Special considerations for child custody agreements in Louisiana

There are many things that you need to think about if the relationship between you and your child's other parent ends. Whether you are going through a divorce or simply split up, you will have to determine what is going to happen with child custody. We are here to help you determine how to address the child custody considerations that are present in your case.

Was alimony awarded in your divorce? Then keep track of it

When it comes to divorce, there are a lot of contentious issues that can cause former spouses to argue and debate. One such issue is spousal support, which is also often called alimony. Spousal support is awarded in some, but not all, divorce cases. It sees one of the spouses pay the other spouse on either a temporary or indefinite basis so that the post-divorce life of the spouses are roughly fair in the eyes of a judge. Remember, though, "fair" in this context doesn't mean "equal."

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.

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

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.
