How to handle changes in custody and visitation

Parents in South Carolina who are getting a divorce may face a number of issues regarding visitation, custody and child support in the years ahead. One common situation is that the noncustodial parent may start to want more time with their children. This parent should not withhold child support in an effort to make this happen. Instead, talking with the other parent and pursuing a modification in court is the right approach.

In divorce, student loan debt may be divided

When South Carolina couples get a divorce, if one of them has student loan debt, both may end up responsible for paying it off. In general, student loan debt that dates from before the marriage is not considered shared property and will remain the responsibility of the person who originally took it out, but student loans that were incurred by either spouse after the couple were married may be considered shared debt along with things like credit card debt and mortgages.

Expenses a judge might not consider in child support orders

After North Carolina parents go through a divorce, one may begin paying child support to the other. A child support agreement is either negotiated outside of court or ordered by a judge. A judge who makes a ruling on child support will consider the parents' combined incomes and the child's monthly expenses.

Older divorcing adults face greater chances of poverty

As the divorce rate has dropped among younger couples throughout the country, the rate for couples over the age of 50 has been on the rise. Divorce for any age group can leave one or both parties in a financially difficult position, and for older South Carolina couples, it may imperil their retirement. One study found that a woman is more likely to work past her retirement age if she divorces when she is older.
