Louisiana Public Records

Traditionally considered to be part of the deep south, Louisiana was admitted to the Union on April 30, 1812 as the 18th state. Measuring approximately 51,843 square miles in total area, 15% of this space is water. The state's dimensions are roughly 130 miles in width by 379 miles in length. The capital of Louisiana is Baton Rouge, while the largest city is New Orleans. The dominant ancestry of Louisiana's population are the Cajuns and Creoles, both of French origin. Long, hot, humid summers are characteristic of Louisiana, along with short, mild winters. The climate is largely due to influences from its proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, and rain is typical throughout the year. The state is also prone to tropical cyclones and hurricanes, particularly around the New Orleans area; Hurricane Katrina (2005) is one of the most infamous to occur in recent history. In addition to its notoriety for destructive hurricanes, the state of Louisiana is also known for its Creole and Cajun heritages, and of course for the world famous celebration of Mardi Gras. Tourism and culture go hand and hand in Louisiana, generating billions of dollars in revenue each year for the state.

How do we find out if papers have been filed to keep a mother from picking up her daughter from the father. The mother has papers for shared custody determined by an arbitrator a couple of years ago. Father is threatening to have her arrested if she goes to pick up the child. Mother has not been served. Help please. The grandmother!

Property at 32350 Tuck Ln. In Denham Springs, we are interested in buying. I would like to know if there any Liens? What is the actual Price they are looking to sell for? Not a bogus asking price... What do other mobile homes on Tuck Ln. Average inprice? Has it ever flooded? Any info is greatly appreciated. List price is $50k. Most sites like trulia and zillow list as the price. And NOT short sale. But when i spoke to listing agent she said it was a short sale and should offer more than asking price. Just want to know the true status so not to be deceived. We are willing to pay close to asking price if that is genuine. Thanks for reply as soon as possible. Going to see next weekend. Dont forget any liens, and how much is owed on it? Regards, Ann
