South Carolina Alimony 101

When you get married, you go into the partnership believing that you'll be together forever. It makes sense, then, that most divorcing couples don't know very much about alimony in South Carolina (also referred to as spousal support). They ask questions such as:

  • Who gets alimony?
  • What is a reasonable amount of alimony?

Fortunately, working with a family law lawyer in Spartanburg, SC, can answer those questions and make alimony easier to understand and approach.

What is Alimony in South Carolina?

Many individuals often mistake alimony for child support, but they are, in fact, two distinct forms of financial obligation and not mutually exclusive. Alimony was established to safeguard a supported spouse in the event of a divorce or separation. For example, a spouse who did not work during the course of the marriage would generally have a stronger alimony claim than a spouse who worked throughout the marriage. Likewise, a spouse who worked throughout the marriage but made less than the other spouse would have a stronger alimony claim than a spouse who worked and earned equivalent income to the supporting spouse.

In many cases, a spouse may choose to stay at home to tend to the children and manage the household. Oftentimes, the spouse who remains at home has sacrificed their career or education to care for the family. In such instances, a divorce could leave the financially weaker spouse in a state of financial turmoil. Without that support system, they will have to start over from scratch. These are some factors the Court will consider in evaluating an appropriate alimony case. Throughout your marriage, you have structured your quality of life based on a budget determined by your finances. While all expenses are shared by both partners, what happens if you have been financially dependent on your spouse and need to support yourself?

At Cobb, Dill, & Hammett, LLC, we aim to assist you in securing the alimony you need to support both yourself and your children. At the same time, we want to ensure that you are not overpaying your spouse, if you are the one required to pay. You may be required to pay an amount that could leave you in a difficult financial situation. Regardless, it's crucial to have the right legal representation to guide you through the alimony process in South Carolina.

The CDH Law Firm Approach to Alimonyin South Carolina

Some people may assume financial responsibilities to a former partner are end with the filing of a divorce decree. However, if the court has mandated alimony payments, then the financial obligations survive. Failure to meet those obligations can lead to serious legal and financial consequences. Family law attorneys at CHSA Law, LLC have years of experience representing clients throughout the divorce process, including alimony determinations.

Our legal services cover many aspects of alimony law, such as:

  • Negotiating Temporary and Final Alimony Payments
  • Modifying Alimony
  • Providing Advice on Reasonable Alimony
  • Filing to Collect Unpaid Alimony

Many might wonder, what’s the value of putting a company name on a venue as big as a baseball park?

Fifth Third Bank announced in November that it sealed the deal on a multi-year agreement with Diamond Baseball Holdings, an organization that owns and operates select Minor League Baseball clubs affiliated with Major League Baseball, to become the official bank and naming rights sponsor for Spartanburg’s new ballpark, Fifth Third Park, the future home of the city’s professional baseball team, currently named the Spartanburg Professional Baseball Club.

“We are incredibly proud to partner with Fifth Third Bank to bring this remarkable ballpark to life,” said Andrew Judelson, chief commercial officer of Diamond Baseball Holdings. “Their dedication to the community and shared vision for a vibrant Spartanburg align perfectly with our goals at Diamond Baseball Holdings. We are confident this venue will not only be a premier destination but also a source of pride for everyone in Spartanburg.”

The relationship marks the beginning of a new era in Spartanburg’s professional baseball history.

“Breaking ground on Fifth Third Park marks a significant milestone in Spartanburg’s economic future, bringing new opportunities that will have a tremendous positive impact on the community,” said Spartanburg Mayor Jerome Rice.

Fifth Third Park, 131 W. Main St., will be part of a multi-use project led by local development company, The Johnson Group, and its first pitch is anticipated for the spring 2025 season. The ballpark will feature modern amenities, cutting-edge technology, and a seating capacity that ensures an “intimate atmosphere” for fans. In addition to serving as the home turf for the club, the stadium will host a variety of marquis events, making it a hub of activity for Spartanburg residents and beyond.

“We announced a committed investment in South Carolina several years ago and have backed that up by growing our teams which represent multiple lines of business in the Upstate but also into the Lowcountry,” said Charlie Arndt, South Carolina market president, Fifth Third Bank. “We live, work and play in the communities we serve so when an opportunity to support a collaboration between public and private sectors, like the planned ballpark in Spartanburg, it caught our attention both locally and at the highest levels of leadership here at Fifth Third Bank.

“We, along with all parties included in the project, believe this development will be a center of activity for the city of Spartanburg and a point of pride for Fifth Third Bank and the community.”

In addition to a 3,500-seat stadium, the overall $425 million baseball district development area is the largest economic development project in the city’s history and will include 200,000 square feet of office space, more than 375 apartment units, a 150-room hotel, parking facilities to house at least 1,500 vehicles, and a large public plaza and event space. Construction on the project will take place in phases, with the stadium and first parking structure expected to be completed first and subsequent phases to be completed over several years.

“Serving our communities is the focus of our business and we are confident this ballpark will enhance the lives of the Spartanburg community,” said Arndt. “Fifth Third Bank is proud to extend our long-term commitment to Spartanburg and the Upstate through this partnership and our continued retail expansion.”

The Spartanburg Professional Baseball Club will be a minor league affiliate of the Texas Rangers. The SPBC name is currently a placeholder until a new club name, logo, and mascot are unveiled to the public, in which Tyson Jeffers, the general manager for the Spartanburg Professional Baseball Club, said he hopes to be in April.

“In partnership with Fifth Third Bank and The Johnson Group, we are going to build one of the most beautiful facilities in minor league baseball,” said Jeffers. “Our goal is to establish a community-first culture here that harnesses the unique personality of the Upstate and creates nationwide attention for Spartanburg. But most importantly, Fifth Third Park will be a community destination for fun any night of the week.”

Jeffers said at the OneSpartanburg Inc. conference on Friday that the No. 1 question he has received is: when will season tickets’ sales be open for purchase?

He said they hope that by the end of January, a waitlist will be up-and-running for the public. Business event bookings is anticipated to be open in October, said Jeffers, while single tickets should be available for purchase beginning of January 2025.
