Retain the Counsel of Our Trusted West Columbia Family Law Lawyers
Family law is a serious matter that can help pave the way for a brighter future for yourself and your family, or it can leave you broken and without adequate provision for the future. If you are considering divorce or if you have been served with divorce papers, then you may greatly benefit from the legal assistance of our West Columbia family law attorneys at Hall & Hall Attorneys at Law.
Our firm has been representing the residents of West Columbia and Lexington County in various family law matters since 1975; we know how to assist you in your case. While many marriages begin with expressed unconditional love, humans are ever-changing creatures, and relationships can go sour due to many different reasons. We are understanding of these situations.
The State of South Carolina recognizes five grounds for divorce:
- Physical cruelty
- Habitual drunkenness or use of narcotic drugs
- Living separate and apart, without cohabitation, for a period of one year
If you are seeking a divorce due to the fault of your spouse, then you must prove this fault. You must substantiate this claim with evidence, your claim must be corroborated by a witness, and you must present your case to a family court judge. It is vitally important to the success of your case that you retain skilled legal representation familiar with the complex process of divorce so that he or she can pursue your rights in your case.

Matters Involving Children
Upon successful dissolution of marriage, the divorced parents of children will be assigned custody rights, visitation rights, and child support payments. These various matters are the most fervently litigated actions in family court. It is important to understand that, when evaluating these issues, the South Carolina courts base decisions on the best interest of the child in question. This means they will require evidence supporting any claims that your residence is better for the child. In addition, teachers, doctors, private investigators, and other individuals with evidence regarding the child's best interest may be called upon to give testimony.
