One of the most complex and delicate aspects of marriage and divorce is how property will be shared and divided. When you are married, you pool your possessions and resources together, including vehicles and real estate. If you get divorced, that joined life is ripped apart. You may fear losing items of sentimental value, financial resources you need to survive, vehicles you rely on, and the home you have come to cherish. You may worry that you and your children will have nowhere to go, and may worry about being saddled with debts you didn’t accrue.
No matter what stage of life you are in—whether you are drafting up your prenuptial agreement or you are already in the midst of divorce proceedings, it is imperative to have an experienced family law attorney on your side who understands your rights as pertain to property division.
In South Carolina, if you cannot figure out how to divide up your marital property during the course of a divorce, a judge will do it for you. The judge will focus on dividing the property equitably, not equally. The emphasis is on fairness.

- We can help you ensure fair and safe custody for your child.
- If you are forced to proceed to trial, we will represent you aggressively and fight for a fair and equitable resolution that protects your property rights and lets you move forward with your life.
