Division of assets in a South Carolina divorce might take a backseat to child custody and spousal support as the process moves forward, but that does not make it any less important. There are many factors that determine how property will be distributed once a couple decides to end its marriage. One consideration that must be assessed is what authority the court can use to reach equitable apportionment. Since it is important that there be a fair split in the division of assets, legal help is often a must in these cases.
South Carolina couples that seek to end a marriage will have many issues to deal with as part of the process. A priority will be children from the marriage. Support will have a prominent place in a case too. Once these issues have been factored in, property division and the division of assets will come to the forefront. This might not seem to be the most important aspect of the case especially when placed in the context of children, but failing to pay proper attention to how assets are divided is a mistake that many make and regret. When moving forward with a divorce, the division of assets should be a prominent consideration.
