Marital Separation

Marital Separation in South Carolina Can Be Tricky To Navigate

For an Experienced Family Law Attorney in Charleston, SC, Hire Chandler & Jennings

While South Carolina does not have “legal separation,” a Decree of Separate Support and Maintenance may be obtained in advance of a divorce. This Order, or Decree, does not cover the issue of divorce and does not end the parties’ marriage. For marital separation in South Carolina, it allows the parties to live separately and determines some of the issues that must be resolved, including alimony, transferring personal property, health insurance, allocation of debt, and child custody and support.
