Alimony And Child Support

In many cases, the courts can require that one party provide spousal support or, when applicable, child support. Sometimes support orders are not reflective of the financial realities of the parties in question and must be negotiated. Oftentimes the responsible party may fail to pay alimony or child support. In cases where back child support or alimony is due, a family law attorney can act as your advocate and work with you to enforce court orders.

Division Of Assets And Debts

Asset and debt division can be one of the most hotly contested elements of any dissolution of marriage agreement. It is natural that each party wants to retain as many assets as possible, and leave the other responsible for debts. Charleston, SC divorce lawyer G. Edward Hawkins, III, can help work to ensure that your assets are being protected and that you aren’t being saddled with debts that you aren’t legally required to take on following a divorce in South Carolina.
