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.
