They never divorced correct - only separated?
Was anything ever filed - ie. divorce papers?
Yes, Louisiana no longer has an action for legal separation, effective Jan. 1,1991. However, if there was a Judgment of Separation that was secured prior to the 1991 law then it's still effective. Your going to have to go look up and see if there was a Judgment of Separation on the record books at the courthouse - and then go from there.
