Virtually every family court matter in the state requires the parties involved to file a financial declaration for the court's consideration. Additionally, in almost every matter involving child support, the court will look to the South Carolina child support guidelines. You may get a general idea of what the guidelines require and what your or your spouse's child support obligation may be by using the child support calculator available on the Department of Social Services (DSS) website, dss.sc.gov.
In certain circumstances, with DUI or alcohol-related charges, you may qualify for a provisional license or route restricted license which will allow you to continue to drive with limitations during your suspension. General information related to these types of temporary licenses is available at the DMV informational website, www.scdmvonline.com/DMVNew.
If you feel you are being treated differently or discriminated against because of your race, your sex, or your age, you may be protected by certain federal laws that prohibit this type of conduct. To obtain general information about these federal laws and what the time requirements are for filing claims regarding discrimination and the claim forms necessary to proceed, you should consult the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) website, www.eeoc.gov.
Additionally, the South Carolina Human Affairs Commission, which also investigates allegations of discrimination in the workplace, has information available about these types of claims and the requirements for pursuing such a cause of action available on their website, www.state.sc.us/schac.
