Explaining child custody and divorce to the children

Research shows that divorcing couples in New Orleans and the rest of the country often fail to adequately explain to their children what's going on during the split. When that happens, kids tend to feel more anxious and upset, which can affect their long-term development and relationships with their parents. Although couples don't have to give the exact reasons for the divorce, they do need to explain what the divorce will mean to the family and children.

Results of paternity tests have significant impact

By the time a person in New Orleans requests a paternity test to confirm the biological parent of a child, there is likely already a contentious dispute underway. Either a man might not believe that he is the father of a child or the mother may need to prove biology to collect child support payments. In any case, it can quickly grow into a bitter battle.
