Louisiana Divorce Laws

Here you will find an overview of Louisiana divorce laws. From the time the Petitioner/Plaintiff files the Petition for Divorce, until the time the Final Judgment of Divorce is signed by the Judge of the District Court, Louisiana has certain procedures that need to be followed. These procedures are all in accordance with Louisiana laws, encompassing alimony, child custody and visitation, child support, and community property distribution.

Louisiana divorce laws are put in place for both the Petitioner/Plaintiff and the Respondent/Defendant to receive a fair divorce. Sometimes, hiring a divorce lawyer or mediator in your area is the best way to ensure that this happens. Or, if you and your spouse are able to cooperate and agree on everything, you can do your own Louisiana divorce online.
