Mental health can affect divorce legal issues

To an outsider in Louisiana, the divorce legal process can seem quite simple: spouses who no longer get along divide their property and time with their children and go their separate ways. But what happens when the law prevents an individual from even saying that he or she wants to end a marriage? That is the case in one Kentucky case that is drawing a lot of attention. As this case highlights, the law can complicate matters significantly in an effort to ensure fairness and the protection of certain rights.

How do I qualify to adopt a child in Louisiana?

If you are thinking about adopting a child, then you are considering making a huge difference in a child's life. There are many children across Louisiana who are without permanent homes, and the decision to bring one of them into your family means giving them the forever home they deserve. But the process is regulated to ensure child safety and adoptive parents' ability to provide care for the child.

What is a Louisiana covenant marriage?

Many Louisianans are familiar with the concept of no-fault divorce, in which a party filing for divorce need only cite irreconcilable differences as the grounds for dissolution. However, there is another type of divorce that is a little less common: the dissolution of a so-called "covenant marriage." Those who have entered into a covenant marriage and are now contemplating divorce will want to carefully consider their legal rights.

What counts as income for child support purposes?

Those who have children can find the divorce process especially difficult. Sure, property division and alimony disputes may come into play, and can have a substantial effect on one's financial security moving into post-divorce life, but many parents going through marriage dissolution are most concerned about how to care for their children. For custodial parents, this means seeking out a fair amount of child support from the noncustodial parent.
