What you need to know
Even though the relationship between you and your spouse has changed and you may no longer be living together, until you are legally divorced, you are still married. The legal ramifications of being married vary from state to state, but generally speaking, until you are divorced you and your spouse have certain rights and obligations to one another. In general, until you are divorced not only can you not remarry but also anything you obtain may be subject to a claim of ownership, in whole or in part, by your spouse, and the future ownership of assets and property already obtained may be unclear.

Hire a Louisiana Divorce Lawyer or MediatorIf your divorce is contested and/or you need legal advice, you will most likely be hiring a divorce Lawyer or Mediator to begin your Louisiana divorce proceedings. All it takes is making a phone call to set up an initial consultation, which is often offered free of charge.
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.
