Avoiding contract disputes with sound drafting of documents

Our readers may have had the experience of discussing plans with another person only to walk away believing that they were in agreement about their intentions, but later to find out that they had different expectations for their strategies. For example, two people may agree that they will purchase an item together, and while one person may believe that they will share equally in the cost of the purchase, the other person may believe that they will be providing less of an investment in their joint purchase.

What will happen to your property when you divorce?

Louisiana residents may not give a lot of thought to how the ownership if their property is structured when they are in a happy and committed marriage. For example, if their family home keeps a roof over their head they may not have concerns over whose name is on the deed. However, how property is owned and when it is acquired can have an impact on its ownership and how it will be treated if a couple decides to go through a divorce.

Different structures may serve different business needs

The decision to start a business is a big one and can have drastic legal and financial implications on the rest of a person's life. That is because if a business is not set up correctly, any liability that the business incurs can directly impact the financial health of the individual who was responsible for the start-up. For this reason, it can benefit Louisiana residents to get the help of business law attorneys when they are preparing to select the appropriate business structures for their new entities.

Child custody is an important family law topic

A divorce will have a big impact on any children from the relationship. Children may worry about how their lives will be affected as their parents untie the binds that hold their family together, and they may have concerns over whether divorce will mean that they need to move into a new home. Children may be afraid of the changes that they will need to live with in the "new normal" of their lives, and parents in Louisiana should be aware of what rights they have when it comes to helping their kids make transitions into their new post-divorce lives.
