Can I Get A Legal Separation?

Can I get a legal separation?

Unless you contracted a covenant marraige, the state of Louisiana does not recognize “legal separation.”  The legislature repealed the laws dealing with legal separation.  Couples who have a covenant marriage can obtain a judicial separation; this means they have a legal contract drafted, saying that they agree to resolve a division of property, debts, custody, and support when they separate from each other.
