Visitation

Visitation Agreements in Baton Rouge

Do you want to establish or modify your visitation agreement?

During the process of a divorce or legal separation, the most important choices you make will involve your children. Once child custody has been worked out, one parent may end up with legal custody, while the other is granted visitation rights. This arrangement works well until one parent suddenly finds the time he or she is able to spend with the children have become fewer and farther between due to constant schedule changes.

If you are a parent that has been denied visitation of your child, despite the fact that the right is included in your custody agreement, you should contact a lawyer immediately. At The Layfield Law Firm, Beau Layfield will continuously do all that he can to ensure the needs of his client and the children involved are being met.

Legal Access to Your Children

During a divorce, working out the aspects of child custody is never an easy process, and usually takes a lot of time and patience to finalize an agreement that works for both parents. The interests of the child always come first, and, as a parent, you want to spend as much time with your child as possible.

When you are denied your legal right to visitation, whether due to vindictiveness or as a result of constant changes in an ex-spouse's schedule, you can feel hurt and alone. If you are not the parent with physical custody of your child, you may feel like your rights do not matter. Whether you have physical custody or not, you have the right as a parent to demand the visitation you were granted in the original child custody agreement.

If your ex-spouse has denied you the right to see your child, call Beau Layfield right away so he can help. He handles each case personally and when you retain the services of Beau Layfield, you will get Beau Layfield and no one else handling your case. He will work with you to regain your deserved visitation rights.

  • 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.

  • Isn't divorce expensive?

    A contested divorce can get expensive due to the necessity to attend trial, and document the case to present in court. Those who can work out their agreements prior to court and settle them with negotiations can not only save a lot of money, they avoid the serious stress of a court trial and exposing your personal business in court. In either case, I will help you bring the issue to a resolution with the least amount of stress, whether in a contested or uncontested divorce. I make every effort to make my services affordable so that you can have high quality legal counsel to support your case.

  • How do I know if I have a personal injury claim?

    A personal injury accident is the result of the negligent, reckless or careless action of another. An accident that occurs from the use of a dangerous or defective product is an example of a personal injury accident. Another example is a drunk driver who causes a car collision with injuries or fatalities. In the case of negligence, the victim may be eligible for monetary compensation that can include lost income, medical expenses, and pain and suffering. Beau Layfield and The Layfield Law Firm, LLC can represent a client in court and negotiate with insurance companies to pursue the maximum possible compensation.

  • How will child support be calculated?
    Child support is calculated differently depending on the state one resides in, but the general factors taken into consideration by the court when calculating payments include:
    • the standard of living of the child prior to the divorce;
    • the ability to pay of the parent giving child support;
    • the specific needs of the child, including their food, clothing, and educational costs; and
    • the needs and income of the custodial parent (the parent with primary custody of the child).
  • Do I have to go to court in order to obtain a divorce?

    Filing divorce papers with a court is the only way you will obtain a legal separation from your spouse. This applies to any other form of legal separation, including a marriage annulment. Aside from the divorce decree itself, a court is able to assist in settling other matters related to divorce, which include child custody and the distribution of marital assets.
