Baton Rouge spousal support attorney, Steve LeBlanc, has more than 40 years of experience helping clients sort through the financial details of their divorce. He provides approachable legal advice on spousal support/alimony and community property division. Let us help you in seeking spousal support/alimony.
Seeking Spousal Support/Alimony
Divorce should not leave either spouse in a state of financial turmoil. If you wish to maintain a reasonable lifestyle after your divorce, consider seeking spousal support/alimony. There are many factors that the courts in Louisiana consider in determining whether temporary or permanent spousal support is necessary, such as:
- Duration of the marriage
- Infidelity by either spouse
- Financial irresponsibility
- Domestic abuse
Equitable Community Property Division
Louisiana is a community property state. This means that unless property settlement has been determined in a prenuptial or postmarital agreement, any property acquired during the marriage is considered "marital property." This marital property is divided equally between the two parties. The same goes for any debt acquired during the marriage.
Division of assets in the divorce process can be highly contentious, especially when property held by one partner before the marriage has become commingled with marital assets. We can help you during this process to make sure that you seek no less than what the law entitles you to.
