DIVORCE, FAMILY LAW, and MEDIATION:

Before you file for divorce, you should here are important tips:

(1)
Talk to an attorney early into the process.  Don't make assumptions that could cost you
later. You tell us how you want to handle your divorce and we advise you accordingly.

(2)
Know you spouse's income and other assets.  Courts can't make a decision based
on what you know about your spouse, only what you can prove about your spouse.

(3)
Secure any personal property that you want from the marital home before you
leave.
 You may never get it later.  

(4)
Try to think beyond the divorce process.  There is life after divorce, and you have to
live it long after the process is over.

(5)
Determine if the cost of fighting is worth the fight.  Life will be different after divorce,
no matter what the settlement.  

If you are already going through a
Divorce, Custody or Mediation, talk to an attorney before
making any final decisions.  Even if it is only a consultation, it is a lot cheaper than living with a
bad financial decision for the rest of your life.  The Court process can be time consuming and
difficult to understand. There are a lot of rules regarding what you can present in court or when
you can present evidence in court.  Mediation is a mandatory part of divorce for most counties
in South Carolina.  Making the wrong decisions can cost you for a long time.  While there are
never any absolutes in divorce court, a divorce lawyer can help you navigate through the
system to get the best possible results for you and your family.  

While divorce doesn't happen more than once for most people, the effects can last a lifetime.
During that time, you are concerned about paying your bills, taking care of your children, how
to divide your assets and debts, and how you will manage after the divorce.

  • Can't work due to a medical condition or physical injury, and

enough work credits to qualify for Social Security Disability (SSDI).  There are deadlines and
limitations for filing claims, so call today to speak to an experienced attorney to help you win
the benefits you deserve. There is no cost to you for the consultation, and we only get paid if
we win your case.
