Family Law Attorney – Summerville, SC
Handling Divorce, Child Custody, and Child Support Cases
You’ve found yourself in a difficult domestic situation.
Maybe you’re considering divorce, maybe children are involved, or maybe you need help with child support.
Whatever the case, your emotions are running high and there are many unknowns.
Divorce and custody cases are often filled with emotion. Sometimes our emotions cloud our best judgment. They cripple our decision making skills.
As a result, not only do we tend to make decisions which are not in our best interest, but they can be a difficult maybe even impossible to undo.
Here are a few examples of situations that can affect the outcome of your life:
- In South Carolina, adultery prevents a cheating spouse from getting alimony.
- Certain conduct can have an impact on custody and visitation even if the conduct occurs when the children are not around.
- Oftentimes when a relationship goes south, people do things that they ordinarily wouldn’t do. That conduct could affect almost every aspect of marital litigation.
- South Carolina has child support guidelines. Some people will agree to an arbitrary number. This can having lasting consequences for the payor or payee.
- Some people believe that if something is titled in their name, it’s not marital property. That may not be the case. There is law which determines what is marital property and what is not.
As you can see, everyone’s situation is different and every situation requires careful examination, understanding of the law and most importantly a clear head.
