My mom moved to South Carolina a couple of years back and this was the sight that she told me to use. She said she loved everyone on here, that everyone was very insightful. This is my dilemma. I am in the middle of a divorce and I have three minor children. We want to relocate to South Carolina to be closer to my mom, dad, my two sisters and my niece but my lawyer wants me to get as much information about the area as possible. I need to get statistics about home, economy, schooling, unemployment rates, etc. I need to then present this to the courts to see if the move will be aloud. I am in love with South Carolina. I have been since the very first time I was there. If anyone could help me with information I would greatly appreciate it. Thank You so much.

This one is very easy. Pick a town or several towns/ cities you might be interesting in.

The go to Google on the internet and type in the name of the town, followed by the words " city data. " A website will appear which will have all the information you could ever want about that town.

I'll give you a link as an example- you can use any ones you want. This is city-data info for Conway, SC- a suburb of Myrtle Beach . Read through this one, keep scrolling down as you read, it's very long and very informative. This type of stuff should keep your lawyer happy.

Good luck

Do you want to live near your family? Where do they live?

I would love to live by my family. They are in Anderson County in Easley South Carolina. I would love to be down there with them and my children would also be in favor of that. They love being there as do I. I'm just praying for enough information so that a judge will allow for the move. I've come up with a game plan as far as visitation would go for the children and their father but the problem I have is he doesn't want me to go and his mother loves to win battles so that means I have to fight that much harder to get where I want to go. To them this is all a game which I am tired of playing. Its not about the children its about winning the game to them. I'm just trying to get all the support and information that I can get so that we can get down there. Thank you for the site. I will definatley take a look and start getting more information.

Read through the city -data site again-some f it is recent to 2012, some not. But, that said, Google is your friend. Just type your questions into Google and you'll find the info you need.

I'll do one for you- here is unemployment figures. There are several other sites with similar info

Greenville-Mauldin-Easley, SC Economy at a Glance

Same thing with housing costs, rental info, let Google be your resource. You'll just have to research your info piece by piece.

You can also Google crime statistics etc. Use either Easley itself or the Greenvile SC metro area as your parameter.

All the info you want is on the internet- you just have to look it up.


Good luck
