As a divorce attorney in Louisiana, people are always asking me how to file for legal separation. Unlike other states, Louisiana does not recognize legal separation. In Louisiana, you are considered married until the time in which the Judge signs the final judgment of divorce. Generally there are two types of divorces. You can filed either at the beginning of the separation (this is termed a 102 divorce) or you can file once the time peiord required by law is up (this is termed a 103 divorce). Each have their own advantages. Want to know which one is best for your situation? Call us and set up a FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION  to discuss your issues. 225-706-3333.
