Hilton Head Family Law Attorneys

Family law attorneys handle many common family law matters, including, divorce, separation, child custody, child support, alimony and support, visitation, name changes, resuming one’s maiden name, adoptions, restraining orders, and dividing assets and debts. Often, parties to a separation and divorce are able to work towards mutually agreeable terms and enter into a written marital settlement agreement as a resolution to the dispute.

Other times, parties require some or extensive discovery and litigation and a Judge to decide these issues for the parties. Whenever a minor child is at issue, the court will usually appoint a Guardian ad Litem to represent the best interests of the child in the dispute.

Child custody, support, visitation, and other matters are also often at issue outside of a separation and divorce. Moreover, a change in the circumstances following a divorce may lead either party to eventually seek the assistance of the court and a court order changing the terms of a previous court order or settlement agreement between the parties.

A simple divorce wherein the parties have little or no marital assets and debts, no children, and have been living separately and apart are often expeditiously resolved by entering into a written settlement agreement and obtaining a final court order and decree of divorce. One may resume her maiden name in a divorce proceeding.

Alimony and spousal support may also be sought by one of the parties from the other, and alimony is usually in the form of money. There are many types of alimony, including permanent and periodic alimony, lump sum, and rehabilitative. Your Family law attorneys should advise you as to your rights as to alimony and support claims along with your divorce, separation and custody matter.
