In the months and years following a divorce or court orders related to unmarried parents, your life circumstances can change.

These are the types of circumstances that can make existing child support, parental rights/child custody, or spousal support orders no longer viable.

Modifications of Family Court Orders in South Carolina
Child custody orders may be modified only if it can be shown to the court that there is a substantial change of circumstance and the modification is in the child's best interests. For example, a modification may be needed if a parent has fallen into alcohol or other substance abuse, has become involved in criminal activity, shares his or her home with someone abusive, or has developed other harmful or negligent habits or circumstances.
Child support orders may also be modified where financial or health circumstances warrant it. These modifications may be based on the changed medical or other needs of the child, a serious illness or injury of a parent, incarceration of a parent, additional children to support from new relationships or marriages, or substantial increases in income for either parent.
Lastly, alimony modifications may be sought by either party who can show substantial financial changes. These changes generally involve improved or diminished earnings, serious illness or disability, or the supported party’s remarriage or continued cohabitation with a romantic partner.
