It helps if you are the ones who decide on custody agreements. A final order results in a final settlement of the appeal. It may be either the result of a final negotiation agreement of the parties on all the issues raised in the pleadings (the applicant`s appeal and the defendant`s counterclaim) that the court subsequently authorizes, or following a judge who testifies and examines the evidence at the hearing and makes a decision on those matters. In the final order after the hearing, a judge is required to establish detailed facts and draw legal conclusions to justify the judgment. As soon as a final order is issued, all temporary injunctions issued in this case are no longer in effect. Previous final orders are no longer valid, as the new final order explicitly or implicitly modifies the previous final order. Unless a party files an application in accordance with the procedure set out in Rule 59 SCRCP or appeals, the issuance of a final decision terminates the appeal. While some issues may be reconsidered in the final orders of the Family Court in cases of essential circumstances – family allowances; the visit; child custody; and modifiable alimony – other topics can never be discussed – divorce; the distribution of real property; lawyers` fees and expenses; and non-modifiable support or refusal to pay support. Even the final discharge, which can be modified, is more difficult to modify than to obtain in the first final order; For example, it is more difficult to change custody than to obtain custody in a first custody case. On May 9, 2006, the South Carolina Supreme Court issued an administrative order requiring all family court appeals to be brought to trial or tried within 365 days of filing. When that year has elapsed and no final order has been made, no trial has been scheduled and no preliminary proceedings have been requested, the author of the Tribunal shall send a notification that the appeal is dismissed if no preliminary proceedings are requested or if a final hearing is scheduled within thirty days.
