LA Laws on Community Property & Covenant Marriage
Louisiana law, LA-R.S. 9:237, has empowered the attorney general to prepare, for the local officers who issue marriage licenses, a summary of the community property laws and the covenant marriage laws of this state, with the mandate to these local officers to deliver this summary to each prospective spouse when they receive their license to marry.
 
Please see More Resources for the complete booklet regarding community property and covenant marriage.  The condensed version of the booklet can also be found under More Resources.


Coming soon, the attorney's general office seeks to provide a mechanism by which to take online payments for collections.
