In Louisiana can a non debtor wife's bank account held solely in her name be garnished for the husband's debts if the debts were made before the marriage?
Answer . \nNo.\n. \nDebts made before marriage do not carry over into the marriage and become the responsibility of a new spouse, this includes community property states.\n. \nHowever, the creditor can request the court to "freeze" the account of the non debtor spouse to determine if the accou…nt holds any funds that actually belong to the debtor spouse.\n. \nAll Social Security benefits, RRB, government pensions, all disability benefits, most private pensions, public assistance and child support (not spousal maintenance) are exempt from a judgment creditor.

The Lousiana Purchase (1803) was made because Napoleon was in desperate need of money to help fuel the war that was occurring with mainly Britain, but also the other European nations, as he was attempting to build his Empire. Because he also did not want to focus on the colonies and place all of his… attention on the situation that was occurring in Europe. He offered to sell it quickly for $15 million dollars. He also saw the chance to impede the British colonial efforts by selling to their rival, the fledgling US. President Thomas Jefferson was trying to negotiate the purchase of the port of New Orleans, to ensure that US commerce on the Mississippi River would not be impeded. He was prepared to offer $10 million for the city, but Napoleon's representative offered the whole of French claims to La Louisiane , the entire western Mississippi Valley, for just $5 million more.

In recognition of their history as both a French and Spanish Colony where the Roman Catholic traditions of the Parish existed. So call it tradition. . Last answer. Improved: Most of the French colonizing Louisiana were Catholic, and when they were founding Louisiana they named the "counties" par…ishes instead, after the Catholic religion. If you attend a Catholic church, you may hear the priest refer to to "our parish." (MORE)

It is a state within the United States of America. The 18th state of the union, which resembles the shapes of a boot. It originally was purchased in 1803 from France as part of a large land acquisition called the Louisiana Purchase. The territory doubled the size of the United States and the study o…f the new land prompted the Journey of Discovery by Lewis and Clark in 1804-06. Today, the Southern state's French culture is still evident -- from its legal system to blend of food that incorporates other cultures. It's largest city is New Orleans on the Gulf of Mexico. (MORE)

President Jefferson was reluctant to approve the Louisiana Purchasebecause he was not certain that it was legal. He was worried theconstitution did not allow the purchase.
The original intent was to buy the port of New Orleans and free access to the Mississippi .
Napoleon needed the cash to continue the war in Europe. . He lacked the troop strength to occupy and defend French interests in the New World. . The slave revolt in Haiti had already reduced his North American foothold. . Overseas colonies mandated a large Naval presence which he did not have ava…ilable and could not afford to raise and maintain. . American ownership was not in the best interest of the UK and anything that upset his British enemies gave him great pleasure. (MORE)

Not entirely. The Louisiana Purchase included a huge swath of land west of the Mississippi River -- the Louisiana Territory (French Le Louisiane ) was nearly as large as the existing United States, including all or part of 13 current US states. The intent of the Purchase was to acquire the port of… New Orleans. Napoleon, unable or unwilling to maintain control of New France, offered to sell the entirety of the remaining French claims in North America. (MORE)
the Louisiana purchase was when George Washington got a offer from napoleon the leader of France to sell Louisiana to the US for 15 million dollars and george washinton agreed to it because Louisiana was a good way for US to grow and their was a important trade center there at the time
One can only guess, but I think the US would have annexed this territory one way or another even without the purchase in 1803. After Napolean was defeated, the French were in no position to hold this land so far away-- they might have been forced to give it up, but it is unlikely the US would have l…et it be given to Britain for long. Most likely it would have been for sale later or US settlers would have moved into the territory, declared their independence from France or whoever the territory was ceded to, and petition for entry into the United States or maybe it would have fallen to the US as part of the settlement ending the War of 1812.

Sure! Lousiana borders Texas, Arkansas and Mississippi, so you can certainly access it from any of the contiguous U.S. states, as well as Mexico and Canada.
Who did we bought the Louisiana Territory from? The French under the dictatorship of Napoleon Bonaparte for 15 million dollars.
motto is "Union, Justice, and Confidence." they have also used the slogan 'Fall in love with Louisiana all over again'
Jefferson who favored a strict interpretation of the Constitution was concerned that he did not have the authority to add new territory to the US. Also there was the problem of finding the money. The US did not have the $15 million available so it had to be borrowed from European bankers, creating f…oreign entanglements. Some people no doubt objected that the land was not needed, that the price was too hign and that the US could get the land for free just by taking it later if they wanted it. (MORE)

The United States believed it was a good way to expand their young, but prosperous country. With the Louisiana Purchase the size of the US. almost doubled in size.
It is a matter of historical record that the US DID make the Louisiana Purchase.
Is it true that Jefferson never intended to purchase all of the territiory that resulted in the Louisiana Purchase but napoleon was in need of money and made a offer of all their land?
Very true. When Napoleon decided to sell, Jefferson was concerned that the US might lose access to New Orleans if the country that bought the land didn't want to let Americans use it to get to the Mississippi. He sent to diplomats to buy New Orleans and just New Orleans. In fact, he probably panicke…d when he found out he'd doubled the size of the country because there was nothing in the Constitution that directly governed adding new territory. (MORE)
