With nearly three decades of experience, I provide thoughtful, thorough and proficient counsel.
Diligent representation and effective advocacy for your divorce
South Carolina recognizes four fault grounds for divorce, including adultery, physical cruelty, habitual drunkenness and desertion. Divorce can also be based on no-fault grounds if the couple has lived separate and apart for a year or more. I help clients with the following types of proceedings:
- Uncontested divorce — This is a no-fault divorce in which there is no dispute over child custody and support, alimony or property division. An uncontested divorce can reduce stress, the amount of time spent in litigation and the associated costs. I guide clients through the uncontested divorce process and draft or review any necessary documents and agreements.
- Contested divorce — When spouses can't agree on one or more of the issues that must be resolved in order to obtain a divorce, it is considered a contested matter. As both a skilled negotiator and an aggressive litigator, I have a deep understanding of how to strategize in contested divorce cases to reach positive resolutions.
- Property distribution and alimony — I work closely with my clients to ensure fair outcomes concerning alimony and the equitable distribution of marital property, which involves the splitting of assets fairly but not necessarily equally.
Deciding to end your marriage is not easy — not only does divorce take an emotional toll, but it can also have significant financial effects on your family. I listen to my clients' concerns and work with them to create a plan that will accomplish their goals, ease their stress and lessen the economic impact of the litigation.
Caring and competent child custody and visitation attorney
When you and your spouse are divorcing, your children's best interests should be your top priority. I provide personalized attention and will work with you to create or modify a custody and visitation agreement that will meet your family's needs. I represent clients for all issues pertaining to child custody, from drafting agreements, to enforcing and modifying orders and litigating custody and visitation disputes.
