Divorce And Legal Separation

You may not be clear as to the difference between divorce and legal separation. I will help you understand which is most appropriate for your situation. I am committed to advocating for you throughout the process, and to ensure that your children and assets are protected. I can help you with:

Family court mediation: In Horry County, mediation is required for all family law issues, including child custody and visitation. I, Lisa M. Carver, am the principal attorney of The Carver Law Firm, L.L.C., and I am a certified mediator.

• I craft professional prenuptial and postnuptial agreements that clearly state what will happen should your marriage last less than a lifetime.

Guardian Ad Litem: I advocate on behalf of the children in custody, visitation and divorce matters.

Custody and visitation: I help you as a parent understand what factors are considered in custody and visitation arrangements, including who is the primary caretaker and who will provide the most stable environment.

Child support and modifications: In South Carolina, child support payments are based on each parents' gross monthly income, along with other factors.

Spousal support: After a marriage is over, one spouse may be awarded spousal support, sometimes referred to as alimony. Spousal support is based on numerous factors, including but not limited to, the length of the marriage, disparity in incomes and marital misconduct.

• I am experienced providing guidance in any level of property division, and I know when to utilize the services of financial and tax experts in business valuation.
