Louisiana firm crafting compelling family law arguments

In our last blog post we discussed a messy high-asset divorce where some family law issues have lingered for years. It's not uncommon for these matters to arise from time-to-time, even post-divorce. One parent may want to seek sole custody of their child, another may want to modify an existing child support obligation, or, as was the circumstance in the case discussed last week, one former spouse may want to modify an alimony obligation.

Divorce legal issues can linger for years after divorce

Regardless of who you are, your financial standing or your family makeup, getting a divorce can force you to deal with some serious legal issues. The outcome of these matters can reshape your financial and emotional future, and may even define how much time you get to spend with your children. Although many couples are able to resolve these family law legal issues in an amicable way, many others are forced to take their marriage dissolution to court where arguments are made and a judge issues a ruling to settle the matters.

Alimony and a spouse's educational expenses

For many Louisianans, divorce is much more than an emotional breakup, it is a financial one, too. Choosing to end a marriage may mean leaving a financial lifeline and a lifestyle that an individual once enjoyed. This can be stressful, especially when one spouse gave up their career for the betterment of their spouse or family. These individuals might feel cheated out of their future, and might be left wondering whether they should stay in their ruined marriage simply for financial purposes.
