Appeals in Family Court cases are taken up to the South Carolina Court of Appeals. This Court has the authority to review all decisions regarding matters of alimony, child custody, visitation, termination of parental rights, property distribution or divorce. The Court of Appeals also can review the final decision in any case involving the South Carolina Department of Social Services (SC DSS).

When an appeal is successful it can result in a reversal of the original Family Court order or a return of the case back to the Family Court with additional instructions being provided to the judge.

To discuss appealing your Family Court order contact James Snell at (888) 301-6004. We are able to represent clients in appealing Family Court decisions from any County in the State. Due to the extensive nature of initial consultations regarding Family Court appeals a consultation fee is required.
