You or your spouse must meet the South Carolina residency requirements for the District Court to have jurisdiction of your case. The requirements before filing your Complaint for Divorce (the document that initiates your divorce) are as follows:
The spouse filing for divorce must have been a resident of South Carolina for at least 1 year, unless both spouses are residents, in which case the spouse filing must only have been a resident for 3 months. There is a required 90-day delay from the time of filing to the time of the final decree of divorce. The divorce may be filed for in: (1) the county where the defendant resides; (2) the county where the plaintiff resides if the defendant does not live in South Carolina or cannot be found; or (3) the county where the spouses last lived together if both still live in South Carolina.
In order to use this service, you and your spouse must agree (or eventually agree) on getting the divorce. Your spouse's participation is minimal, being he or she will only have to sign a few documents and return them to you for filing with the court.
The most common "uncontested" ground for divorce in South Carolina is:
Living separate and apart without cohabitation for 1 year.
