I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
First and foremost, if you believe your spouse has harmed your kids, you should call the police and file a report.
The no-fault grounds for divorce in South Carolina is that the parties have lived separate and apart for one year and do not have any intention of reconciling. You do not need to file for LEGAL separation to do that. The only requirement is that you and your spouse establish separate residences. You can take your children and move out to start the one year period. Then in a year, you can file for divorce.
It's important that you are 100% satisfied with my courtesy and professionalism. Thank you.
