Equitable Distribution

Divorce in South Carolina Means Dividing Up

Personal Assets Through Equitable Distribution

South Carolina’s marital property laws, like most states, follow equitable distribution of property. This means that the court will not necessarily divide real and personal property, acquired during the marriage, evenly between the parties involved. Rather, the court takes into account numerous factors when making decisions regarding equitable apportionment of marital property. The Family Court Judge hears the evidence from both spouses and then determines what he or she thinks is a fair and equitable division of marital property.

We have the expertise to fully advocate for you through this process.
