Biography

Megan was born and raised in Moncks Corner, South Carolina, a small town about 30 miles north of Charleston.

While attending the Charleston School of Law, Megan served as a volunteer guardian ad litem, advocating for the best interests of children in abuse and neglect cases. She also had clerkships with the Charleston County Family Court and a local family law firm.

When Megan is not practicing law, she is attempting new recipes, trying to become a runner, singing loudly and offkey, 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.

Providing efficient representation for her clients is the foundation of Ms. Dell's practice. She offers exceptional service that is both affordable and effective, and is committed to pursuing fairness and integrity while advocating for your interests.

Legal Answers
Q. What do I do if I and going through a 2 plus year divorce in sc and spouse owes child support but ran off to AZ
A: A private investigator in Arizona should be able to run a "skip trace" to try to determine his whereabouts. You might also search for any public records related to his speeding ticket -- the jurisdiction where he received it likely has an address for him.
Q. What’s the best way to keep finances separated if you are about to marry a man with child support
A: This is actually a question about taxes. Married couples can file taxes in one of two ways: "married filing jointly" or "married filing separately." Filing your taxes as a married person, either jointly with your spouse or separately, does not affect your fiance's obligation to pay child support. It also will not create any obligation by you to pay child support for him/for the benefit of his child(ren).
Q. How to stop wage garnishment in South Carolina
A: S.C. Code Ann. Section 63-17-1470(B) provides that a person who is subject to income withholding may petition the Family Court to terminate the withholding if (1) there is no longer a current order for support and all arrearages are paid; or (2) the payor has not previously terminated withholding then had it reinstated and meets the conditions for an alternative arrangement (such as an agreement with the person receiving child support).
