Divorce and Legal Separation
In South Carolina, family court hears all cases involving marriage and divorce. We provide legal guidance if you or your spouse is seeking a divorce or legal separation.
While child custody is determined as part finalizing a divorce, it is one area of a divorce that a family court judge can change. We represent parents involved in post-divorce child custody disputes.
South Carolina laws allow changes to child support agreements if there have been significant changes in circumstances since the court’s most recent order on support payments. We provide legal advice involving changes to the amount of child support payments or when no payments are being made.
Spousal Support and Alimony
Depending on the financial circumstances at the time of divorce, one spouse may be required to make support payments. The amount, length and type of payment that one may be ordered to pay varies based on a number of factors.
