Making The Complex Understandable

December 2017 Archives

Here's how the new tax structure will change spousal support

Few Louisiana residents enjoy making alimony payments. That said, many are at least partially comforted by the fact that spousal support payments can be claimed as a dollar-for-dollar tax deduction on their income taxes. That deduction is slated to end, however, based on the freshly passed and signed Republican tax bill. 

Child custody and a narcissistic parent: tips for success

A custody battle is never easy, neither legally nor emotionally. Going through a child custody case with a narcissist can be even more of a challenge. Many Louisiana spouses live for years with a partner who is self-centered and manipulative. When the decision is made to end the marriage, those character traits often take center stage. 

Thoughts on divorce after the age of 50

Many Louisiana residents get close to retirement and begin taking a closer look at their lives and goals. For some, that examination reveals deep doubts about whether remaining married is the best way to enter the golden years of retirement. More and more people are seeking divorce after the age of 50. For some, there will be surprises along the way. 

Reciprocal wills may be part of a couple's estate plan

Estate planning is not just for rich people. There are many reasons why most of the less wealthy residents of Louisiana would also benefit from an estate plan. One strong motivator would be if there are minor children. In that situation, the parents would make out mutually reciprocal wills, leaving their estates to each other and then to the children, usually in equal shares, in the event that both parents are deceased.

Child support does not automatically include college costs

For many Louisiana spouses, planning for the future is hard while in the middle of a divorce. Unfortunately, the decisions made during this challenging time will shape the financial lives of both parties for many years to come. One thing to consider is the fact that child support does not automatically cover the cost of a college education. Unless financial obligations for tuition and expenses are laid out in the divorce agreement, those costs could fall squarely on the shoulders of one parent.
