In Louisiana, Can a Spouse Give Up His or Her Right to Alimony in a Premarital Agreement?

Yes, Louisiana law allows spouses to include modification or elimination of spousal support in their prenuptial agreement. While a court may award temporary spousal support in a divorce case, typically the court will follow the agreement reached in the prenuptial agreement with regard to spousal support so long as the agreement was fair and the parties entered into it of their own free will.
