Can a South Carolina Divorce Be Affordable? Yes, but Only if Spouses Want It to Be. 

At the David W. Martin Law Group, our South Carolina divorce attorneys know there are ways to reduce the stress and expense of ending a marriage. Still, they require both parties to want to end the relationship civilly.

If you believe you and your spouse can outline your divorce details without the court’s intervention, our skilled South Carolina uncontested divorce lawyers will help you understand the overall requirements so you can begin the process without delay.

Can a South Carolina Divorce Be Affordable

What are the Requirements for an Uncontested Divorce in South Carolina?

If you and your spouse meet multiple legal requirements, you may qualify for a simple divorce in South Carolina.

They include:

  • Residency Requirements

You must have lived in South Carolina for at least three months before you file for divorce. If one spouse lives outside of South Carolina, the other spouse has resided in South Carolina for a year before the filing date.

Both spouses must still live “separate and apart” for at least one continuous year before their divorce can proceed.

  • Both Spouses Fully Agree on How to Separate Their Property

You and your spouse must fully agree on separating your marital assets and debts. This can mean you do not have any shared assets or debts to divide — and both parties plan to walk away with what you came into the marriage with — or that you have an agreement in place.

  • Child Custody, Visitation, and Child Support Agreements Must Be in Place

An uncontested divorce is an ideal option for couples who either have no children or those who can make all child custody, visitation, parenting plans, and child support decisions without the court’s interference.

Why Do I Need an Uncontested Divorce Attorney If We Can Agree on Everything?

Even though a simple divorce in South Carolina is easier to navigate than a traditionally disputed divorce, the court must review the agreement before the divorce can be finalized.

We will ensure the agreement is fair and that your future is protected before you sign it. It will also allow you to navigate the filing and court proceedings without issue so you can move forward with your new life as soon as possible.
