At the Fender Law Firm, we recognize what is at stake in child custody disputes and we approach every one of these types of cases with a child-centered approach.

We understand the complexity of child custody cases and the emotions that are often involved with all involved, including the children.
Paternity Attorneys South Carolina
An important component of a child support or custody case is establishing paternity. Whether your partner denies having any claim to your child, or you are a father wishing to obtain custody of your child, it is vital to work with an experienced family law attorney in your paternity case. Fender Law Firm has proudly served clients throughout the Fourteenth Judicial Circuit, including Beaufort County, Jasper County, Colleton County, Hampton County, and Allendale County with savvy legal representation and counsel in paternity law cases.

Mediation Attorneys South Carolina
When handling family issues, emotions can sometimes run high and miscommunications can happen. If you are approaching a divorce, separation, or child custody modification, reach out to a qualified legal mediator in South Carolina. Even if you get along with your current spouse or co-parent, it can be nice to have an unbiased third party to keep your interactions smooth and efficient. For those hoping to avoid lengthy and stressful court battles, mediation can provide a solution that is safe, compassionate, and surprisingly effective. While mediation isn’t right for everyone, it is a wonderful option for couples looking to solve their family legal issues without the hostility.
Military Divorce Attorneys South Carolina
The emotional strain and hardship of divorce affects everyone in the family. When military families go through divorce, additional complications arise with custody, military pensions, military healthcare, property and more. Fender Law Firm will make sure you understand your rights and we’ll fight for what’s fair.
Separation Attorneys South Carolina
For some spouses, divorce may seem like a drastic step that should not be entered into lightly. For others, they have realized that the marriage is over, but they do not meet either the fault-based requirements (adultery, drug/alcohol abuse, abandonment, or physical abuse) to file for a divorce under South Carolina law. For folks in this situation, separate support and maintenance is an option. Similar to “legal separation” in other states, a separate support and maintenance action allows a spouse to seek relief from the Court as to custody and visitation, child support, spousal support, equitable division of property, and have the Family Court put various restraining orders in place such as prohibiting parties from incurring marital debt or disposing of marital property. If you are contemplating separating from your spouse, give us a call to set up a consultation. We will discuss various options that you may have and work together to come up with a plan that is best suited to help you reach your goals.
