In South Carolina, property acquired over the course of your marriage (as well as debt incurred) are divided equitably. Factors that will go into the judge's decision about how assets and debts will be divided include:

  • Income of each spouse, as well as each spouse's earning potential
  • Any need for additional training or education to attain fullest earning potential
  • The length of the marriage
  • Property values
  • Emotional and physical health factors
  • Alimony and/or child support

In addition, you may be able to collect all or part of a spouse's retirement or pension retirement plan benefits through a court-ordered QDRO, which is an acronym for "qualified domestic relations order." QDROs are not an automatic part of your divorce, they must be prepared to include a minimum of 11 legal requirements. As your lawyers, we will make sure that your QDRO is completed accurately, filed in a timely manner and signed by a judge.
