Louisiana Divorce Lawyer & Family Law Attorney
Across the country, marriages are coming to an end more frequently than ever before. In fact, recent studies show that 40% of all marriages end in divorce. Marriages end for a variety of reasons. Infidelity, abuse, or simply falling out of love. Whatever the reason, support and guidance is needed to help ease the transition following married life.
There are many obstacles to overcome following the break up of a marriage. The division and allocation of property and assets is one of the most important and difficult tasks. Often, if there is no prenuptial agreement, the battle for shared assets can become heated.
