If there is one thing that can cause a lot of distress during a divorce and afterward, it is the payment of child support. Some parents believe that they should not pay child support if they are seeing their children often enough. Other parents need and rely on child support to provide children with the necessities, such as a stable home, food, clothing and education.
Louisiana is a community property state, which means that all community property is split evenly upon divorce. If you are wealthy and have many assets, this can be a good thing, because you and your spouse split your assets fairly and move on. If you're struggling with massive debts, however, this can be extremely frustrating.
