What Is Family Law Court?

The South Carolina legislature created family law courts to handle all court cases that involve domestic or family relationships. There is a family law court in each of South Carolina’s counties.

Your family law judge will make decisions and enter orders on the following types of cases:

– All aspects of divorce, including alimony, attorney’s fees, child custody, child support, child visitation, division of marital property and debts, and legal separation.

– Adoption, paternity, change of name, and termination of parental rights.
– Annulment of a marriage.
– Protection orders and collection of child support.
– Grandparent rights.

If you are involved in a South Carolina divorce or you are considering whether to file for a legal separation, you should consult with a Mt. Pleasant family law attorney. You need a family law attorney, who can advise you on the fine points of child custody, child support, alimony, and division of your retirement plans, bank accounts, investments, house, and other marital assets. Likewise, if you need a child visitation order, want to change your name, seek a protective order, or wish to adopt a child, you should seek the assistance of a Mount Pleasant family law lawyer.

The Charleston County family law court is located in downtown Charleston at 100 Broad Street. All Charleston, Isle of Palms, James Island, Johns Island, Mount Pleasant, North Charleston, Sullivan’s Island, and West Ashley family law cases are decided there.

If you live in Daniel Island, Goose Creek, or elsewhere in Berkeley County, your family law court is located in Moncks Corner. You will find the Berkeley County family law court at 300 California in Moncks Corner.

If you live in Summerville or another place in Dorchester County, your family law case will be decided in Summerville. The Dorchester County family law court is located at 212 Deming Way, slightly north of downtown Summerville.
