A: Take photos to document her injuries and get the names and contact information for as many of the witnesses as you can. Then contact a personal injury attorney.
Q. My soon to be ex-husband of 23 years is the listed owner of our home in Louisiana. He has not worked 15 yrs of 23 yr
A: If the home was purchased during the marriage, if would be considered community property and you'd be entitled to 50% of the equity in the home. If he purchased it before the marriage, you may be entitled to reimbursement for your half of the community payments used towards the notes on the house. A good divorce/family law attorney can help you with this.

If the abuse is serious, you or your family should consider reporting it to the authorities. Good luck.
