About South Carolina Divorce Laws
Divorce proceedings begin by establishing ‘grounds’ for divorce. In other words, it’s important to establish what has caused the desire to divorce and whether the desire is mutual between the two parties. Many years ago the Courts required a person to prove grounds for the divorce. Otherwise it would not be granted. Adultery and cruelty were often cited as grounds.
In this day and age it is much different, however. Divorces are most often filed under the so-called “no-fault” method, wherein irreconcilable differences are cited as grounds for the divorce. However if the couple can’t reach agreement under these grounds it may be necessary to establish some other basis for divorce. This might include drug use, drunkenness, bigamy, cruelty, etc. This is usually avoidable since most parties agree to follow a no-fault divorce case.
