Candace S. Faircloth was born and raised in the small rural town of Loris, South Carolina, and immediately fell in love with Union County and surrounding areas for their familiar small-town charm. She received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science with a minor in Pre-Law from Coastal Carolina University before pursuing her law degree and became licensed to practice in North Carolina in 2013. Candace is a North Carolina Board Certified Family Law Specialist representing clients regarding all aspects of Family Law.

Prior to joining Collins Family & Elder Law Group, Candace was in the courtroom daily, advocating for victims of domestic violence in her role as attorney fellow with Safe Alliance. Since joining Collins Family & Elder Law Group, Candace has vigorously advocated for her clients both in the courtroom and in settlement negotiations regarding divorce, child custody, child support, spousal support, property division, and domestic violence protective orders, to name a few.
Candace is committed to providing common-sense legal representation to her clients by guiding them through the complex divorce process from start to finish.

Well-Prepared at All Times
In my practice, I strive to be well-prepared at all times and in all aspects of each case. My goal is to ensure that each client understands all potential outcomes and the likelihood of certain results, whether the client chooses to let the courts handle their matter or resolve the matter outside of court. I do this so that my clients are well-prepared to move forward in their lives once this part of their life is over.

Candace was amazing when I met her I was unsure and low and n faith and she was strong, a fighter. Not only did she help give me the strength to get through that incredibly hard period but she fought and fought hard.- Brandy G.
