Voted Best Charleston Divorce Law Firm
“What will my life look like after I finish my divorce?”
As a James Island, SC divorce lawyer, this is the question that I am asked the most.
Perhaps, you are asking the same question as you prepare for your divorce or legal separation. The stakes for you and your children may never be higher.
I have helped many people – just like you – answer that question in a very positive way.
In addition to that ultimate question, you may have many other questions about South Carolina divorce and legal separation law. Over my many years as a divorce lawyer, the most frequently asked divorce questions have included:
- What is the difference between a fault-based divorce and a no-fault divorce in South Carolina?
- How long will it take to complete my divorce?
- What will it cost for me to hire a divorce attorney to represent me?
- How will the family court judge divide our property and debts?
- Will I receive alimony after I am divorced?
- And many more . . .
I have written the articles on this website to provide you with general answers to those and many more James Island family law questions.

Answers to FAQ’s About A James Island Child Custody Case

- How will the family court judge decide my child custody case?
- What are the most common child custody myths?
- Will my child get to choose where she will live as part of my child custody case?
While these articles will provide you with a lot of basic information concerning your divorce, you should not stop there. The outcome in your divorce and child custody case will depend to a great extent on the skill and experience of the James Island divorce lawyer that you choose to represent you. You should hire the best family law attorney that you can afford – and you should not delay.
What Makes the Peck Law Firm Different?
You have lots of choices among the Charleston and James Island divorce lawyers. There is one quality that distinguishes the Peck Law Firm from most of the other firms that represent divorce and child custody clients.
We represent only clients with divorce, child custody, alimony, and other family law cases.
Unlike many other lawyers, we do not also represent clients with criminal, DUI, personal injury, or similar cases. Likewise, we do not also handle real estate closings, advise on tax law, or incorporate businesses. We only do family law cases.
Family law is our only business because we believe our clients deserve for us to devote all of our time and effort to do everything that we can to learn:
- the fine points of SC divorce, child custody, alimony, and other aspects of family law,
- the nuances of the various family court judges who decide divorce cases, and
- the strengths and weaknesses of other family law attorneys who handle divorce and child custody cases.
No James Island family law attorney can claim to know everything that there is to know about divorce or child custody law. However, we devote each day to learning everything that we can about South Carolina divorce law. By limiting our law practice to only divorce and family law, we avoid the distraction of also trying to learn criminal, personal injury, DUI, real estate, corporate, tax, bankruptcy, probate, and other types of law at the same time.
We only do family law and we do it to the best of our ability.
