PRACTICE AREAS

Divorce

There are five grounds for divorce in South Carolina: one no-fault ground and four fault grounds, which are adultery, physical cruelty, habitual drunkenness and desertion.

Separation

If you don’t have grounds for divorce, but don’t want to remain in your marriage, you can file for a separate support and maintenance case that allows you to seek custody of children

Child Custody

Divorce cases can also include other issues arising out of the marriage such as custody of children, child support, visitation, division of marital assets and debts, and alimony.

Paternity

You can ask for an Order of Protection in Family Court when you need a restraining order quickly and don’t yet have a lawyer.
