A divorce can shape your financial future for years to come. This can be particularly true for those who aged 50 and older, as we discussed in last week's post about gray divorce. If you are considering ending your marriage in Louisiana, you want to do everything necessary to ensure you start your post-divorce life with as much financial strength as possible.
To do this, you need to ensure that you address every divorce legal issue that may arise. You have to be prepared to handle property division matters, which includes identifying and valuing assets, and arguing for or against spousal support. If these issues are mishandled, then your soon-to-be ex-spouse could take advantage of you, leaving you with far less than you deserve.
