South Carolina recognizes four "fault-based" grounds for divorce: Adultery, Physical Cruelty, Habitual drunkenness or drug abuse, and Desertion. With a fault-based grounds for divorce a final hearing may be requested within 90 days of the date of the filing of the Complaint. In addition to the "fault-based" grounds for divorce, South Carolina also recognizes a "no-fault" divorce in which the parties may get a divorce after living separate and apart for one year.
