At Ralph Wilson Law, we understand just how difficult family law can be in South Carolina.
Custody disputes and divorces are becoming more prevalent with divorce rates skyrocketing in the last decade. In terms of stress, divorce will completely change your life. Economic and lifestyle changes are just a few of the encounters that will be a reality for your family. The last thing that you want to worry about is not receiving the representation to make your circumstances easier.
Circumstances are going to vary greatly from one family’s situation to another. We strive to inform you of what your options will be. There are many factors that you will need to understand.
- Finances: Child support payments may be a necessity. These payments will be taken out of your paycheck and have a negative impact on your finances.
- Custody: The vast majority of divorces we see end with the mother granted custody of the children. However, there are instances when this may not be the case.
- Assets: Unless there was a prenuptial agreement in place, your assets will be divided. This can cause an immense amount of distress as both parties will argue over bank accounts, who is going to keep the home and a variety of other issues.
Our firm will challenge the other party to ensure that you get what you deserve when a divorce is finalized. Not only does this mean child support, but money, vehicles and any other assets that should be split fairly.
Custody disputes can and will get ugly. The right to keep custody of a child is something that each parent will want. Furthermore, the rights to visitation will also need to be made clear. This is best done without having to go in front of a judge and plead your case. When in front of a judge, finances, the well-being of the child and a variety of other factors will be taken into account.
We attempt to resolve these family issues as quickly and painlessly as possible. No one ever imagines that they will need to go to a custody hearing or have to sign divorce papers, but when they do, our firm is ready to help them every step of the way.
We also deal with legal name changes so that you can go back to your former legal name if you wish.
Family law is one of the most taxing on our clients. There is quite a bit of emotional stress that can cause a person to neglect their legal rights to keep the peace. As your attorney, we will attempt to settle your divorce without needing to go in front of a judge for asset distribution or child custody.
However, we have immense experience in the courtroom and we are prepared to do everything in our power to make your divorce is as painless as possible. We can work with you from start to finish to ensure that when your divorce or custody dispute is finished, you can finally move on with your life.
