Community Property in Louisiana

Baton Rouge Divorce Attorney - Helping with Property Division

If you are going through the process of divorce, then you must address the issue of property division. This can be one of the most highly contested issues in the entire process, and you must be sure that you are not deprived of what you need. Louisiana is a community property state, so in the case of divorce, the courts will divide marital assets evenly between the spouses. This means that any debt and any assets incurred throughout the course of the marriage will be evenly distributed between the marital parties at the time of divorce.

If you have entered into a marriage and you wish to start a business on your own, then it is important to know that this is considered an asset and will be counted as community property. While any marital property will be evenly divided in Louisiana, there are the ways that an agreement can protect your assets and shield you from debt.
