When things go wrong with your marriage, you may need the help of an experienced divorce attorney. April D. Porter will help you navigate the entire process, and will fight for your best interests in family court. Her own divorce taught her just how emotionally, financially and socially difficult a divorce can be. Be assured that you can count on her advice in these difficult times.
In South Carolina, there are specific requirements for a divorce to be granted. Where other states have “no fault” divorce as a rule, South Carolina law requires certain reasons (such as abuse or adultery) or at least a year of separation before granting a divorce. At your initial consultation, April D. Porter will discuss with you how your particular circumstances impact the timeline of your divorce.
Obtaining a Divorce can be complex because of the many difficult questions that are required to be answered.
- Who will care for children?
- How will the children’s needs be paid for?
- How often will each party have parenting time with the children?
- Should one party receive financial support from the other?
- How will property be divided?
- How will debt be divided?
Addressing these questions to fit your situation requires expertise in areas of family law that include child custody, child support and alimony.
Many times the complexity of a divorce case makes it difficult to reach an agreement between the two parties. Mediation and possibly litigation are then needed to reach a solution. April D. Porter will help you through the mediation process and negotiations of a settlement; however, if a settlement cannot be reached, she will be ready to fight for you in court in front of a family court judge. She has the experience and attention to detail needed to help you reach the best possible outcome in a difficult situation.
