WHO’S YOUR DADDY?

Charlize Theron and Sean Penn are involved in a serious romance according to the February 10, 2014 edition of People. Penn is doing his best to win over Theron’s 2 year old son, Jackson, who takes time “to warm up to strangers”. What if Jackson begins to call Sean “Daddy”? Does Jackson’s father have cause to complain? In Louisiana, divorced parents have an obligation to encourage their children to love and respect the other parent. Encouraging a child to call a lover “Daddy” or “Mommy” could be viewed as a violation of that duty. If you are concerned that your ex is trying too hard to bring a new “mom” or “dad” into your child’s life, you should consult with an attorney.
