When a parent dies, the estate administration process can be a difficult thing to get through. It can be even more challenging if a stepmother is involved. Far too often, in Louisiana and elsewhere, stepmothers are accused of keeping their husband's assets for themselves and then passing them on to their own children rather than giving them to their stepchildren. When this happens, probate litigation may be the only way the offended parties may see any part of their supposed inheritance.
Divorce is a challenge for you, you soon-to-be ex-spouse and any children you share together.

Thankfully, an experienced family law attorney can help one achieve a fair and balanced settlement despite his or her spouse's actions resulting from this mental condition.
