Myrtle Beach Family Law Attorney
Trent Chambers has been practicing family & divorce law for over 22 years. The personal nature of matters like adoption, divorce, child custody, and equitable distribution makes family law unique among legal practice areas. When the guidance of a family law attorney becomes necessary, it is important to select a personal, empathetic, experienced lawyer who truly represents clients.
Grounds for Divorce
South Carolina recognizes five grounds for divorce which include abandonment, one year separation, adultery, physical cruelty, and habitual intoxication. Please call our office to schedule an appointment to discuss any of these grounds and what evidence may be need to prove these grounds in court.
An uncontested divorce can be accomplished if both parties to the marriage have agreed to a settlement of all issues that includes division of marital property and debt, child custody, visitation, child support, alimony or spousal support. The agreement is reduced to writing and signed by both parties. A complaint is filed requesting that the Family Court approve the agreement and make it an Order of the Court. The process of creating a document that the Family Court will approve, filing the proper pleadings and proof of service with the court, attending the hearing and presenting the matter to the Court can be a difficult task for those that have never had experience with the Family Court. An uncontested divorce is by far the most economical and less stressful option for people that can reach an amicable resolution to the issues involved in the dissolution of marriage. At the Chambers Law Firm, we strive to draft agreements for our clients that have longevity and will not need to be amended or changed in the future. This concept is particularly important when dealing with child custody, child support, and visitation issues.
