What You Need to Know About Division Of Assets:
South Carolina law demands the equitable division of assets, property, and debts. Homes, vehicles, jewelry, investments, and money acquired during the marriage are all considered marital assets, which the courts attempt to divide evenly. However, you are not required to divide non-marital assets, which are property you own separately and were not obtained during the marriage. It is this division of assets that often leads people to rebuild their finances after a divorce.
While the court system does its best to provide equity, parity is not always achieved during the property division process. The divorce attorneys at Bannister, Wyatt & Stalvey LLC will work to ensure you receive your fair share of both marital and non-marital assets.
At a time when you need someone on your side, the divorce attorneys at Bannister, Wyatt & Stalvey will be there for you. You do not need to face this process alone. Call us today at 864.523.7738 or contact us online.

Q: Am I required to pay child support if I don’t have any contact or visitation with my child or children?
A: Yes, all parents are required to pay child support regardless of how often you contact or visit your child or children. The only instance where this may not be necessary is if your parental rights have been terminated.
Q: Can the Department of Social Services (DSS) force me to submit to a drug test?
A: No, DSS does not have the right to force you to submit to a drug test; however, by refusing the test, it does give them reason to suspect drug use in the home and they may seek removal of any children.
