What is Family Law?

Family law is a broad term commonly used to describe the area of law related to separation, divorce, child custody, child visitation, child support, alimony, property division, adoption, name change, pre-nuptial agreements, post-nuptial agreements, protective orders, and child abuse.

South Carolina enacted a law in 1976 which established a uniform statewide Family Court system. Every county in the state has a Family Court, and that court resolves all disputes related to domestic and/or family relationships. By law, the Family Court is responsible for all cases involving marriage, divorce, legal separation, custody, visitation rights, termination of parental rights, adoption, support, alimony, division of marital property, and change of name.

When faced with a family law issue, it is important to hire a lawyer knowledgeable in the practices, rules, and procedures of the Family Court system. I am that lawyer, having years of experience in handling these types of cases in Family Courts throughout South Carolina.
