Terms Used In Louisiana Revised Statutes 9:2802

  • Settlement: Parties to a lawsuit resolve their difference without having a trial. Settlements often involve the payment of compensation by one party in satisfaction of the other party's claims.

An action seeking partition of community property and settlement of claims arising from matrimonial regimes, when asserted as an incident of an action which would result in termination of the matrimonial regime, shall not be deemed premature solely for the reason that the matrimonial regime has not been terminated.  No judgment of partition shall be rendered unless rendered in conjunction with, or subsequent to, the judgment which has the effect of terminating the matrimonial regime.
