To be eligible to file for a divorce in South Carolina, either spouse must have been a resident of the state for at least one year before filing the petition.
If both spouses are currently residents of South Carolina, the rules are more straightforward. Under this condition, the plaintiff is only required to reside in the state for three months before filing a Complaint for divorce.
The Complaint may be filed in the county where either the Plaintiff or Defendant resides or where the couple last lived as a family.
