If your financial situation is complex, Wayne has the business and financial planning experience to guide you through the divorce process. Although he is a Greenville Divorce Attorney, he routinely practices in the Pickens, Spartanburg, Laurens, and Oconee Family Courts. Here are some thoughts about choosing a South Carolina divorce attorney. Hire a SC divorce attorney who shares your basic philosophy or attitude toward your divorce. If possible, you want to keep things as calm, cooperative, and non adversarial as possible. However, you need an attorney with the courtroom experience to fight for your rights if necessary. If child custody and child support is an issue, your divorce attorney should make it clear that during your divorce that you must put your children's needs first. He or she should make it clear that they will not pursue unreasonable demands for child support or help you pursue vindictive child custody and visitation arrangements that are not in your children's best interests. If there is a business or substantial marital property involved, then you want a divorce attorney that also has actual business experience, understands how to value a business and can negotiate a division of the marital property. Most divorce attorneys have little or no business experience and lack the knowledge to properly advise you during a time when your emotional involvement may prevent you from making proper decisions.
