Dividing Marital Property can be a Complicated Task
A divorce is a uniquely stressful undertaking. Aside from confronting the dissolution of your marriage, you must also look ahead to what your next chapter may be. As you seek to move forward, the assets you retain to help rebuild your life are important, and how you choose to protect them matters.

We understand how South Carolina state law views marital assets, and we can help you better position yourself for a favorable outcome.
What can You Expect to Receive?
The state of South Carolina adheres to equitable distribution laws as they pertain to marital property. That means all property acquired during the length of a marriage is eligible for division. Property that is acquired by a spouse prior to marriage or via inheritance is often shielded. This is also true for any property that is noted in a prenuptial agreement.
If the matter should go court, the following factors will be weighed in dividing your property:
- The duration of the marriage
- Whether the divorce is fault or no-fault type
- Each spouse’s contributions to the marriage
- Child custody issues
- The incomes of each spouse
Because of what is at stake, you can ill afford to face marital property division proceedings alone. By turning to the services of an effective attorney, you can strengthen your position and stand a better chance of getting what you deserve.
