If you find yourself in the process of a divorce in South Carolina, Shuler Killen is here to support you. In our state, divorce can be pursued through one of two avenues: a one-year continuous separation or on fault grounds.

The first option, one year’s continuous separation, requires that both spouses have lived separately for a minimum of one year without sharing the same residence. This period of separation is crucial for obtaining a divorce in South Carolina. On the other hand, divorce can also be sought based on fault grounds, which may include instances of physical or emotional abuse, drug and/or alcohol abuse, or abandonment.

At Shuler Killen, we understand the unique complexities of divorce cases and are committed to guiding you through the process. Our experienced team will help you navigate the legal requirements, gather necessary evidence for fault grounds if applicable, and ensure that your rights are protected throughout. With our support, divorce proceedings can move forward, and if fault grounds are proven, you may obtain a divorce in as little as ninety days.

Don’t face the challenges of divorce alone – let Shuler Killen stand by your side to provide clear guidance and dedicated legal representation tailored to your unique situation. Reach out to us today, and let’s navigate this journey together.
