If you are divorcing in Louisiana
Mar 2, 2021
If you are divorcing in Louisiana, there are many factors you should consider before you choose to file.
You will need to determine if it is the correct time to file for divorce. Finances, job loss, housing, daycare, and child support if there are children, are just a few factors. There are many more that an attorney can help you discover.
If you are divorcing because of economic hardship, you will need to determine if you have enough assets to support both parties and any children. Remember that now your marriage is divided by 2 now and the costs will double. Double home rentals/purchases and double lawyer fees are just a couple of the items that get doubled up. Finances and Bankruptcy are some of the top contributing factors in divorces.
After doing the homework, you can easily get the right "feel" of how a divorce will impact you economically as well as emotionally. Now that you know what to do, it is a good idea to do the work. Make sure you do your due diligence.
