Customer Question
My son is a...

My son is a Union Welder and is on the road working. He's been in a relationship for 8 years and they have a 4 year old daughter together. He's not sure how they will classify his relationship with the Mother. She worked when they got together but then once their daughter was born, she's been staying at home. He has his own home that's free and clear and she's had a home that was owned by her and her ex-husband. He wants out of the relationship, so what' his next step? Thank you, ***** *****(###) ###-####

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

I'm sorry, it's South Carolina.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

The main questions are the custody issues and property, too.

Sorry for the delay. I'm sorry to hear about your son's situation.

Are your son and his daughter's mother legally married?

Lawyer: Nisha Jones,

I believe your concern may be that since SC is one of the states that still do recognize common law marriage, that your son may be considered married?

Do you know whether:

(1.) him and his girlfriend had the intent to be married (even without obtaining a license), OR

(2.) whether they told other people that they were a married couple (as opposed to a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship)

Those factors would have to be present for his marriage to be considered a common law marriage.

I'll wait to hear back from you and we'll take it from there, thanks!

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
