Marital separation usually requires division of assets and debts, determination of child custody and support, and spousal support. Though South Carolina law does not recognize legal separation, courts can set terms for residence, custody and financial arrangements when spouses live apart through an Order of Separate Maintenance and Support.

An Order of Separate Maintenance and Support can address issues including:

  • Asset and property division
  • Payment of marital debts
  • Spousal support
  • Child custody
  • Child support
