What Property Can Be Divided?
Louisiana is a community property state. In a community property state, divorcing couples must equally split marital property between both parties in a marriage. This equal split can become more complex because spouses may have individual property, not easily divided assets, a prenuptial agreement or another abnormal situation. Our attorney will work closely with you to determine what kinds of property may be divided in your divorce, and we will then create an aggressive plan to protect your assets.
Many types of assets can be divided in a divorce, including:
- A family home and other property
- Businesses and investments
- Shared debt
- Savings accounts
- Retirement and investment accounts

Our attorney will guide you through the process and help you negotiate with your former spouse. If a mutually beneficial compromise is not available, he will not hesitate to take your case before a family court judge.
