Searching for a Divorce Attorney in Charleston, SC?
Hire Chandler & Jennings
Divorce is a stressful time. A divorce attorney can help you understand the process. In South Carolina, divorce is granted on one of two grounds: fault ground or no-fault ground. Fault grounds include adultery, desertion, physical cruelty, habitual drunkenness or abuse of narcotics. The no-fault ground is based upon one-year continuous separation. Our firm will determine the appropriate ground for divorce and then work to develop the evidence, required by law, to establish that the client is entitled to a divorce on that basis.
A Divorce Attorney Can Work Through It With You
Our team also has the knowledge to apply other South Carolina requirements regarding specific residency rules and mandatory waiting periods. For instance, there is a mandatory three month waiting period between the date the divorce is filed and the date that the court can issue the final divorce decree. The lawyers at Chandler and Jennings boast years of experience helping those going through separation. We know what to expect in a divorce. Let our attorneys assist you through this. You’re not alone.
