Louisiana Family Laws
Louisiana is a wonderful place to start a family, and this section can provide information and resources on a wide range of family law topics like adoption and the requirements for marriage. (Sorry you love-struck kids-you need to be 18 to get married, or 16 if you have your parents’ permission.) In the unfortunate event that your Bayou State romance doesn’t work out, the links below also provide state-specific resources for divorce, including what happens to marital property, and the policies and procedures regarding child custody and child support.
