Community property is divided equally between the spouses. If an asset cannot be divided, such as a house, the Louisiana court will award other property or cash to compensate the spouse for his or her portion. The court can divide property unequally if it finds a valid reason. For example, Louisiana divorce laws allow a spouse to be reimbursed for the cost of the other spouse's education expenses during the marriage. In this instance the court could legally award more marital property to one spouse as a means of reimbursement. If the court deviates from an equal division, however, it must explain why it did so in its final judgment of divorce.
