What You Need to Know If Facing Divorce

Divorce occurs in more than 50 percent of today’s marriages, creating a divide in families and relationships that can often be difficult to resolve. Divorce can be a life-changing decision and it is important that you have an experienced divorce attorney on your side to protect your rights during this difficult time while giving guidance and honest advice. Attorney Katherine Ferguson strives to keep the divorce process as amicable as possible and understands that each case is unique.

In South Carolina, divorces are granted on either fault or no-fault grounds. Grounds for an at-fault divorce include adultery, physical abuse, habitual alcohol abuse, desertion, or drug abuse. No-fault divorces are granted when parties continuously live separate and apart without co-habitation for at least a year. When handling divorce cases, there are also a number of factors to consider, including:

  • Alimony/Spousal Support
  • Pre-nuptial Agreements, Post-nuptial Agreements, and Reunification Agreements
  • Child Support
  • Child Custody
  • Visitation Rights
  • Modification of Existing Custody Order(s)
  • Equitable Distribution (i.e. property division)
  • Attorney’s Fees
