In a Louisiana divorce, one of the most complicated and frequently contentious issues is how much spousal support, if any, one former spouse will be ordered to pay the other. There are many factors that go into determining this, and it is imperative for both sides to understand them. Final periodic support should be considered for former spouses who are ordered to pay and former spouses who will receive payment.
For many families, divorce can have devastating social and financial consequences. The drawn-out and bitter process of fighting over the terms of your divorce can wreak havoc on the interpersonal relationship you share with your ex. This is of particular concern for spouses who have children. After all, they will likely be seeing one another several times a week for many years.
