You Say Pro-VI-so, I say Pro-VEE-So

ProVIso, ProVEEso, it’s all about the Proviso!

Before I moved to South Carolina, I was not familiar with Provisos, however I have learned that a lot of policy changes result from Provisos.

And one recent Proviso has caught my eye, found at http://www.scstatehouse.gov/citizensinterestpage/Ways&MeansMeetingHandouts/LawEnfSubcSubcRectoProvisoSubc.pdf#page=5 and starting at 47.fca ADD (Family Court Attorney Appointment Study Group).

Why is this of particular interest to SC Access to Justice?

  • Its purpose is to Improve the process of appointing private attorneys to family court actions.
  • There is NO Fiscal Impact (read additional cost) on the General Fund. 
  • And it may serve to alleviate the issues raised in the SC Access to Justice Commission’s public hearings regarding Rule 608 appointments.

It’s a great start to exploring solutions to continue to provide legal representation to individuals in need.
