Vannoy Law Office Domestic Litigation
Domestic litigation encompasses a wide variety of areas including divorce, child support, alimony, child custody, property division, and others. There are two types of marriages in South Carolina: Statutory and Common Law. Statutory marriage is what most consider a "traditional marriage" in which parties enter a contract to be married and this contract is "approved" by the State. Common Law marriage is quite different and involves many factors that may or may not equate to a legal "marriage".
Sometimes the nuts and bolts of divorce law and litigation are difficult for many people to comprehend. Why does the State get involved in such a personal relationship between two people? This is a natural and logical question. However, the response I give to clients is that the Government give parties certain rights once married and is a "party" in a sense to the marriage contract. Parties going through a divorce deal with very difficult monetary, physical, and emotional issues. Contact my office today for a confidential consultation and domestic case evaluation.
