Does South Carolina divorce law require a reconciliation attempt?

Divorce is an unfortunate reality for many South Carolina couples. When the decision is made to part ways and end a marriage, the state wants to ensure that the choice is final and there is no prospect of salvaging the marriage. To do that, there are laws in place that necessitate couples attempt to reconcile before they can move forward with a divorce. Although that is frequently unsuccessful, there are cases where the parties decide to give it another try. Understanding how this impacts a divorce for civilian couples and those with a spouse in the military who is deployed is integral to a case.

De facto custodians, child custody and visitation rights

In South Carolina, child custody and visitation rights are not always a matter of dispute between parents. Often, others have a relationship with a child and want to at least see the child or have outright custody. These situations can be complicated and difficult to navigate. One that comes up frequently is if there is a de facto custodian. Understanding how the law views a de facto custodian is essential for the parents and anyone else involved in the child's life.

Key points to South Carolina child custody and visitation rights

Child custody is one of the most difficult issues in any South Carolina divorce. This is true personally and emotionally. Often, both parties will want to have custody of a child and the state has laws in place that are designed to consider child custody and visitation rights for the parents as well as what is in the child's best interests. As the process begins, the parents should be cognizant of the law and act accordingly while simultaneously factoring in how every decision might impact the child. Having legal advice is a critical factor in these cases.
