In addition to Child Custody and Divorce matters, Katherine L. Hurst, Attorney at law, is experienced in representing clients in all Family Law matters including:
Pre-Nuptial Agreements / Matrimonial Agreements
Louisiana is a community property state. Alternatively, couples entering into marriage can choose to enter into a Matrimonial Agreement altering or rejecting community property.
The most common form of a “pre-nup” in Louisiana is one that rejects community property and keeps a separation of property arrangement, meaning each member of the couple keeps what they earn or acquire during the marriage.
Pre-Nups Aren’t Just for the Wealthy
Because of Louisiana’s community property laws, it may be advisable to consider a Matrimonial Agreement especially in cases of re-marriage. For example, child support for children of prior relationships is considered a debt of the community and a spouse could be liable to pay those debts. Katherine Hurst is experienced in the drafting of Matrimonial Agreements/Pre-Nuptial Agreements.
