Telling your friends about your divorce.

By Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

You have decided to get a divorce.  You even hired a divorce lawyer and the papers are filed.  Perhaps even one or the other partner has moved from the marital home.  How to do tell your friends you are getting a divorce?

The answer lies in the fact of whether or not you are happy about it.  If you want the divorce, you are forthright.  If you don’t want the divorce, perhaps you are embarrassed about the “failure” of the marriage.  Or hopeful things can be put back together.  In the state of Florida, where one partner wants a divorce and the other does not, a divorce is imminent.

Divorce is never a pleasant situation.  But sometimes, the person is better for it as a result of the divorce.  Gloating just doesn’t seem appropriate, however, especially where there are children involved. 

In telling friends and family about your plans to divorce, just be sensitive to other people’s perspectives.  For more information about this or other divorce topics, call on one of the attorneys at the law office of ROBIN ROSHKIND, P.A. at 561-835-9091 or click on the Firm’s web site at

  1. Men who threaten to take away the kids are engaging in post separation violence. It is common for batterers to threaten to take children away from the battered woman by proving her to be an unfit mother. For this reason, some lawyers advise women not to tell courts or mediators about child abuse or domestic abuse because, by doing so, they risk losing custody to the alleged abuser!
