Tax concerns during Louisiana property settlements

The division of property can be one of the most complicated aspects of the end of a Louisiana marriage. Property ownership may be decided in a prenuptial or post-nuptial contract, an agreement reached by spouses during separation or divorce or by a family law judge.

The Louisiana stepparent adoption process

Some Louisiana families are very different than the stereotypical mother, father and children. Divorces, remarriages and other circumstances can place individuals in the same household who have no legal relationship. Stepparents are related to a spouse but have no rights concerning the spouse's children.

Divorce and the division of Louisiana family businesses

Louisiana laws concerning marital property are unlike most other states. Most states divvy up divorce assets and debts according to equitable distribution rather than community property laws. Here, unless spouses have made earlier prior financial agreements, property settlements split ownership right down the middle.

What are social workers’ roles in child custody cases?

Louisiana social workers sometimes are asked to enter into sensitive family law cases. A social worker's sole focus in a custody dispute is the best interests of the child. A parent, attorney or the court may ask for a social worker's assistance but throughout the case, the professional remains neutral and objective.
