DIVORCE, CUSTODY, and MEDIATION:

Before you file for divorce, you should here are important tips:

(1)
Talk to an attorney early into the process.  Don't make assumptions that
could cost you later. You tell us how you want to handle your divorce and we
advise you accordingly.

(2)
Know you spouse's income and other assets.  Courts can't make a decision
based on what you know about your spouse, only what you can prove about your
spouse.

(3)
Secure any personal property that you want from the marital home before
you leave.
 You may never get it later.  

(4)
Try to think beyond the divorce process.  There is life after divorce, and you
have to live it long after the process is over.

(5)
Determine if the cost of fighting is worth the fight.  Life will be different
after divorce, no matter what the settlement.  

If you are already going through a
Divorce, Custody or Mediation, talk to an
attorney before making any final decisions.  Even if it is only a consultation, it is a
lot cheaper than living with a bad financial decision for the rest of your life.  The
Court process can be time consuming and difficult to understand. There are a lot of
rules regarding what you can present in court or when you can present evidence in
court.  Mediation is a mandatory part of divorce for most counties in South
Carolina.  Making the wrong decisions can cost you for a long time.  While there
are never any absolutes in divorce court, a divorce lawyer can help you navigate
through the system to get the best possible results for you and your family.  

While divorce doesn't happen more than once for most people, the effects can last a
lifetime. During that time, you are concerned about paying your bills, taking care of
your children, how to divide your assets and debts, and how you will manage after
the divorce.
