Louisiana residents may not believe that divorces can be achieved without conflict. Since happy marriages generally do not end, it may seem obvious that conflict and strife are a natural part of marital breakdowns. However, for some couples, peace during the divorce process is possible. Those who choose to mediate their divorce with the help of knowledgeable mediators may find both satisfaction and closure from the legal proceedings that dissolve their marriage.
Whether officers pulled you over because of your erratic driving or for an unrelated reason, you may have been shocked when police asked you to step out of the car and submit to field sobriety tests. These tests include walking a straight line, standing on one foot and allowing the officer to check the involuntary jerking in your eyes.
Raising a child is hard work, and doing so when the child's parents are no longer in a relationship can make a difficult situation even tougher. When parents in Louisiana choose to divorce or decide to end their non-marital relationships, they must make important decisions about how they will share in the raising of their kids. If they cannot work out their own child custody and visitation matters, they may need to appear in court to have a judge decide for them.
