Although divorce is a specific legal process, it is often used as a catch-all term for any other matters that would be addressed during divorce or marital dissolution, such as child custody, spousal support and asset division.
At The Hyman Law Group, P.A., we are more than just "divorce lawyers." Our skilled attorneys will guide you through all aspects of your case and a variety of scenarios, including:
- Contested divorce
- Uncontested divorce
- Legal separation
- Spousal support

- Child custody and child support
Whether your legal issue is simple or complex, you can expect thorough representation and targeted legal advice from lawyers who have your best interests in mind.
Dividing Assets And Securing Your Financial Future
Like many other states, South Carolina uses the equitable distribution model of property division. This means that marital property must be divided equitably — but not always equally — between spouses.
We will work with you to fully account for assets and debts, being careful to differentiate between marital and separate property. Typically, the most valuable joint assets are the marital residence and retirement accounts.
While dividing up retirement accounts is fairly straightforward, decisions about what to do with the family home can be more complicated. If one spouse wants to keep the house, for instance, he or she needs to be able to handle all the expenses related to it (mortgage, utilities, maintenance, etc.).
Once the inventory is completed, we will work on drafting a settlement agreement that is fair and protects your financial future.
