Family Law Attorney FAQs
Sentinel Law Firm’s attorneys have been working in family and divorce law throughout the Upstate and Western North Carolina for years. Divorces are often one of the biggest decisions of your life and can have lifelong consequences if you don’t have the know-how to protect yourself carefully. Not all divorces are the same, and these differences in each situation can make a large difference. When speaking with a divorce attorney, it’s important to make sure all of the facts are out in the open with them as early as possible and that they understand the nuances of your situation and how that may change the outcome of your divorce.
There are many different types of cases that fall within family law and, of course, every case is different, so it’s impossible to give an exact number. According to a survey by Lawyers.com, the average cost of an attorney for a divorce in SC is $12,600, while custody usually ranges between $3,500 and $5,500. Some of the main factors that can change these numbers include: how contested is the issue, whether litigation will be necessary, will depositions and/or hearings be necessary, can the parties come to a written agreement without the court’s help, and whether outside services will be necessary (Guardian ad litems, appraisers, etc.).

Even if you and your partner have agreed on all issues in your case, an order will still have to be entered by the court to rule on your divorce, child custody, and just about every other matter in family court. If the matter involves custody of a minor child, it’s possible that you may need to work with a Guardian ad litem to ensure the child is going to a safe home. Both partners in a divorce or custody case cannot have the same attorney, however, so it can often be helpful to make sure at least one partner has an attorney to walk them through the necessary steps of their case.
- Once you’ve been served with a complaint, you have thirty days from the date you were served to file an answer. Once this thirty-day period is over, the party that filed the Complaint may request a hearing or that the Complaint be scheduled to be heard. This thirty day window is important in making sure that your counterclaims (claims against the other party) are included, as well as some defenses to the other party’s claims. Not every type of case is the same in regards to the penalties for missing this deadline, but you should immediately call to schedule a consult if you have been served and are unsure what to do so that we can go over the next steps.
Custody disputes are one of the worst things a child and a family can go through. Whether it’s between unmarried parties, as part of a divorce, or even re-visiting custody years later, you need a dependable attorney in your corner you can trust to fight for you
Dissolution of Marriage
No one gets married thinking that their marriage will end in divorce. However, for many people, divorce is the best option for ending an unhappy or unhealthy relationship. If you find yourself in this situation, it is important to have a good divorce lawyer on your side.
Blake Welch, Attorney
"In any dissolution of marriage case, you need a lawyer who will defend your rights throughout the process."
When it comes to Custody disputes
When a defective product results in your injury, you need an attorney who will fairly represent you to insurance companies and the company that made your defective product.
“Every family and every custody case is different. That’s why it’s so important to have an attorney that listens to you and learns your story.”
