Possible remedies after a breached contract

In order for a Louisiana business to operate effectively it undoubtedly may have to enter into agreements with vendors and other entities. For example, a restaurant that wishes to serve fresh fish to its patrons may establish a contractual relationship with a fish monger for the regular delivery of certain items that the restaurant wants to keep on its menu. The fish seller and the restaurant may create an agreement for deliveries every Monday and Thursday at a certain time and for a certain fee.

In this example, readers are asked to consider what might happen if the fish seller failed to makes is regular Thursday delivery. Upon discovering that the delivery was not made, the restaurant contacts the fish seller and is told that it will not be able to provide any fish until the next week. The restaurant may be caught in the difficult position of scrambling to find a replacement vendor, updating its menu and managing a host of other delivery-related issues due to the fish seller's breach of their agreement.

Legal issues in the realm of family relations

It may be a misconception among readers of this Louisiana legal blog that family law attorneys only handle divorces. While divorce is a common reason that individuals may seek the counsel of attorneys who work in this field, family law encompasses much more than just ending marriages. It can cover the creation of new family relationships, the modification of agreements that govern family interactions and more.

Consider, for example, all of the issues that occur along with the separation of two unmarried parents. The individuals were never married and therefore have no legal relationship to break, but they do share children. They must therefore work out how they will share the custody of their kids, how they will jointly provide for their kids' emotional and financial needs and how they will make changes to those support and custody matters when the need arises.
