  RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS    

In order to file for divorce in Louisiana you need to meet certain jurisdictional requirements. These requirements are as follows: a filing spouse must be a resident of the state for at least 12 months prior to filing. (Louisiana Code of Civil Procedure - Article: 42)
 
(Louisiana Code of Civil Procedure - Article: 42)

  WHERE TO FILE    

The Dissolution of Marriage is typically filed in parish in which the filing spouse lives.
 
(Louisiana Code of Civil Procedure - Article: 42) The initial document filed is a Petition for Divorce.

  MEDIATION OR COUNSELING    

The parties may be required to mediate their differences upon the motion of the court or upon motion of either party. The court will require mediation when it appears to the court to be in the best interests of the child, or when it appears issues regarding custody or visitation are contested.
 
Before or after a divorce action has been initiated, the parties may agree to submit any disputed issue to mediation at any time.

  CHILD CUSTODY / CHILD SUPPORT    

Award of child custody is based on the best interest of the child. Joint custody is presumed to be in the best interest of the child. In LA, courts presume that child support is a continuous obligation of both parents, children are entitled to share in the current income of both parents, and children should not be the economic victims of divorce or out-of-wedlock birth.
 
The court will keep many factors in mind when making decisions regarding custody, including the relationship between parents and child, the child’s age and gender, the parent’s moral integrity and mental and physical health of all parties involved.
 
Among factors that the court will take into consideration deciding child custody are:
  1. The love, affection, and other emotional ties between each party and the child.
  2. The capacity and disposition of each party to give the child love, affection, and spiritual guidance and to continue the education and rearing of the child.
  3. The capacity and disposition of each party to provide the child with food, clothing, medical care, and other material needs.
  4. The length of time the child has lived in a stable, adequate environment, and the desirability of maintaining continuity of that environment.
  5. The permanence, as a family unit, of the existing or proposed custodial home or homes.
  6. The moral fitness of each party, insofar as it affects the welfare of the child.
  7. The mental and physical health of each party.
  8. The home, school, and community history of the child.
  9. The reasonable preference of the child, if the court deems the child to be of sufficient age to express a preference.
  10. The willingness and ability of each party to facilitate and encourage a close and continuing relationship between the child and the other party.
  11. The distance between the respective residences of the parties.
  12. The responsibility for the care and rearing of the child previously exercised by each party.

  NAME RESTORATION    

A former name of the spouse may be restored upon a motion.
