If you are looking for a Charleston, Berkeley, or Dorchester divorce and family law attorney, then Dell Family Law is prepared to meet all of your legal needs. The practice of family law requires a comprehensive approach to address the many issues affecting dissolution of marriage. Dell Family Law serves clients in Charleston and surrounding areas in the following practice areas:
There are several types of marital agreements available to couples who are beginning or ending a marriage. Each is unique and has specific legal requirements to be valid and enforceable, and include:
Pre-Marital Agreements: These agreements are drafted prior to a couple getting married, and are often used to define division of assets should they later divorce.
Marital Settlements: When a couple agrees to a divorce and on all terms related to their divorce, then their agreement can be written and signed, and then approved by a judge without the need for a trial.
Post-Nuptial Agreements: After a couple gets married, they may decide to plan for the possibility of a future divorce by outlining their agreement on property and children’s issues. This is especially true when the couple has decided to reconcile after separating for a period of time.
Divorce and Separation Actions
When a marriage is ending, there is the necessity of filing a formal divorce with the court that will detail all areas of shared property and responsibility. Dell Family Law will work to ensure that your interests are protected, including those related to division of assets and alimony, and then ensure that the final divorce decree will be approved by the court.
Care and Custody of Children
One of the most sensitive issues in a divorce are the details affecting children, and a well-prepared divorce decree will always include provisions for child custody, visitation and support amounts. A clear agreement about your children helps reduce future conflicts and can address future changes that could negatively affect their best interests.
In some cases, it is necessary to establish paternity of a child. There are clear means and tests available to make sure that parental identity and responsibility are legally assigned and enforced.
Dell Family Law can represent you as your family law attorney regardless of your situation. We will use our experience with the Family Courts of South Carolina to make your legal process as smooth as possible for your entire family.
