Lewin v. Lewin, 396 S.C. 349, 721 S.E.2d 1 (Ct. App. 2011) is a published opinion from the South Carolina Court of Appeals.  The sole issue on appeal was whether the family court properly awarded mother the majority of her attorney’s fees and costs from her visitation modification case.  One unusual aspect of the Lewin case is that, after settling all issues other than fees, the parties agreed to allow the family court judge to determine fees based on briefing and affidavits.  Thus there was no testimony on the factual issues supporting the family court’s fee award.  On appeal, the Court of Appeals rejected all of father’s arguments.  For further information see: Lewin affirms family court fee award in face of Father’s multiple challenges.
