I am the executor of my husband’s will. I am having difficulty getting the land transferred into the legal heirs name. I need advice on how to get this resolved. I have talked to the Acadia Parish Tax Office to no avail.
If your husband had a will, it will need to be probated to have the land transferred. This can be done by way of a small succession affidavit, if his estate is valued at less than $125,000, or by filing a petition for probate with the court. An attorney experienced in successions law can give you...View More
I am almost 17. My mother and my father have joint custody but I was never able to see my dad, along with my sisters and stepmom because of my mom. My dad lives in missouri i live in louisiana. If my dad came and got me and took me in to live with him would I be forced to go back home?
You didn't say whether there's a judgment determining custody, but your statement that your parents have "joint custody" makes me assume that there is one. Your father would need to file a Rule to Modify Custody in the custody case asking the court to give him domiciliary...View More

I do not want to answer to them, and my attorney is not deposing them, and telling me to go to this deposition. It feels to me I'm bringing the bullets to the gun owner. .. It is a custody case with many twist .
If you were not subpoenaed to appear, then you cannot be punished for refusing to appear, assuming you are not a party to the lawsuit. You mention that your attorney is telling you to go, which makes me think you are a party, however. If that's the case and you fail to appear, then the...View More
Any credible evidence can be used to prove income. It's important, however, to make sure that the evidence you have is admissible under the Louisiana Rules of Evidence. You should consult with an attorney familiar with custody and child support cases to make sure you have what you need.
I was pulling out of my driveway and didnt see the car coming to my Left due to fog. I tied to gun it but they tried going into the left lane. We collided and totaled both vehicles. No one was injured. About 5 officers were on the scene but supposedly a trooper needed to be there as well. He wrote... View More

In Louisiana, a conservatorship is called an interdiction. When an interdiction is granted, the court appoints a curator (or curatrix if female) and an undercurator.

Woman passed away in Louisiana. She is divorced, gave her son up for adoption in Georgia, parents are deceased, and has two surviving siblings that are handling her cremation arrangements. Although she gave her son up for adoption, I'm told the adopted son still has rights and will have to... View More
A child that was surrendered for adoption still has the right to inherit from his/her parent in Louisiana, even though the parent's parental rights were terminated. I've never heard of a crematorium requiring that a child surrendered for adoption sign the paperwork, however.
Save your money friend. It's likely a scam, especially if you were contacted via email. Ask yourself why a distant relative would leave so much money to someone he/she hasn't met, and how they managed to find your email address.
My stepmom has never liked me and my older sister. We’re both over 18. My dad passed on December 1st of 2022. We didn’t find out about it until December 14th from a distant friend of the family. She never told us. We found out later from our two little sisters that still lived in the house that... View More

You really need to speak with a Louisiana attorney who handles custody matters. There's a lot of additional information the lawyer would need to know to answer the question, such as where the child was born and when the petition was filed.
