Making The Complex Understandable

Protecting Louisiana seniors with dementia suffering from abuse

There is nothing more heartbreaking than seeing an elderly loved one get taken advantage of. It's especially disconcerting when the senior has dementia. But there are some unscrupulous types in Louisiana who wouldn't bat an eye scamming an elderly person out of his or her money. It is one of the worst and most prevalent forms of elder abuse today.

Breaking divorce news to young children in Louisiana

Most parents go to great lengths to protect their children from pain, whether that be physical or emotional. Louisiana parents who have decided that divorce is the only way out of a painful marriage have the tough job of breaking the news to their kids. No matter how old children are, finding out their parents are separating or divorcing is never an easy thing to process. There may be a more gentle way of telling a younger child without totally devastating his or her life.

Options for dividing the family home upon divorce in Louisiana

There are certain assets that must be divided when a couple divorces. Louisiana couples who own a home and who are in the midst of a divorce need to decide how they're going to deal with their family home. It may be the most emotionally-charged conversation soon-to-be former spouses may have since a family home is tied to many memories. There are basically three options available in this situation.

Elderly financial abuse from a family member

Financial abuse, while different than physical abuse, still takes a tremendous toll on a person, especially an elderly person. The elderly are frequent targets of financial abuse because they have more assets and may struggle with certain issues -- dependency on caregivers, for instance, or mental diseases -- that make it easier to take advantage of them.

Visitation in Louisiana: When one parent won't see the kids

When children are left looking out the window for the parent they're expecting only to be disappointed yet again, it can wear on their self-confidence and sense of security. Their parents may be divorced, but they're very much still connected to their moms and dads and inconsistent visitation is not in a child's best interests, nor is it conducive to his or her positive mental health. Louisiana parents who don't show up for their kids are not placing their needs first because children need connection with those who matter most in their lives.
