If law enforcement arrests your child in Louisiana, this immediately becomes a criminal history linked to a record that may affect future college and job prospects.

Supreme Court overturns decision regarding disability in divorce

Often, couples in Louisiana make the decision to end their marriage after they have spent many years together. For military couples, it may be especially difficult for a spouse to be employed -- should he or she choose -- because of the need to move every few years, making it difficult to contribute to retirement savings. However, former spouses are likely entitled to a portion of retirement benefits from the other spouse under certain circumstances. The U.S. Supreme Court recently issued a ruling that settled a hotly contested issue regarding the division of military disability following a divorce when a former spouse was awarded a share of her husband's retirement pay.

As most drivers are aware, driving at night can be more difficult due to reduced visibility. In some cases, it may be more difficult for drivers to stop in time to avoid unexpected obstacles in the roadway, because they may be unable to see them in time to avoid a collision. Unfortunately, one man is accused of drunk driving in Louisiana following a recent crash involving an allegedly drunk man lying in the road.

Criminal defense: Louisiana college students accused of theft

Most people have likely seen footage recorded by surveillance cameras. In many circumstances, recordings lack clarity, making it difficult to identify people appearing on the footage. However, many people in Louisiana often find themselves creating a criminal defense based on identifications made on grainy, unclear surveillance footage. In fact, 13 University of Louisiana football players have been suspended following their arrest based on such footage.
