Why Hire A South Carolina Divorce Attorney?

South Carolina maintains a specific set of laws that dictate how divorces are handled in the state. It is necessary to adhere to these laws; otherwise a spouse may face legal penalties that can impact the outcome of divorce. Title 20 of the South Carolina Code of Laws sets forth all the relevant legislation surrounding domestic relations, including grounds for divorce, residency requirements, and property ownership rights. For instance, in South Carolina, divorce may only be granted when one or more of the following grounds are met (South Carolina Code of Laws Section 20-3-10): 

  • Adultery
  • Desertion for a period of one year or more
  • Physical cruelty
  • Habitual drug or alcohol abuse
  • Separate cohabitation for a period of one year or more

If none of these criteria are met, obtaining a divorce in South Carolina is not possible. However, the experienced divorce attorneys at CHSA Law understand how to navigate these complex legal issues. Additionally, divorce proceedings are often emotionally overwhelming. For this reason, involving legal counsel can be beneficial. Divorce attorneys act as neutral and objective negotiators, alleviating the tension that often complicates divorce proceedings.

Divorce is an incredibly personal and sensitive issue, and the process of obtaining divorce involves great vulnerability. When hiring legal counsel to represent you in a divorce, you are placing a great deal of trust in them. Consequently, our divorce attorneys have centered our family law practice around a foundation of compassion and trust. We acknowledge the confidence and trust you are placing in us, and we honor that by upholding your needs, goals, and desires at every point of the process.
