How can we help?
Whether you need a divorce attorney in South Carolina for a high-conflict divorce, you desire to create a family, or have a question regarding child custody or alimony, our family law attorneys in South Carolina can help. Further, our multi-disciplinary approach means that we understand the interconnectedness of life’s events.
How much does divorce cost?
In South Carolina, the filing fee for an absolute divorce is $150.00. A lawsuit making a claim for an Absolute Divorce (and possible resuming a person’s maiden name) is based on the lawyer’s hourly rate unless otherwise advised by Sodoma Law.
How long will I have to pay child support?
In general, both parties have a duty to support their child until the child reaches the age of 18 or graduates from high school, whichever event occurs last. However, if the minor child is over 18 and continues to attend secondary school, parties are obligated to provide child support up to the age of 20.
Do I still have to pay alimony if I lose my job?
In South Carolina, if a party is either ordered to pay alimony or has agreed to pay alimony through a consent order, then a party may seek a modification of the existing obligation by filing a motion with the Court and showing that there has been a change in circumstances.
How do I know when I am legally separated?
When you no longer live under the same roof as your spouse, you are separated. “Legally” separated typically means you have an agreement evidencing your separation, or a Court has ruled that you are “legally” separated. However, you can be separated without a document in place. If you have been separated for more than one year, regardless of whether your separation is “legal,” you may be entitled to a divorce judgment.
How can I keep my fees to a minimum?
Sodoma Law, P.C. offers many suggestions to clients as to how to keep attorney fees low. Among other things, we ask that our clients come as prepared as possible to meetings so that each meeting is productive and effective. We ask our clients to assist us in keeping their files organized so as to lower administrative costs related to hearing and/or settlement preparations. We often work with clients to prepare “to do” lists so as to further reduce their legal fees.
What happens if I die without a will?
If you don’t have an estate plan, the legislature has a default plan for you. The default statutory rules are rarely what anyone would choose and can create unfair results and discord among your family.
