Community Property

Community Property

Louisiana is a community property state.  Unless the spouses have opted out of the community property regime by virtue of a matrimonial agreement, generally speaking, the property and debts accumulated during your marriage are presumed to be community and will be divided equally by a Louisiana court, including real estate, savings accounts and retirement plans.  Some assets such as property acquired by gifts or inheritances during a marriage are presumed to be separate property. 

Louisiana community property laws are extremely complex and community property partititions require fact intensive analysis by a skilled family law attorney. 

As a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst ®, Kevin Edler is well prepared to ensure that all property, debts, and reimbursements are accounted for and that each partition serves his client's best interest.
