Re: Self-Represented Litigant Child Support Modification Packets 


I find that the South Carolina Center for Fathers and Families, Supreme Court Access to Justice Commission, South Carolina Legal Services, the South Carolina Department of Social Services Child Support Enforcement Division, and South Carolina Court Administration developed instructions and forms which have been compiled in Self-Represented Litigant Child Support Modification Packets for plaintiffs and defendants.  The purpose of these documents is to provide instructions and forms for people who cannot afford an attorney but would like to file an action to decrease or increase a child support obligation.  The documents will be available at courthouses and on the South Carolina Judicial Department website. 

Therefore, pursuant to the provisions of South Carolina Constitution Article V § 4,

IT IS ORDERED that the Self-Represented Litigant Child Support Modification Packets are approved for use in the Family Courts of South Carolina.  The new forms and packets are located at
