Greenwood, SC asked in Family Law for South Carolina

Q: Is there a time frame for Orders to be submitted to the Judge after a hearing in South Carolina Family Court?

Please indicate which laws and/or rules that apply, so that I can research them. Also, what are the provisions for a Proposed Order being submitted, and is there a time frame in which opposing counsel has to review the Proposed Order? To elaborate, it has been months since a temporary hearing in family court regarding visitation and there has been no proposed order presented to counsel and no proposed order presented to the Judge.

A: There is no statute or statewide rule regarding the time frame for submitting a proposed order. Although some judicial circuits have rules, it is essentially up to the Judge. In my experience, most Judges request proposed Temporary Orders within 10 days.
