However, sometimes getting both sides to agree to a viable child custody arrangement takes a lot of time and effort. When the agreement is not upheld, tempers can flare quickly.

Support, Visitation & Custody
When you are not the custodial parent of your child and have been denied your right to visitation by your ex-spouse, you can often feel helpless and though you have nowhere to turn. It can seem like the ex-partner holds all the cards, while you have to simply sit back and wait for your ex-partner to decide when to let you visit.
Maybe you are a parent struggling with the day-to-day issues of child rearing, working tirelessly just to keep food on the table and clothes on your child's back. If the child support you expect to help with these expenses suddenly stops, you may be wondering what rights you have.

Should I take a settlement offer?
It is never a good idea to settle an insurance claim before speaking with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney that has experience with injury accident cases. Insurance companies have tactics they use to deny claims, redirect fault, and withhold available compensation. An insurance claim can be a complicated process and insurance adjusters can be intimidating to accident victims. An insurance company may assert that the injuries are not as serious as claimed, and attempt to settle quickly for a low amount.
Is adoption a long process?
Each adopted child has different circumstances. There are several types of adoptions that could take place, including a stepparent adoption, a private adoption or a standard adoption. Each has its own specific challenges. With the help of my firm, we will speed the process through the system as quickly as we can so that you can begin your new family and move forward with starting life together.
How much money can I expect in a settlement?Each personal injury accident is different and the worth of the injuries will depend on the circumstances of the accident and the severity of injuries and disability. Insurance companies have specific calculations they use when assigning a monetary value to the pain and suffering resulting a personal injury causing accident. The firm will protect your right to compensation and pursue legal action if necessary.
Before settling an insurance claim, contact The Layfield Law Firm, LLC to review your case. They can zealously protect your right to fair and full compensation, and your case will be given the focus and priority it deserves.
How will custody of my child be decided?It is possible for you and your spouse to come to a decision regarding child custody without the court intervening.
However, if you and your spouse cannot come to a custody terms agreement, the court will decide for you, and will look at the following:
- the child's gender and age;
- the child's mental and physical health;
- the child's relationship with each parent;
- the parents' respective lifestyles;
- each parent's ability to provide basic necessities for the child, including shelter, food, and clothing; and
- the child's preference (if they are of a certain age).
Do I need a lawyer in a personal injury claim?
Insurance company studies show that those who have legal representation in their case recover an average of 3.5 times more than those who try to get the issue resolved on their own. Insurance companies do not like to pay out large settlements, and frequently move fast with an offer, within days of a car accident or other serious injury accident. If you accept this early offer, it can be a terrible mistake; you may later require more medical treatment, or not recover in the expected amount of time, or could experience complications. I will carefully evaluate your injury case and ensure that we are pursuing every type of damage that could be claimed in your case. It is very important that you have legal counsel that will protect your right to fair compensation, and I will fight for fair treatment for you and your family. A personal injury lawyer is imperative if you suffered serious injuries. I am a Louisiana attorney that is interested in helping your resolve these issues.
