For spousal support / alimony, Louisiana law decrees that both parties will continue to live in circumstances as close as possible to those they enjoyed before divorce for a specified period of time. Although there is no framework for calculating spousal support, like child support awards, the settlement is income based.


Whether you are negotiating child and spousal support as part of a separate maintenance agreement, seeking equity during a divorce, or working to prevent the sale of assets from being improperly classified as income, Stephen Rue's 28 years of experience will prove indispensable.
