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. Because it is not always easy to reach agreements for divorce settlements, the parties involved may go back and forth hoping to come to the terms they desire. As a result, individuals may need to determine what legal strategies could work for their circumstances. 

Louisiana residents may be interested in family law litigation currently taking place in another state. The high-profile case involves founder of Cancer Treatment Centers of America Richard Stephenson. Stephenson and his now ex-wife, Alicia, were married in 1991, and Alicia Stephenson filed for divorce in 2009. Their marriage was official dissolved earlier this year. However, they are still facing disagreements. 

The main issue reported revolves around the $400,000 per month that Stephenson's ex-wife is seeking in alimony. She believes this amount will allow her to maintain the lifestyle she became used to while married to the multimillionaire. However, Stephenson argues that he does not have the means to pay that amount in support every month. At the time of the report, a judge had not yet ruled on the issue. 

Divorce issues can affect each individual differently. Therefore, Louisiana residents may want to determine how their specific details could impact the ways in which they move forward with their cases. If desired, individuals may consult with experienced attorneys who could provide information on what legal avenues could be open to them and how to work toward their desired goals.
