Attorney Robert Clark

Robert has lived in Greenville his entire life. He grew up in the Gower Estates area attending First Baptist Church, Sara Collins, Beck and J.L. Mann. He went on to attend the University of South Carolina and graduated in 1991 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. During college, Robert received a scholarship to attend one semester abroad in London, England. After college, Robert came back to Greenville to work in his family’s heating and air conditioning business. Robert has two older brothers, so his father split the company up and Robert took over the service and replacement company while his brothers ran the new construction company. Just a few short years later, Robert’s father passed away in 1995. Both of his parents are from Abbeville and his mother lives in Greenville.

What Our Clients Say

5/5

Writing this review on behalf of my son, R. Lanier. He is in the military and was looking to get a divorce and he was not in the states yet. This office handled his case and he couldnt be happier. It took maybe 3-4 mths. He states that they were professional, very nice and whenever he had a question they answered it. He would recommend this office for all your family needs.

Bodean Roberts

You couldn't ask for a better attorney than Robert Clark. He has a wealth of knowledge and expertise - and he won my case! His main concern throughout the process was the well-being of my child, and he made sure that the best decision was made in court. I recommend Robert Clark and his group to anyone who needs representation.
T.A. Hyder

I was referred to Greenville Family Law by a co worker. My husband and I meant with Mr. Clark and Mr. Saccogna regarding legal advice on custody of our grandchildren. We were thoroughly impressed with their legal advice, professionalism, and willingness to help. Mr Saccogna represented us on all 3 court hearings. He was extremely personable, professional and detailed. Mr. Saccogna always returned emails and phone calls promptly. He truly cares about the children's best interest and worked tirelessly on our case. We won custody of our grandchildren and we will forever be thankful to Mr. Saccogna. I would highly recommend Mr. Saccogna to my family and friends.
Stacy Bigham

Robert and Nick prepared a prenuptial agreement for my husband and I. They were both very attentive and understanding of our desires. Their pricing was reasonable as well. Throughout the process, they made sure that we fully understood what we were signing and were comfortable with the agreement in its entirety. Don't let the appearance of the place fool you as it is not how you might normally picture a typical law office. The downstairs of the building houses an HVAC business, and they are the ones who greet you when you walk in the front door before showing you upstairs to Robert's office. I will definitely be back for any future legal needs as I know I will be in good hands with these gentlemen.

Family Law

Family law is an area of legal practice that focuses on issues involving family relationships, which can include child custody, adoption, guardianship, divorce or estate planning. Sometimes, family lawyers will focus on a single area of practice, such as child custody, while others will handle a full range of family-related issues. Because each state has laws regarding marriage and adoption, the state governs most family laws and legal procedures. Interpreting the laws can be an arduous process. Most family law cases will require an experienced attorney to provide a clear understanding of the current rules and regulations for family law in Greenville, SC.

Divorce

Divorce Based on Fault

An experienced divorce lawyer in Greenville, SC knows that there are four fault-based grounds for divorce recognized in South Carolina. These are adultery, physical cruelty, desertion and habitual drunkenness/drug abuse. Years ago all divorces had to cite one of these fault-based grounds, today they are much more uncommon. That’s because there is now a no-fault basis for divorce in South Carolina.

No-Fault Divorce

The fifth ground for divorce in South Carolina is living separate and apart for one year without cohabitation. Those who cite this as the basis for their divorce are seen as filing a no-fault divorce, because no one party is blamed for the demise of the marriage. An experienced divorce lawyer knows that this has become increasingly the way that most divorces are handled, given the ease of a no-fault divorce and the benefit of not having to drag your former spouse through the mud.

Child Custody

Sole custody is a variety of custody that was often preferred in years past. Sole custody exists when one person has temporary or permanent custody of the child. An experienced child custody lawyer knows this means that the children reside with the parent full-time and the parent also has the right to decide any major questions that arise concerning the children, including education, medical care, extracurricular activities and religion.

Joint custody is more commonly awarded today than in the past as many experts in the family law world acknowledge the benefits that come when children spend time growing up with both parents. An experienced child custody lawyer will explain that joint custody means both parents share time & control over the kids.

Grandparents’ Rights

It is common for grandparents who are worried about being cut out of the lives of their grandchildren to consider the possibility of filing for legal custody or visitation. These concerns can become especially pronounced if one parent dies and the grandparents fear that their child or child-in-law may pull away from them. Other times, grandparents may become estranged from their own child, resulting in diminished or nonexistent contact with the grandchildren.

No matter the reason, the lack of connection with close family members can be devastating to grandparents, especially those who may have served as caregivers or surrogate parents prior to the estrangement. To find out more about grandparents’ rights in South Carolina, keep reading.
