Where can I find out more information about custody in Louisiana?

The following links may be helpful:

  • For information about grandparent’s custody and visitation rights, you can read the resource guide published by the Governor’s office of Elderly Affairs.  
  • The Louisiana State Bar Association has information about custody in their divorce brochure, including information about the factors a judge will consider when determining what custody arrangement is in the child’s best interests.
  • has additional links with Louisiana-specific custody information.
