Title:How Do I File for Divorce in Louisiana
Category:Blogs and Diaries: Law
Description:To put a divorce in motion, you will need to officially file for divorce with the courts. Next, you need legal reasons for divorce and proclaim that it is a no-fault proceeding based on a length of separation or that the other partner is at fault for the divorce based on one of the allowable fault grounds. In most cases, filing for divorce requires a lot of waiting. The courts have to process your application and authorize it before you can take up the divorce. However, there are other issues like custody, child support, spousal support, use of home or other assets, and the like that need to be addressed more promptly. In such a circumstance, you can enter a request to have these other issues addressed while waiting for the divorce to be finalized. Once you file for divorce (and temporary orders), you will need to present your spouse with a copy of the paperwork. Once your spouse has gotten the paperwork, they need to file an answer to the divorce petition within a prescribed period of time. If spouses cannot agree on imperative topics, such as child support or property division, divorce lawyers and the courts may recommend mediation. When negotiations fail, spouses can ask the court for help by going to trial. If your spouse declines to communicate and compromise, this may be the best course of action to achieve your ideal terms for the divorce. The final judgment, also called the “Judgment of Divorce”, is filed once all of the terms for the divorce have been ordered. This is the point at which the divorce you filed for is official.
