Child custody and visitation rights and court considerations

It is unfortunate when a South Carolina marriage ends in divorce. However, it is not uncommon as people who might have made a mistake when they married, grew apart or had other issues that necessitate the end of the marriage move on. If there are children, it adds a significant layer of concerns to the process. The child will take precedence and, in a best-case scenario, the parents will understand that and take it into account as child custody and visitation rights are determined. Understanding what factors the court will consider when making sure the child is safe and adequately cared for is a vital part of the process.

Family law disputes might be negotiated through mediation

South Carolina couples who have a marriage dissolution dispute have, the natural inclination to go straight to court and have the matter settled that way. It is, of course, their option to do so, and, in some cases, there is no alternative. In contentious cases where the parties have dug in with little maneuverability, negotiation is not even on the table. However, for many couples, the situation has not reached that point. Sometimes the parties are even on cordial or even amicable terms. In such a case, mediation might be a preferable way to end the marriage and move on.
