Divorce is one of the hardest things a person can go through in life. It’s a huge decision and can be made even more difficult if your spouse is the one who is seeking a divorce. Talley Law Firm’s divorce lawyers have the experience to guide you through Divorce Litigation.
Here are some things to consider:
- Property division
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support (and expenses not covered by insurance)
Our divorce lawyers address many complicated issues such as separation, divorce and mediation, alimony and spousal support, division of property, assets and debt, child custody, child support, modification of prior child support orders, visitation rights, termination of parental rights, adoptions (both private and through the Department of Social Services), guardian ad litem situations, paternity issues, and name change actions.
The state of South Carolina recognizes no-fault divorce.
You and your spouse must have been separated for more than one year to obtain a no-fault divorce in South Carolina. However, during the separation, our attorneys can start an action for a Decree of Separate Maintenance to ensure household obligations are met.
The state also allows for a fault-based divorce, which is based on one party’s actions, should those actions lead to the breakdown of the marriage.
You’ll certainly want your divorce to be as civil as possible. But remember… It’s still a divorce. If your spouse tells you to trust him/her, do yourself a favor and be sure you have excellent legal counsel.
Talley Law Firm includes attorneys who focus on divorce. They’ll walk you through every option, answer any questions, represent you well, and truly care that you get the best service and outcome possible.
In a Divorce, protecting yourself and your family is the top priority.
Divorce can be very hard on children. While you may have a contentious relationship with your soon-to-be ex, you want your children to weather your divorce with as little upheaval as possible.
Talley Law Firm respects the situation your children are in and works hard to minimize their trauma. If your children are young, you will probably be seeing your ex frequently. During the divorce process, we work to keep things civil so that afterward, maintaining a civil relationship with your ex may be possible.
