Can I modify a marital agreement while I'm married?

Although there was a time when couples shied away from talking about financial issues before getting married, now more and more recognize that a frank discussion can prevent financial instability in case the marriage does not last. A prenuptial agreement, an agreement signed before the couple enters into marriage, is one that changes the regime of separation of property and ancillary matters and is recognized under law in Louisiana.

As previously discussed, Louisiana recognizes two types of marriages-the traditional marriage and the covenant marriage. Regardless of the type of marriage that one is in, when a couple is having marital difficulties they believe cannot be reconciled, they may want to put an end to their marriage. Covenant marriages have certain stipulations that must be met before the couple can get a divorce, but even within a traditional divorce, the couple must have lived apart for at least six months. The exception for this is if one of the spouses has been convicted of a felony.

How do I get a divorce in a Louisiana covenant marriage?

Louisiana is one of the three states in the country that has introduced the 'covenant marriage' system. It differs from the conventional system in that marrying spouses agree to certain terms and conditions that affect their ability to get a divorce or separate from their spouse.
