Please provide some insights into the South Carolina definition of a paramour. I have sole custody and I am concerned about the ex's live in male partner. If their married obviously paramour is no longer a relavent arugment. However, let's assume he's live-in. They are out of state living in VA. My ex is saying "Definition of a paramour is someone you see outside of marriage or illicitly." What I have read one can add "lover." Please elaborate.

    • Why do you think the word "paramour" has any legal significance or any other relevance to your situation?

    • Besides potentially a paramour, she has drug selling convictions, reckless driving, driving on suspended license, 7 speeding tickets all by 27 yrs of age. he's a concern being around the children.

      Okay...those are reasons for you to be concerned about HER...why are you concerned about him???

    • Sorry, my mistake / typo. Everything I mentioned (drug selling etc.) was in regards to the boyfriend (27 yrs old). The ex (39 yrs old) has 5 DUIs, founded child neglect thru drinking, forging of breathylzer/ignition records (numerous lockouts in contrast to the zero that she documented in Family Court). I do appreciate your response to this and my other threads.

      Re: my question of the definition of a paramour in S.C., or is it in fact significantly different between states? any definition please?

      THANKS again for your time.

    • I doubt that you will find a special definition beyond what is in the dictionary. Besides, if it says "person of opposite sex staying over night", what difference does it make - from what you say, that covers it.

      Why are you concerned about the ex's boyfriend?

    • Because in our Court Order it states "paramour" and "person of opposite sex staying over night." The ex is saying as long as it's not illict its OK. I wanted to be prepared with your definition.

    • Simply put...

      If they are not married, there is a problem if the court order states that no unrelated person of the opposite sex many spend the night when the children are present.

      If she is married, you are SOL.
