When Megan is not practicing law, she is attempting new recipes, trying to become a runner, singing loudly and off-key, and reading. Megan and her husband live in Ravenel with their children and cat.

Megan exclusively practices Family Law, representing residents of Charleston, Berkeley, Dorchester, and Horry counties.

Legal Answers
Q. My friend was sentenced to 30 days concurrent how soon can i get her out She is in there for child support
A: Generally, if someone is incarcerated for nonpayment of child support, they have been held in civil contempt, and they can be released once they pay the amount set by the court as the "purge payment." The County Clerk's office can tell you how much the purge payment is.

However, if someone has been held in civil contempt multiple times for failure to pay child support, the Family Court might hold them in criminal contempt and require them to complete a specific sentence in jail, and they are required to fulfill the sentence.
Q. If my father is my “biological” father as my parents claim why did he have to legally adopt me at 5 years old?
A: First, even if he had done a DNA test and was determined to be your father, the test result (by itself) would not be enough for your birth certificate to be changed. Your parents would still have needed to file an action to have him added to the birth certificate.

It is very possible the original case was *not* an adoption, but actually a case to determine paternity and change your name. The two types of cases can look the same to non-lawyers because they involve the same issues.

It is also possible that someone (perhaps his lawyer) decided pursuing an adoption, specifically, was the best option based on the facts of the case.
Q. How do I file a motion we're my ex wife is not doing what the judge ordered in Marital property without a attorney
A: To seek to enforce the provisions of a prior court order, you must file a Rule to Show Cause. The requirements for a Rule to Show Cause are laid out in South Carolina Family Court Rule 14.

The South Carolina Supreme Court does not provide sample forms for enforcing orders related to marital property. Additionally, most Rules to Show Cause are very dependent on the facts of the case so it is unlikely any online template would be useful.

Though you have said you would like to proceed without a lawyer, because a Rule to Show Cause has such specific pleading and evidentiary requirements, it is best to hire a lawyer. If you are able to successfully enforce the prior Order against the opposing party, then the Court can require them to reimburse your attorney's fees. ... Read More
