Published in November of 2007, "Straight Talk…" provides a wealth of information to people interested in learning more about South Carolina divorce law and related family law issues such as property division, prenuptial agreements, alimony, child custody, visitation rights, and more.

Written in plain English and organized for ease-of-use, we are confident that it will quickly become a trusted resource for anyone interested in these topics.

Straight Talk about Divorce Here and Now

In South Carolina, married couples can only be granted a divorce if there are "grounds" for divorce. In simplest terms, this means that one of five provisions has been met.

To get a divorce under the state's "no-fault" provision, you and your spouse must have lived apart from one another for at least one full year. You do not need permission or cooperation from your spouse on this issue, you can simply file once the condition has been met.

The other four provisions involve the idea of "fault." In South Carolina, grounds for divorce on the basis of fault include:

  • Adultery
  • Desertion for at least one year
  • Physical cruelty
  • Habitual drunkenness or drug addiction

Straight Talk about Our Approach

Many divorce lawyers will talk "a good game" about how they handle cases. But what often gets overlooked in the practice family law is the importance of strategy.

Attorney Robert Rosen has spent his entire career, more than 30 years in all, devoted solely to handling family law, divorce, and related concerns. His approach is simple: keep your legal skills and knowledge as sharp as possible, be thorough in every aspect of preparing your clients' case, and treat every matter - whether it is a mediation conference, jury selection, or closing argument - as if it is the most important matter there is.

In approaching cases this way, and by being completely up-front and honest with clients throughout, Mr. Rosen is able to develop case strategies and implement them before trial ever becomes a necessity. This practice keeps many clients out of costly litigation and allows other methods of dispute resolution such as mediation to work as they should. It also puts us way ahead of "the game" should trial become necessary.
