Lacie Colette F'reeman Bergeron is at a loss as to how the allegations brought to the erttention of the Trial Coult do not warrant, at minimum, psychological evaluations of the parties and a ctistody evaluation to determine the best interests of the rninor children.

CONCLUSION By even a superficial review of the allegations provided, thele is good cause shown for the withholding of visitation by Lacie Colette Fleernan Bergeron. fhat the enforcernent the

curreut child custody Judgment places these rninor children irreparable injury aud hann. The JLrdgment rendered by the

failure to abide by same is improper and incorrect. Lacie Colette Freeman Bergerou prays this Honorable Court stay the proceedings of the

Trial Court aud thereaftet reverse the Judgment of the Trial Coult; ordering the Plaintiff

to

provide Def,endant with unsupervised visitation and her incarceration. Further praying this

Ilonorable Courl require the parlies to submit to psychological evaluations and a custody evaluation tr: determine the best interests of the minor children.

a

rnultitude of issues, including Conternpt for Failure to abide by Judgrnent of the Court filed by Defendant, Rudy Mark Bergeron. More specifically, Defendant sought contempt against

psychological evaluations and child custody evaluations.

LAW AND.AITGUMIINT T'he

Trial Court erred in finding Lacie Colette Frcenran Bergeron in Contempt of

Courf and firiling to find good cause by Lacie Colette Freernan Ilergernn to rvithhottn vlsitation of the minor" cllildren to Defenclant, Rutly Mark tricrgeron, Jr. Plaintiff avers that the irreparable injury and hann may result to the rninor children in this actiou

if

Delendant is allowed unsupervised visitalion. As plovicled above, Del'enclant, Rudy

Mark Bergeron, Jr. has admitted to: tluee (3) previous arrests for driving while intoxicatecl, prior

alcohoi abuse treattnents, previous illegal drug abuse. Further admitting that he is currently

living r,vith a wornan, to whom he is not married, that has been convictecl

ancl has only rccently

completed probation for possession of methamphetarnincs. Det-endant proviclecl that this is the sanle wol11an that the minor children r.vere left with while he was at work during his entire

visitation periocl, rninus one

(l)

and one-half (l12) hours.

Defendant's sister, Alicia Bergeron then testified to the Trial Court that rvhen she was

as

ntiuor, her father, while intoxicated, attempted to kiss her and grab hcr breast. 'fhis is the same inclividual that Sr,rsan Webster stated she allowed around the minor children during Rudy Marrk 13ergeron Jr.'s prior visitation.

Plaintift, Lacie Colette

F-reeman Bergeron avers that

visitation may be withheld Lrpon

sliowing of good cause. More specifically stating that under LSA-RS 9:346(G):

a

It shall bc an

affinnative delense tirat the failure to allow ol exercise child visitation rights pursuant to a ct'rurtordered schedule was by tnutual consent, beyond the contlol of the del'enciant, or icrr othcr goocl causc shorvn.' Emphasis Added.

Plaintiff avers that lailure to allor,v visitation fbr the protection of the health and wellbeing of the minor children is good cause and therein not a conternptible action.

TIle Trial Courf erred in sentencing Lacie Colette Freernan Bergeron to ten (10) days in the I'arish Jail rvith all but trvenfy-fout"

(2$ hours suspendecl.

In linding I-acie Colette Freernan Bergeron in Contempt, the Tlial Court orderecl the Plainliil'to (10) days in tlie Parish Jail with all but tr.r'enty-flour (24) hours suspended. Plaintillavers that this is a misapplication of statute ancl lar,v.

{}[]4


More specifically providing (in perlinent part):

LSA-RS 9:346: Action fbl failure to exercise ol to erllow

visitation, custody

or time rights pulsuant to

coult-orclered

schedule; judgment and awards

C. If the action

is for the failure to allow child custody,

visitation, or time rights pursuant to a court-ordered schedule, and the petitioner is the prevailing party, the defendant shall be lield in contempt of court and the court shall award to the petitioner':

(1) A reasonable sum for any actual

expenses incurred by

the petitioner by the loss of his visitation, custody or time rights.

(2)

Additional visitation, custody or time rights with the

cirild equal to the time lost,

(3) All attorney

fees and costs of the proceeding.

(.4) All costs for counseling for the child which rnay be necessitated by the defendant's failule to allow visitation, custody,

or time rights with the child.

Lacie Colette F-reeman Bergeron states that the Trial Court overstepped its authority by ordering incalceration when the allowable judgments are delineated above. Further, PlaintilT states that the use of incarceration for failure to provide visitation wiren there are issues of alcohol, drug, and sexual abuse are at issue is a misapplication of law and requires further investigation by the Trial Court above the enforcement ol custody order that rvas created without orders fbr counseling for any substance abuse allegations.

The T'rial Court erred in denying Lacic Colctte Freernan llergeron's pl':lyer for psychotrogical evaluations and child custody evaluations.

Providing the above allegations of prior alcohol, drug, and sexual abuse, the Flaintiff,

Lacie Colette Freetnan Bergeron avers that psycliological evaluations are necessary lbr the protection of the minor children. Further averring that LSA-RS 9:33 1, provided in pertinent part, states: 'fhe coutl tnay order an evaluation

of a party or the child in a custody or visitation

proceeding fol good cause shown.

RULE FOR CONTEMPT FOR FAILURE TO FOLLOW AN ORDER OF THE COURT AND FOR CHANGE OF GUSTODY

NoW lNTo coURT, through undersigned counsel, comes, Rudy lVlark Bergerop, Jr., who respectfully represents as follows: 1.

On December 21, 2009, the parties appeared before this Honorable Court on a Rule for

contempt as Lacie colette Freeman Bergeron was withholding visitation of the clrildren from Rudy Mark Bergeron, Jr. 2.

The parties reached an agreement on that date where Rudy Mark Bergeron, Jr. would

be able to exercise his Christmas visitation with the minor children. Lacie Golette Freeman Bergeron agreed to transport the children to Rudy Mark Bergeron, Jr. on December 21,2OOg by 4:00

p.m. (See attached Stipulation, marked as Exhibit 1) 3.

Rudy Mark Bergeronr Jr. waited for the children to arrive on Decemb er December 30, 2009, Rudy Mark Bergeron,

21

,2009. As of

Jr. has not seen his children. Rudy

Mark

Bergeron, Jr. did not get to see his children for Christmas visitation and has not seen the children since the summertime. 4.

Mover avers that Defendant-ln-Rule should be held in Contempt of Court for her failure to follow previous orders of this Court, and she should be punished accordingly. 5,

It has been necessary for mover to retain the services of an attorney at law to represent

him in these proceedings. Mover is entitled to, and hereby seeks an order of tlris court awarding to him reasonable attorney's fees and all costs of these proceedings. 6.

On December 21,2009, Lacie Colette Freeman Bergeron went to the

15th Judicial

District Court, Parish of Lafayette, and filed a Temporary Restraining order against Rudy Mark

Bergeron, Jr. apparently immediately after going to court in Assumption Parish: (See attached atl"Il,-ryL,

lt

&Z*tr1*

"u"

Exhibit

2)

Her four pages of reasoning for the restraining order does not give any viable reason

A PROFES5IONAf LAW CORFOf,ATION

q0,

sot

t749

GiAY, LOUIs'ANA

for: obtaining

a restraining order except that she did not want to turn over the children to their

'O359

s5fl


father even after agreeing to do

so. At trial, the petitioner, upon her attorney,s advice,

dismissed the Temporary Restraining order. (See attached Judgment of Dismissat Exhibit 3). 7.

on December 28, 2009, Lacie Golette Freeman Bergeron,

again went to the

1Sth

Judicial District Court, Parish of Lafayette, and filed a Motion for Change of Venue claiming that she was prejudiced by her first attorney and that the Judgment of the 23d Judicial District Courl

put the minor children in imminent danger of abuse and neglect by the defendant, Rudy Marlr BerEeron,

Jr.

(See attached Exhibit 4) B.

The plaintiff, Lacie Colette Freeman Bergeron, was represented in the Lafayette matter by attorney Charley Hutchens. The matters set before the 15th Judicial District Court were dismissed without any type of hearing or trial. Charley Hutchens brokered some visitation

for Rudy Mark Bergeron, Jr. at that time. Rudy Mark Bergeron, Jr. was allowed to see his children on January B, 9 and 10, 2010 with Lacie Golette Freeman Bergeron bringing the children from Patterson

to Houma and picking them up in the early afternoon on $unday,

January 10, 2010. 9.

Since that time, Lacie Colette Freeman Bergeron has refused to allow the clrildren to go with their father claiming that the children were sick. Lacie Golette Freeman Hergeron is not presently represented by counsel in Assumption Parish and called Rudy Mark Bergeron,

Jr.'s attorney to advise that she and Rudy Mark Bergeron, Jr. had come up with a visitation sclredule for the weekend of January 30th and 31"tof 2010. .Conversation between Lacie

Golette Freeman Bergeron and Mr. Bergeron's attorney evidenced a willingness on Lacie Colette Freeman Bergeron's part to let Mr. Bergeron have the children from Saturclay at 6:30

a.m. until Saturday night around dark and then again Sunday from 6:30 a.m. until Sunday evening sometime. (See attached Exhibit A), 10.

it is quite evident that Lacie Golette Freeman Bergeron still wants visitation only on her terms and not that of the Court. 11

It is clear from the actions of Lacie Golette Freeman Bergeron and the pleadings that she has filed that she has no intention whatsoever of allowing Rudy Mark Bergeron, Jr. to be a atl.I[-u7L,

!i,*"

parl of his children's life and that she will never facilitate their relationship with their father.

12.

The petitioner, Rudy Mark Bergeron, Jr., avers that it would be in the best interests of the minor children for the domiciliary status over the children be changed to lrim and that his child support be terminated if the court decides to change domiciliary status to lrim. 13.

Petitioner thinks that

a

psychological evaluation and continuing counseling

of Lacle

Colette Freeman Bergeron may be necessary for the safety and welfare of the children"

WHEREFORE, movers prays

that

Defendant-ln-Rule,

l-acie Golette Freeman

Bergeron, be served with a certified copy of this Rule and she be ordered to appear and show cause at a date and time to be determined by this Honorable Court, why the above relief should not be granted. Respectfully submitted

Subject:

Rudy, I just got otf the phone with the kids doctor and it is under his recommendal-ion that they not go at all until they are both fever free and done with tlreir antibiotics. I tried to give you some time, inrhicl'l Vor-r agreed to with me on the phone and then lied to your attorney. lf yqu feel the need to conl.il"rue this harassment irr tlie courts,then so be it. I have offered to sit down ant.discuss what is irr tlre lrest interest of our children numerous times to no avail. I no longer am representecl by alr attorney,clue Lo the fact that I felt like this was all going to work out. However you still insist on lying anrJ hicling yr;ur dirty deeds. The coutt order that you are so forrd of holding me to, also states tlrat yoLr are l.o rJo a lelnr things,that have beern left undone. We can continue back and forth filing contempt charges ancJ botl'l stay bro[<e. Tlrat is not in the best interest of these l<ids. lf you feel the rreed t.o file contemlrt charges,l am sonJ/ you feel that way. This time however I have documentation to bacl< r-rp nry decision {,o caner for our ill children ln the comfort and convienence of their home. Ethan is still runnirrg fever,witlr -l-uresrJay. around the clocl< tyk:nol and motrin. He didn't start his second antibiotic,{ in 2 vireelqr;,} uni.il You mair picl< tlrenr up on Friday in Lafayette next weel<end at 5:00 PM , healtlr permitting.
