"Meticulous and efficient"

"Carolyn was always extremely well prepared and she was very thorough in examining all the possible legal options available to me. I felt that she understood that much of my life was in her hands, and she treated me as a real person going through a very hard time- not just a another legal case."


"I love my lawyer"

"Carolyn has been absolutely amazing! Throughout our entire case she kept me updated on any and all information. Anytime I had questions or needed to reach her, she was always available by email and always quick to respond. I feel like she went to battle for my family! She's tough! I can't tell you how many times I said "I love my lawyer" during this whole ordeal. I highly recommend her."


"Kind, attentive, honest"

"From the very beginning she put me at ease. Whatever questions I had, she was able to answer them. She and her assistant Haley were always there to clarify procedures and I am blessed to have found her. I would highly recommend Carolyn and her office. They are kind, attentive, honest, and efficient. "

  • Divorce and family law disputes are always difficult, but in some cases mediation can be an effective alternative to litigated divorce. Mediation can help you minimize conflict, stress, time, and expenses. 

  • Mediation is a private, confidential, decision-making process in which an impartial facilitator (mediator), helps both sides reach a solution to their problem that both parties can accept. The mediator does not take sides, and all decisions are made by the parties themselves.  If no decision is reached, the parties are free to go to court. 

  • Mediated agreements can help better facilitate co-parenting, and parties who reach a mediated agreement may be more likely to abide by it in the future. 

  • Common issues that can be addressed at family mediation include child custody, visitation, child support, private school expenses, alimony/spousal support, and property and debt division, including use of the home, vehicles, and bank accounts.

  • Our experienced staff can help you understand whether mediation may be right for your case. If a mediated divorce is a good fit for you, attorney mediator Carolyn M. Bone can help you move towards attempting a peaceful resolution. Contact us at 843-261-7025 for more information on mediated divorce in South Carolina.
