Making The Complex Understandable

Divorce in Louisiana and the 4 A's

When it comes to marriages ending, chances are one or more of the four A's might have been involved. When Louisiana couples find themselves thinking about divorce, it could mean that addiction, agendas, adultery or abuse had parts to play in the breakdown of the marriage -- if not all of those, then perhaps one or two. Those are pretty hardcore reasons for a marriage splitting up as opposed to reasons considered to be less intense, such as growing apart, lack of communication, different life goals or no longer having anything in common.

Family law: Nonbiolgocal same-sex parents and adoption

Gay married couples who have children may run into a snag when it comes to the legalities of parentage. A married same-sex spouse of a nonbiological child in Louisiana may need to look into second parent adoption under family law in order to have any legal say in his or her child's life. In other words, when the child biologically belongs to one of the spouses, but not the other, in order to safeguard parental rights of the nonbiological parent, formal adoption may be necessary.

Louisiana elder law: What's working and what changes are needed

Seniors are among the most vulnerable individuals in society. Elder law aims to protect these older Louisiana residents. There are things that have been working, but there are other areas that still need work. The abuse and neglect of older people is unacceptable and unwarranted. A United Nations International Plan of Action agrees that elder abuse is both a human rights and a public health issue.

Estate planning is particularly important for women in Louisiana

Estate plans are vitally important for every adult. But it is particularly important for women in Louisiana to give the estate planning process some consideration. Many women don't pause to take stock of their financial lives. Many dismiss that part of their lives altogether, or leave it up to a spouse or a partner. Experts say that is a mistake.
