide supportive service. We are readily available throughout your case to answer new questions, address your child custody concerns or simply listen to when you need to vent.
