Protecting Your Interests In Divorce

Most Louisiana divorces are no-fault divorces, meaning that couples file for divorce without seeking a fault ground such as adultery or cruelty. To file for a no-fault divorce in Louisiana, all you have to do is live separately and apart for a required amount of time. Unfortunately, "no fault" does not always mean no complications.

At the law firm of Wayne Bush, Attorney at Law, we handle both military and civilian divorce for men and women in Leesville, Fort Polk and other communities in Vernon Parish. Call 337-378-0610 to discuss your case with a lawyer.

Helping You Resolve The Issues In Your Divorce

Many people focus on property issues in divorce, such as how to divide community property, known as partitions. However, unless you have significant community property, hiring a lawyer to divide your assets can be a costly distraction from the more important issues. You could end up spending more money on legal fees than the property is worth.

We encourage you and your spouse to come up with a fair split of property. We will focus on the important issues, such as:

  • Division of retirement plans
  • Creating a parenting and time-sharing plan if you have children
  • Determining child support
  • Determining if one parent has to pay spousal maintenance or alimony to the other

Military divorces can be especially complex, as the nonmilitary spouse may be entitled to military retirement and medical benefits, as well as financial support. Before the divorce case is even resolved, the military may send the service member to the barracks and allow the spouse and kids to stay in the house. To protect their financial interests, service members should seek legal advice as soon as possible.
