Ellen Cronin Badeaux's answer Impossible to tel which came first the divorce or the succession. If not divorced at time of death, then still married and there is no divorce. You need a succession attorney
Ellen Cronin Badeaux's answer You need a divorce attorney to file for both custody and divorce. Louisiana only has ex parte custody in emergency situations (substance abuse, neglect, physical abuse, etc) because parents have equal rights.
Ellen Cronin Badeaux's answer You can't leave your pets in someone else's home if they don't want them there. You need to come home immediately and take the 6 felines to the Humane Society since you currently can't care for them. By law you can only have 5 cats in a home. Cats need to be neutered and given shots annually.
Ellen Cronin Badeaux's answer Yes someone can take them to the Humane Society for neglect. Cats need fresh water and food DAILY not weekly. They also need their litter cleaned/changed weekly and shots annually.
Ellen Cronin Badeaux's answer They can go back 10 years on child support. If she/and the state didn't waive arrears, then you are still on the hook. You and your wife need a post-nuptial agreement to protect your wife from your ex seizing her tax refunds.
