When you call to set up your initial appointment or consultation, we will first run a conflicts check. To do this, you will be asked for
your name, address, telephone numbers, date of birth, Social Security
number, and the same for your spouse or any adverse party. The receptionist
will then inform you of the required fees, advise you on
Separation and Divorce in South Carolina: A Client’s Guide, and let you know if there is additional information needed. You should not
give the receptionist case details other than those specifically requested.
This appointment cannot be scheduled by anyone other than you. Most lawyers,
including our lawyers, have a negative reaction when a parent calls to make
an appointment for an adult child. We generally
schedule initial appointments for ten o’clock and two o’clock Monday through
Friday but other times can be arranged by appointment. Initial appointments generally take
about two hours but this varies depending on your individual case.
