Division of Property
Louisiana is a community property state. This means that property and debts accumulated during your marriage are presumed to be community and will be divided equally, including real estate, savings accounts and retirement plan accounts. There are a few exceptions: gifts and inheritances received during your marriage are yours to keep, as long as you kept these assets separate.
At Oriol & Edler, LLC, we will guide you through the process of dividing your marital property. With a degree in accounting, lawyer David Oriol is well prepared to ensure that all property and debts are accounted for and that their division is truly equitable between both parties.
What About My Separate Property?
If you brought property to your marriage, those assets are your separate property and do not have to be divided with your spouse as long as you kept the property separate.
