Divorcing Parents

Protect Your Children From The Trauma Of Divorce

When you’re a married parent, you’ve made two strong lifelong commitments: one to your spouse and one to your child. The commitment we make to our children should never be broken, but sometimes the commitment we make to our spouse can no longer be upheld. This is a decision not to be taken lightly, but it’s one over 700,000 couples make every year in the United States.

At the end of the day, you have to make the right decision for yourself and your family. South Carolina is a “no-fault” state which means you don’t have to waste time justifying your reasons for ending your marriage. Instead, you can focus on making sure you get the most out of your separation and preserving your rights and goals as a parent.

When you work with Holmes Family Law in Bluffton, South Carolina, you are bringing a compassionate and experienced attorney into your circle. Whether you and your spouse have decided that divorce is definitely the next step or you are just beginning to research what divorce might look like for you, our divorce lawyer can help you feel secure about your decision, whatever that may be. We will help you navigate the trouble of going through a divorce when children are involved and we will ensure that you know your rights and don’t do anything that ever risks the integrity of your case.

Divorce is hard, even under the best circumstances. In addition to the emotional strain, there are deadlines that need to be adhered to and forms that need to be properly filed. While our firm believes that mediation is the best choice in divorce, 85% of the time, we understand that sometimes you may need a little more. By working with us, we come up with the rock many divorcing parents need to navigate these troubling times. Make us a part of your journey to a new beginning and make sure your divorce doesn’t snowball into an ugly courtroom drama.
