It is not unusual for Louisiana parents to struggle when it comes to keeping up with child support. Unfortunately, these struggles could potentially lead to parents being put in jail for back support payments.

Elder law: Health care directives may be useful planning tool

As Louisiana residents get older, they may begin to think more about how they would like certain aspects of their health care addressed.

Individual details could affect Louisiana divorce cases

When dealing with many of the issues that come with ending a marriage, individuals may find themselves facing extended litigation.

Elder law: Avoiding estate planning may hinder Louisiana families

Many Louisiana residents will likely leave behind some assets after they die. However, some individuals may find some aspects of estate planning intimidating and avoid the process altogether.

Could I benefit from divorce mediation?

When divorce is inevitable, you naturally may be worried about how you will get through the process as painlessly as possible, both emotionally and financially.

When substantial wealth and various assets are part of a marriage estate, individuals may face certain complications if they decided to end their marriages.

Elder law mistakes could add complications to Louisiana estates

Though some Louisiana residents may feel that they can handle creating an estate plan on their own, there is the possibility that errors could be made. Elder law has many facets, and if a will or other estate planning document is not properly created, there is a chance that surviving loved ones could face difficulties in executing the document. There are several mistakes that could lead to such complications.

Divorce may have major financial impact on Louisiana residents

As Louisiana residents and individuals across the country continue to grow older, many married parties may find themselves considering whether to end their marriages.

However, those risks could be calculated and addressed.
