Throughout the case, multiple procedural orders might be entered to keep the case moving along. Examples include orders appointing a guardian ad litem, requiring a party to produce discovery responses, or requiring the parties to attend mediation.
Final South Carolina Court Orders
A final order is the document that ends a South Carolina divorce case, typically after a final divorce hearing in South Carolina. This is the order that establishes each party’s rights and obligations related to the end of their marriage. These orders must contain findings of fact and conclusions of law to comply with Rule 26(a), SCRFC. For many (but not all!) people, the final order also includes an award of divorce from their spouse.
