Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
Are you legally married here, it is not clear if you are or just boy friend/girlfriend?
If you are married here are Charleston divorce lawyers with ratings for you.You can seek a no fault divorce.
In South Carolina there are five grounds for divorce:
separation of the spouses for at least one year (the “no-fault
divorce”), adultery, physical cruelty, habitual drunkenness
(alcohol or narcotic drugs) and desertion.
If the spouses cannot agree on how to divide their marital
property, the family court will make the decision for them.
Marital property usually includes all assets or debts
acquired during the marriage, with certain exceptions such as
inherited property or gifts from outside the marriage.
Your lawyer can seek to resolve the property division.Honestly I do not see that you will be able to work with the other spouse.She doesn't seem committed to counseling or other actions.I would consider a lawyer and separating here.
You can also file yourself pro se if you have too
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again and the best here.
Please let me know if you have more followup.If you can positive rate 5 stars when we are done it is always much appreciated.
