  1. In the state of LOUISIANA Can a new Will leave out their Adult Children and be valid?

    A valid Will can exclude adult children provided they are not deemed to be forced heirs. A forced heir is a child that has not attained the age of 24, or is physcially or mentally incapable of taking care of their estate. There is some case law in various circuits that expand the meaning of the physical or mental incapacity. I recommend seeking the advise of an attorney in your area to review the Judgment of Possession from your mother's succession and the current will to discuss issues of...

    The 19 year old can go to jail and be required to register as a sexual offender for statutory rape -- this can occur even if the 15 year old says it is a consentual relationship. You they believe they truly love one another then they will stay away from each other until the 19 year old can no longer be prosecuted for statutory rape.

    Your question raises a lot of issues that need to be address immediately -- is there a Will, is she included in the will? If there is not a Will, was the fiance the father of the children you mentioned? Is your friend's name on title to the property where the house was built? Is she a borrower on the mortgage? If there is no Will then she is not entitled to any inheritance under Louisiana law. If he is not the father of the children (if he is the children will inherit with or without a will)...

  4. Who has legal rights to keep the car?

    Answered over 3 years ago.

    The titled owner has the rights to the car -- if titled in both names then you are co-owners and either of you have the right to possess the car. If titled in your name then you can prohibit him from having possession of the car. If the note is in your name with him as co-borrower then he is obligated to pay if you fail to pay. However, he may have an action against you for reimbursement of the sums he has to pay for your failure to pay. Just something to keep in mind.

    You can ask that all witnesses be sequestered so they are not present in the courtroom except during their own testimony (excepting you and the child's father). You cannot remove him as a witness, but your attorney will be able to cross-examine him after his direct testimony.

    Based on the information you have provided, you will not be able to terminate the father's parental rights. You may have a case for sole custody and restricted vistiation, or an intrafamily adoption if you are married, your spouse wishes to adopt the child and the adoption is in the child's best interest.

  7. Will a judge say I can't have my child around my girlfriend?

    1 lawyer answer

    The mother of the child will not be able to prohibit you from having your child around your girlfriend, unless the judge determines there is a reason to prohibit her from being around your child - i.e. she fails drug screens, has history of child abuse, etc. She may be able to prohibit your girlfriend from living in the home when you child is present and/or spending the night when your child is present. You should seek the advise of an attorney and obtain a custody judgment that can clarify...

    Unfortunately, in Louisiana you cannot have his rights terminated unless there is someone ready and willing to adopt your son -- such as your current husband. There is no law in Louisiana that enables deadbeats to sign away their rights -- if that was the case we would have a lot of children with only one parent. Regarding child support, it is possible to get a wage garnishment if the father is employed, garnishment of his taxes, revocation of Louisiana licenses, etc. You should seek the...

  9. What is the required age for overnight visits with the non custodial parent in Louisiana?

    Answered almost 4 years ago.

    1. Angelia Fontenot Huszar
    1 lawyer answer

    There is no "required age" before a child has overnight visits with the non-domiciliary paretn. Louisiana law presumes that both parents shall have equal time with their minor children, so overnight visitation often begins during infancy. It is the burden of the person trying to decrease the time, require supervised vistaition, etc. to prove that equal time is not in the best interest of the child. The statutue sets out factors for the judges to utilize to determine the "best interest" of...

    Based on the information you provided it does appear that an intrafamily adoption is appropriate. Costs vary from region to region so I would contact attorneys in the Houma area for estimates.
