I never felt alone with Brittany as my legal counsel
I had been married for only 3 years. One day my then husband told me he was not happy and I should leave and go be near my family. I was in shock, I had moved 2 hours away from my family after a 2 year battle to beat stage 4 lung cancer - I agreed to move to help him care for his aging parents. Of course I agreed, he was my husband this is what marriage is....We had a home near the Ocean and I thought we were happy, I was. I did everything he asked of me and then some- but it is what you do in a marriage.... Soon after he told me to leave I found out he was moving another woman into my home. I can't believe there are women out there like this one..... it was a dark and ugly time for me. I had been let down and lied to by my husband - I just do not have the words. Well I do but they are not for this review :) Soon after I was sent separation agreements that I refused to sign as they were all about him.... he then threatened to make sure I had to pay all the fees if I did not sign so I knew it was time, I needed someone on my side.... I called several attorneys who all told me that I did not have a case or much of one as we had only been married for 3 years. I could not understand why this mattered, he had an affair- what is the point of marriage if it only counts after 10 years! I was heart broken, I felt rejected by a man I thought to have been my best friend and now attorneys were basically rejecting me as well. I saw Brittany on line, there was something there that drew me to her, I knew she would fight for me and she did.....Brittany NEVER made me feel as though my feelings just did not matter. I counted in her eyes..... I was in fact important to Brittany, or she made me feel this way. All I wanted from this horrible, greedy man was the divorce on the grounds of adultery and for it to be over quickly. She was able to get me exactly what I wanted. When other attorneys wanted 2 times as much and told me that I did not have much of a case as it was not a long enough marriage Brittany was supportive and honest and told me that she could not promise that outcome I desired but she would fight for it. With this I knew I finally had someone on my side. She never let me feel alone. She understood what I was going through and was very thoughtful and she new the law! I would highly recommend Brittany if you find yourself in this horrible situation. I hope you never do. Brittany cares about her clients and winning the case for them, when others seemed to care more about how much money I had to spend, that was the least of her concerns...... I can recall a couple of our conversations that she just let me vent - She cares for her clients and will fight to get you what is fair. She never let me down, she always lifted me up. If I had to do it again I would choose Brittany all over again.

Legal Answers
4 Questions Answered
Q. Can I move in with my mother at 17 without my father's permission?
A: In SC, in order to be able to make this decision on your own you would need to be 18 or older. However, if 18 is pretty far away, you could always speak with you mom about requesting custody of you through the family court.
Q. Do I have to send my son to his fathers if he told me a day before when he wants to get him and I have no milk prepared?
A: Always follow the parenting plan. If the order is clear on when he needs to provide notice and that notice doesn’t happen, you are not in violation. However, it is important to be very clear on what the order provides so that you are properly protected.
Q. I have been married 3 years to my husband and we don't have any assets together. I acquired my house before the marriage
A: You should contact an attorney who services the area where you last resided as a married couple ( assumingly, the county where your home is) asap. Unfortunately, if you do not have a fault based ground for divorce, you will have to wait 12 months from the time the two of you separated before you can get a divorce. However, contacting an attorney now will give you the opportunity to have a judge order your ex out of the home, allowing you to live there exclusively while you wait the 12 months. The cost of divorce varies greatly. A consultation with your chosen attorney will provide you with that information.
