Legislative Update: Louisiana Lengthens Waiting Period for Divorce

Louisiana's governor has signed into law an act which doubles the living-separate-and-apart waiting period for divorce from six months to one year when minor children would be affected by a no-fault divorce. If it is demonstrated that one spouse is guilty of child or spousal abuse, the current waiting period remains unaffected.
