Key Issues in a Divorce

These issues are all sensitive matters for most families, which is why it is crucial to hire an attorney to help guide you through the process. We will take care of the legal side of things while you focus on coping and adjusting with the coming changes.
When Can I File for Divorce?
If both you and your spouse have lived in South Carolina for over three months, you can file for a divorce. However, if you are filing for a no-fault divorce, you and your spouse must have lived separately without cohabitation for more than a year. If you file for a fault-based divorce, such as desertion or adultery, you can file for a divorce at any time. If your spouse is living out of state, you must be a South Carolina resident for over a year. If you are unsure if you meet some of these requirements, contact Moore Taylor Law Firm, P.A. to discuss the details of your case. Remember, no two divorces are alike, so the best way to ensure you are making the right decisions for your circumstances is to discuss your case with an experienced divorce attorney.
If your spouse does not agree to the divorce, he or she cannot prevent you from obtaining one. Assuming you meet one of the state’s statutory grounds for divorce, you can move forward with your decision regardless if your spouse agrees to it or not. However, the key issues mentioned above must be resolved before finalizing the process.
