Who is going to get custody of the children?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions of parents going through divorce, "Who's going to get the custody of the children?"
In Louisiana, custody can be determined primarily two ways; one is by consent of the parties where you and the other spouse agree on an arrangement that benefits and is beneficial and works for both of you and the children.
The other way is having a judge decide custody.
If the parents can't agree, which is not always possible, it will go to court and a judge will make a determination based on the best interests of the child.
