First Steps in Your Custody Case

It's important that you take steps immediately, some even before you chose an attorney. Here are the steps you should take right now to help make sure things work out for you the best way possible. 

1 - Keep Things Civil

The things you do now and the decisions you make will affect your children for the rest of their lives. This is often anger at the other parent, and it is hard not to let that affect how you behave in front of the children, but take the time to calm down and be civil.

Remember: you might be dealing with the other parent for the rest of your life, not just until your children turn 18. There will be graduations, grandchildren, weddings and other occasions where you will have to deal with each other.

Civility is better for you, for your children, and for your future.

2 - Keep a Journal

Keeping a journal can help you in two very different ways: it can help you legally and also emotionally. Legally, your journal can be a useful reference and record of things that have happened in your case which you want to discuss with your lawyer or testify to in court. Emotionally, it can help you work though the pain and grief you are going through, helping you separate the emotional clouds from the level-headed "business decisions" you will have to make.

3 - Call an Attorney

Of course, the fact that you are reading this probably means you are already looking for an attorney, and that is good. It's best to get an attorney involved as quickly as possible. The longer you wait to talk to an attorney, the less effective they can be in protecting your rights and interests, since, for some things, it might be too late.

Set an appointment right away. It usually doesn't cost anything and can save you so much in the long run. If you are worried about your spouse finding out you are speaking to an attorney, there are ways we can help you keep it confidential.

Hi, I'm Morgan Allison. I am a family law attorney in Houma with over 15 years of experience. The majority of custody cases I handle are in the 32nd Judicial District Court for Terrebonne Parish, and I have represented hundreds of clients, appearing in front of every judge in this Judicial District.

I've served the community as a volunteer EMT/firefighter, District Chairman for the Boy Scouts of America, and currently as a member of the board of directors of the Houma Rotary Club.

Aside from being a lawyer, I am a consummate "computer nerd."  I've been on the web as far back as the web has existed. I love to try to bring my computer and technological skills to the service of my clients, which I think will become apparent when you experience the unique services and features we provide.

"What Makes You Different?"

Here are some of the unique features of my law practice that make us stand out from all the others:

Flat Fees

No surprises! We only charge flat fees for our services. You will know before work starts on your case exactly how much the representation well cost. And, we can often provide an affordable payment plan that will fit your budget.

Digital Convenience

We digitize all of our documents. This means you can review any document you need right on your smart phone or computer. This speeds up the review and approval of your documents, and is more efficient and convenient.

Long-Term Support

I look at the "big picture" rather than just the immediate problem in front of me. I know what you are going through is rough, but you will get through it, and there will be new challenges to face down the road. When I take on a client, I look beyond the issues they are currently facing and help them head off potential problems in their future. 


If you have a divorce or custody issue, you need to talk to a lawyer right away! The sooner a lawyer can get started working for you, the better the results will be in the long run. Steps need to be taken as soon as possible to protect you and your interests.
