Child Custody And Visitation Guidelines In South Carolina
In our society, there are various stereotypes about how much involvement mothers and fathers want in their children’s lives. At The Carver Law Firm, L.L.C., in Myrtle Beach, my clients have one thing in common: They want what is best for their children.

Understand The Child Custody Factors
When the court is establishing parenting plans, they take a number of factors into consideration. I help parents understand what factors will be considered in custody and visitation plans, including but not limited to:
- Who is the primary caretaker?
- Do both parents have stable housing?
- Do both parents have stable jobs?
- Does either parent have a history of abuse?
In addition to the previous living situation, the court is also concerned with how the new situation will affect the parent’s ability to care for their children. For example, if one parent is considering relocation, will that make it challenging for the child to have meaningful time with the other parent? As the principal attorney of The Carver Law Firm, L.L.C., I, attorney Lisa M. Carver, am committed to helping you answer these questions in order to make informed decisions about your situation.
