What are the consequences for unpaid child support in SC?

South Carolina, like other states, takes unpaid child support very seriously. People in the 1980s and 1990s grew concerned about the number of fathers who lived a comfortable life yet cared little about their suffering children. This led to the implementation of new policies in South Carolina, including automatic deductions from the parent's paycheck.

South Carolina couple tows baby by moped in storm

Police charged a local couple in Myrtle Beach with child neglect for towing their baby girl in a bicycle trailer attached to a moped. The weather was rainy and the city was subject to a weather advisory due to Tropical Storm Ana. The couple told police that the person who sold them the bicycle trailer said that it could be used with a moped. They had buckled the baby into the trailer, and they did not know that towing the baby was against the law.

Benefits of a lump sum alimony payment

In South Carolina, alimony payments (also known as spousal support) are generally required when a divorce causes an economic burden on one spouse. The most common example is a stay-at-home mom or dad. If you stay home to care for children, then you are likely unable to financially support yourself after a divorce and may need time to develop job skills. Another example might be a wealthy individual who marries a non-wealthy individual and neither spouse works. In a divorce, the non-wealthy individual may want to maintain the lifestyle that he or she had in the marriage, and so alimony might be granted.

Financial woes can contribute to divorce

As many families in Washington know, it can be hard to stay financially stable. Living costs are forever rising, while finding a stable job has not become any easier. All of these factors can be highly stressful, affecting your emotional well-being and even putting a strain on your family. For some, this only makes their bond stronger in the long-run. Yet for others it can highlight irreparable issues within the relationship.

What is a Parenting Plan and Do You Really Need One?

A parenting plan is an agreement between mother and father that specifies how you plan to share visitation and make important decisions about the children's education, health and overall well-being. Each parent creates their own plan, but if you and the other parent decide to create a joint one, then this is acceptable as well. People often refer to it as a "custody and visitation agreement." Both parties should sign the final plan. The court is the authority that enforces it.
