The court may grant a divorce in South Carolina based on fault grounds. These can include adultery, desertion, habitual drunkenness (including narcotics), and physical cruelty. Additionally, the Gaffney family law court can grant the divorce on no-fault grounds based on the separation of spouses for one year.

This may be only the beginning of the divorce process. Unfortunately, there could be additional complications.
