Next to our children, property is the next most hotly debated area of family law. You have likely spent a great deal of time working toward your achievements and the thought of dividing these assets can seem unfair and frustrating. An experienced attorney can help you understand how property division works while advocating for the best outcome possible for you.
At The Sullivan Firm, LLC., our lawyer has more than 20 years of experience representing a vast array of individuals throughout South Carolina as they navigate the process of divorce. We are aware of the complexities involved in property division. We also appreciate that your divorce is unlike any other, and we are committed to giving you the personal attention and guidance you deserve.
Our state splits property according to equitable division. While this does not technically mean equal, the results are often close to even. There are 14 different factors that are taken into consideration when dividing property equitably, including age, health, income and more.
South Carolina is considered a no-fault divorce state. This means that either spouse can cite irreconcilable differences as their reasoning for the divorce. You and your spouse will be required to separate for one year before filing for a divorce. However, if there is evidence of adultery, physical cruelty or habitual use of drugs or alcohol, you may be eligible for a divorce in as little as 90 days.
We can help you navigate this process, regardless of your situation. We will give you the information you need to make educated decisions about your future.
