Louisiana Custody

Laws current as of
July 8, 2021


This section has information about custody in Louisiana including:

  • the factors a judge will consider when deciding custody; and
  • how committing domestic abuse, family violence, or sexual abuse affects a parent’s right to get custody and visitation.

In our general Custody page, we have information about custody that is not specific to any state. The page includes a section about how to try to transfer your custody case to a new state where you are living so that you can modify the custody order from your new state.
