  • The South Carolina Family Court has jurisdiction to equitably divide the parties’ marital property. There is no preset rule regarding the division of assets. Instead, the Courts consider variety of factors, including: the duration of the marriage; separate maintenance and/or alimony awarded; child custody arrangements; physical and emotional health of each spouse; financial/economic circumstances of each spouse; vested retirement benefits of each spouse; the need for additional training or education to achieve income potential; liens or encumbrances on property; nonmarital property of each spouse; tax aspects of the divorce; support being paid by either spouse regarding a prior marriage or child; desirability of retaining the marital home; each spouse’s contribution to the marriage; fault or misconduct of either party; and any other factors that the Court deems necessary to do equity and justice.
