Changes to the state’s divorce waiting period being considered

Among the things that can have impacts in divorces here in Louisiana is the state’s mandatory divorce waiting/separation period for no-fault divorces. Currently, the length of this period is different for divorcing couples with minor children than it is for couples without minor children. The former are generally subject to a one year waiting period. Meanwhile, the latter generally only have a waiting period of a half year.

Credit card considerations when divorcing

Among the things that can impact a person’s post-divorce credit situation are credit card matters. And this doesn’t just include how a person uses credit cards after the divorce. It also includes how credit card accounts opened and credit card debt built up during the marriage are handled in the divorce.

Regulatory changes can raise issues and concerns for businesses

When a person is starting a new business, there are many things it can be important for them to be aware of. This includes what regulations apply to their business, given the industry it is in. A business running afoul of such rules as it is getting off of the ground can impact its relationship with regulatory agencies, delay its ability to get into full operation and hurt its reputation.

Privileges under Louisiana law

For one family, divorce doesn’t bring an end to family portraits

When parents get divorced, one decision that will come before them is which family traditions to keep and which to move on from. One reason parents may decide to keep a particular tradition around is that they feel it will help their child. This can be seen in a story that recently popped up in the news.
