What you need to know about Louisiana DUI laws

Whether you live full-time in Louisiana or, like many thousands of people throughout the nation, enter the state on an annual visit for Mardi Gras, if you plan on imbibing alcohol, you'll want to be aware of all the laws and regulations that pertain to such matters. For instance, you must be age 21 or over to legally consume alcohol in this state. However, in certain circumstances, you may drink alcohol at a younger age without legal implication.  

Rise in divorce among older people could mean financial problems

With divorce on the rise for people over 50, older couples in Louisiana might be more likely to split up than their parents or grandparents were. However, a survey by UBS Global Wealth Management found that many couples still fall into traditional patterns of money management. The study surveyed 1,500 couples and 600 women who had been widowed or divorced in the last five years. It found that 56 percent of women left major financial decision and investments in their husband's hands. More millennial women, at 61 percent, reported this arrangement than baby boomer women at 54 percent.

Three tests that can impact your future

If a Louisiana police officer asks you to step out of your vehicle, chances are he or she suspects you of drunk driving. The moment you pulled over, the officer detained you and you are no longer free to leave the scene unless the officer grants permission. Once you step out of your car, you may have a lot at stake, including perhaps, your freedom. Police often use three tests to determine probable cause to make DWI arrests. These are known as field sobriety tests.
