Helping With Every Step of Your Divorce
One of the most common types of family law cases we handle is divorce. If you believe that your marriage might be ending, you want to have an experienced and trusted divorce lawyer on your side who can help you with every aspect of your case. Some divorces can be relatively straightforward, though there are still several issues you need to address. It is still important to consult with an attorney even if you have an uncontested divorce.
If certain issues in your divorce are contested, it is even more critical to have the right attorney. Our legal team regularly assists with contested divorces, and we work to resolve issues as efficiently as possible. There are different ways to resolve contested issues, including:
- Negotiation – We are skilled negotiators who can work to reach a favorable settlement agreement with your spouse’s attorney.
- Mediation – Many couples benefit from mediation sessions, during which a third-party mediator helps facilitate compromise. You want to have a lawyer representing and advising you during this process.
- Litigation – If you are unable to reach an out-of-court agreement, you will need to let the judge decide how the matter will be resolved. You want an experienced litigator presenting persuasive arguments in your favor.
We handle complex divorces involving high assets, business interests, child custody battles, and much more. You want our divorce lawyers on your side.
Handling Other Family Law Cases
Our experienced South Carolina family law attorneys are qualified to handle any family law matter. We regularly work with clients with issues related to:
- Adoption – Whether you are seeking to adopt a child or are considering giving your child up for adoption, it’s important to protect your legal rights and avoid various potential pitfalls by retaining an attorney.
- Child custody – Disputes related to child custody can be extremely contentious, whether they occur in the context of a divorce or otherwise. Our lawyers are committed to protecting parents’ rights and resolving child custody disputes as favorably as possible.
- Child support – While child support is set according to a formula, judges have significant discretion to set amounts. We work with both custodial and non-custodial parents to ensure that their child custody arrangement is fair and appropriate.
- Enforcement of court orders – In some cases, it is necessary to take additional action to ensure that court orders are followed. Our team knows how to use the legal system to compel compliance.
- Modification of court orders – When circumstances change, it may justify the modification of an existing court order, including orders related to child support, child custody, and spousal support. Modifying a court order can be difficult, however, so it’s critical to work with a lawyer if you are trying to do so.
- Grandparents’ rights – In some cases, grandparents may be able to assert rights in regard to their grandchildren. Our team can determine whether you have a case and help you assert your rights in court.
- Mediation – Mediation is an alternative to litigation that can save divorcing couples time, money, and stress. It is still important to protect your rights, however, and our lawyers regularly work with people who are going through a divorce and pursuing mediation.
- Property and debt – All divorcing couples must divide their marital property, assets, and debts in an equitable manner, which can be complicated.
- Restraining orders – If you are the victim of domestic violence, our attorneys can help you obtain the protective orders you need to prevent future abuse.
- Separation agreements – If you are getting separated but not yet planning to file for divorce, you can benefit from having a separation agreement in place.
- Spousal support – If there is an earning discrepancy between ex-spouses, one might qualify for spousal support payments until they can find gainful employment.
