Community Property

New Orleans Area Property Division Attorney

One aspect of a divorce that is often the source of many arguments is property division. Most couples have a difficult time deciding how property should be divided. It is important to note that Louisiana is a community property state, which can result in further arguments over what is actually considered marital property and is subject to division.

Community property is the assets and debts accumulated during a marriage. Community assets can include household items, vehicles, a home or land, vacation or hunting camps, businesses, rental houses, retirement accounts, or portfolios. Community debts may include credit cards and balances on department store accounts, personal loans, school loans, and mortgages.
