What You Need To Know About Divorce Law:

South Carolina family law grants either Fault or No Fault divorces. Grounds for a Fault divorce must include adultery, physical abuse, or habitual alcohol or drug use, which directly impacted the success of a marriage, and desertion for at least one year. A No Fault divorce is granted if the parties continuously lived separately without cohabitation for at least one year.

During divorce proceedings, marital issues – including custody of children, child support, visitation, spousal support, marital asset and debt division – must be handled. Very rarely can a divorce case be approved without coming to agreements on these issues. It is also important to note that once a Final Order for Divorce is signed and filed, all aspects of marital dissolution are final and cannot be changed.

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.

Q: I have court hearing requesting that I pay child support. What should I do?

When possible, we recommend contacting an experienced family law attorney to help you navigate family court and ensure the best outcome for you and your children.
