South Carolina couples who are considering divorce are oftentimes immersed in the emotional, financial, and personal concerns that are some of the hallmarks of marriage dissolution. They might not think about the various state laws that regulate the process and the necessary legal factors that must be considered. Recently, another issue has come into focus, as there is legislation that, if passed, will result in an expansion of the legal justifications the courts will accept for a divorce.
For South Carolina couples who are preparing for marriage, a premarital agreement is often part of the process. This is not done with the expectation that the marriage will fail and the couple will divorce, but is so one or both parties are protected from losing various assets and properties. There are circumstances when there is a premarital agreement, but that agreement is unenforceable because a legal violation took place. With these complicated legal circumstances, it is imperative to have a qualified lawyer assess the case.
In South Carolina and across the nation, divorce and the issues that precede it are often the same regardless of a person's age and financial situation. People will have different concerns as they end a marriage and move forward with a new life. When it is a so-called "grey divorce," older people will have considerations that will not be an issue for younger people, but are critical for them. Having legal assistance from a firm that understands these issues is imperative from the beginning.
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.
