Louisiana Does have legal separation in the sense that you can request a court give you and your children exclusive occupancy of your house, evicting your spouse. This is a great remedy to use if you recently are having problems together and you would like to live separate while you decide whether you want to get a divorce.
Louisiana Does Not have legal separation that ends your marital duties (fidelity, assistance, etc.) to your spouse.
