Family Law & Mediation

Family Court: divorce, property disputes, child custody and guardianship, adoption, and nuptial agreements can be some of the most contested and personal cases in state court. Joe and Elise have many years of extensive family law experience they are ready to put to your advantage. You need an attorney knowledgeable about laws impacting alimony, equitable division of retirement and debt, and child support and custody. Your first consult is at no charge.

Family mediation: mediation is a tool where parties in a domestic matter work with trained, certified professional to mediate—or resolve--their issues outside of trial court. After a case is brought, mediation is mandatory in Horry and Georgetown Counties. Many couples seek a mediator before anybody files a case. Many of our clients prefer to make decisionsabout their relationship, their children, and their money in a confidential setting, rather than a public one. Elise is a certified mediator committed to helping families make decisions that stand the test of time. Mediation fees are pre-set.
