Louisiana is a community property state and if you are preparing for a divorce, contacting a Lafayette LA divorce attorney is critical to protect your interests. Because of how the law is written, spouses who are divorcing are entitled to 50 percent of all property acquired during the course of a marriage. These assets include all savings accounts, retirement accounts and property even if only one spouse worked during the marriage. There are some separate items that are not included in community property such as settlements from a personal injury or cash or property that was inherited.
Some of the other considerations that must be made in the divorce process include child custody and ongoing child support.
