Unless there is a valid marriage contract to the contrary, the spouses joint own all assets earned by either spouse as community property. This includes the revenue from separately owned property, unless a document to the contrary is properly filed with the clerk of court.
Louisiana laws allow divorces on both "fault" and "no-fault" grounds. In a fault divorce, the court identifies one spouse as responsible for the demise of the marriage, but the court makes no such determination in a no-fault divorce. The distinction of the type of divorce is important because, in the state of Louisiana, only a spouse not at fault can receive alimony.
