Divorce

Charleston, South Carolina Divorce Attorneys

Unlike other states, South Carolina does not allow for immediate no-fault divorce, meaning that one or both of the parties must have sufficient grounds to file for divorce. Sufficient grounds include adultery, physical cruelty, desertion, habitual drunkenness, or one-year separation.

If you do not have grounds to file for divorce, Brinkley Law Firm, LLC can file an action for Separate Maintenance and Support which allows the court to address other aspects, such as alimony, child custody and support, and apportionment of marital bills. During the time between the temporary order and the actual grant of divorce, we will research your spouse’s financial assets and character. This may assist us in building a case in your favor regarding issues of child custody and support, alimony, and division of marital property.

For sound counsel during challenging times, contact Brinkley Law Firm  to discuss your questions about South Carolina divorce law with our Charleston divorce attorneys.
