Family Law

The family law attorneys at Morton & Gettys provide skilled legal advice and experienced representation with compassion, personal attention and support to families facing emotionally difficult issues.

These family law situations may involve divorce or separation along with all the accompanying legal complications, including child custody, support, and visitation. Our family law attorneys also have experience helping clients with financial matters, including equitable distribution of marital assets and debts, alimony or spousal support and attorneys’ fees.

Our divorce lawyers have represented clients in no-fault divorces in which couples have been separated for a year as well as in divorces involving grounds such as adultery, habitual drunkenness, or physical cruelty. We have represented both plaintiffs and defendants at times.

Our firm also includes a certified family law mediator skilled in helping couples resolve their differences without the exhaustive legal battles that are costly both financially and emotionally. Family law mediation is now required in York County and throughout South Carolina before any court trial can be scheduled. We also offer collaborative divorce services for parties interested in pursuing that option.

The family law attorneys at Morton & Gettys also have experience in a wide range of other matters, from adoptions to parental rights issues and paternity. Call us to see how one of our family law attorneys can assist you.
