Community Property Partitions Lawyers Lake Charles

Louisiana is a community property estate wherein couples own community property. The assets, debts or obligations that are acquired during a marriage are called community property. This means that the property belongs to the couple in common. If the parties divorce, this community property is fairly divided among the two based on certain key considerations. Community Property Partitions lawyers at The Johnson Firm help divorcing couples identify hiccups in community property cases and prepare a plan of action accordingly.

Experienced Community Property Partitions

The key aspects of community property partitions are:

  • The net worth of assets and debts
  • The market value of property owned by the couple, if applicable

This cumulative value is divided by mortgages, retirement plans, and other financial commitments the couple may have. The value obtained after these deductions is considered for the community property partition.

Our team of expert community property partition lawyers establishes key facts based on these financial details and represents clients for a favorable outcome.
