Attorney Assisting With Divorce and Dissolution of Assets in Shreveport

Divorce and Dividing Assets

Going through a divorce can be intensely draining and, at times, emotion can cloud judgment. The Law Offices of Ginger West Johnson is focused on providing comprehensive divorce litigation services that take into account your best interests as well as those of your children.

There are many intricacies of Louisiana divorce law, and as a longtime in-state divorce attorney, Ginger is well-versed in all of them. If you’ve been a resident of Louisiana for at least one year, you may file for divorce in the state of Louisiana. The state will recognize both fault and no-fault divorces, as well as those requested because one spouse lives separately from the other for a period of at least six months. If the two of you share children, this period increases to one year.

Generally, divorcing couples have to work through five main issues in order to be granted a divorce. These include:

  • Whether spousal support will be granted
  • Asset and debt division
  • Whether child support will be required from either party

  • Parenting time considerations
  • Parenting responsibility considerations

At the Law Offices of Ginger West Johnson, our qualified divorce attorney will work hard to help you and your spouse finalize agreements related to these issues with the hope that the divorce won’t be contested.

Community Property Considerations

Louisiana is a community property state, which means that all assets or property acquired throughout the marriage are considered the property of both parties. In some situations, this means assets are evenly divided 50/50, but this isn’t always the case. Our divorce lawyer will utilize her knowledge of the state’s property-division laws in an attempt to distribute community property fairly and seamlessly.
