Automatic discovery in family court–finally

Effective today (May 1, 2017) the South Carolina Supreme Court has amended Rule 25, SCFCR, to authorize automatic discovery in family court. In 23 years practicing under the prior rule, I only had three cases in which a motion for discovery was contested. In one case the family court authorized discovery. In the other two the family court authorized discovery but limited it to certain issues or certain types of discovery.

This automatic authorization of discovery is one less hurdle for family court litigants to clear. And for the overly litigious, now even in relatively uncomplicated cases they can demand discovery.

Put Mr. Forman’s experience, knowledge, and dedication to your service for any of your South Carolina family law needs.

Retain Mr. Forman
