South Carolina Divorce Law

Divorce-and-Family-LawIn South Carolina, divorces may be classified as fault or no-fault. If you don’t have fault-based grounds for divorce (such as physical abuse, drug or alcohol abuse, or adultery), you may file a no-fault divorce if you’ve lived separately for a year or more.

According to South Carolina law, property is divided equitably by the courts between the two spouses. There are many factors that influence this division, including income, the ability to earn an income, and the value of the property. Additionally, there are several different types of alimony that may be awarded to a spouse. We can help you determine the best outcome for you and your family and will fight to make sure you are provided for.
