At the beginning of any separation process, it is important to gather information before you take action. Divorce has far-reaching consequences, and South Carolina Family Law may be hard to understand if you are not a lawyer. We ask that you not take legal advice from non-lawyers or listen to your friends’ experiences. This is not in your best interest. EGJ Family law urges you to contact us to learn the law, consider your legal options and begin planning for your separation and divorce.
What is it like to go through a divorce?
Our efforts to resolve your case are based on your family, your financial goals and your values. We listen to you as you discuss your marriage, children, and goals for your life. Some common priorities from our clients include
- Protecting the emotional well-being of children, both now and for the longer-term.
- Emerging from the divorce with the best possible property settlement.
- Ensuring any child support and alimony/spousal support orders are fair.
- Resolving the case as an uncontested divorce—as quickly and affordably as possible.
We can help you weigh the pros and cons of pursuing a “fault” based action if your spouse’s conduct has given you grounds for divorce. We will help you evaluate whether developing a separation agreement is right for you. Among our strengths is a strong track record of resolving difficult issues through mediation.
