The specific circumstances of a divorcing individual can be very impactful. They can significantly impact what kinds of issues the divorce will give rise to and, in some instances, can even impact what set of rules the divorce will be subject to. Individuals with questions regarding what impacts their specific circumstances will have on the divorce process for them should speak to a divorce attorney.
Sometime, state legislatures will consider adding a special set of divorce rules for a certain type of circumstance. Currently, Louisiana's legislature is considering a bill which would make physical or sexual domestic abuse grounds for divorce in the state and would create a special set of divorce rules for divorces involving domestic violence.
