Our vast family law experience includes representation in matters such as:

  • Divorce
  • Separate Maintenance and Support
  • Alimony/Spousal Support
  • Child Custody, Visitation and Support
  • Separation and Property Settlement Agreements
  • Prenuptial Agreements
  • Adoption/Termination of Parental Right


Issues in family law matters vary greatly; therefore, the cost of each case will differ. Costs are often dependent on the issues involved and the parties’ feelings about what issues, if any, can be settled. During an initial consultation, our attorneys will sit down and discuss your unique situation, assessing the time and expense you might expect to face and answering any questions you have.

Our firm will request an initial retainer when we are hired to represent you. This money is kept in a trust account, where we will draw against it for all attorney fees and costs expended on your case. In the event that the case is resolved before the retainer is depleted, you will be refunded the unused portion. On the other hand, if the retainer is depleted prior to a resolution of the matter, we will ask you to replenish your account.

In addition to the financial costs associated with divorce, there are significant time commitments and emotional costs as well. We will do our best to minimize both the financial and emotional outlay that is inevitable in this type of matter. Contact us today at 843-842-3500 for our initial consultation about your family law and divorce issues.
