“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.”  — Helen Keller

Step #1: Take the First Step

The first step is… to meet and spend time processing the issues that you face. It’s important to create the space around the emotions that may be intensifying the situation.

Father's Rights family law in new orleans

Divorce Lawyers for Men in New Orleans

Father's Rights & Child Custody

When it comes to child custody and visitation, a common misconception is  that the father always gets the short end of the stick. Actually, this is not the case. Father’s rights to custody are the same as the mother’s. The Court system has a fairly objective system for determining these rights, which is called the “best interest of the child” standard. We are the best father’s rights custody attorney in Louisiana and Mississippi to help you to fight for your child and shift any intrinsic biases and prejudices of the court to your favor and help you secure the rights you deserve.
