Going from Married to Single…lots to consider.

By Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

The divorce process at best is a tangle of voluminous paper work, keeping emotions in check and taking care of household bills and children.  It can be stressful under the most amicable of circumstances.

But there is much more to consider other than the family finances and medical bills for the kids.  How does one go from being a part of a family unit to being on your own, alone, by yourself, in charge of your own time and money?  It is a HUGE adjustment.  You have to consider the following:

1.  your calendar

2.  your work schedule

3.  what do to in your free time

4.  doing your own banking, taxes, doctor’s visits, travel by yourself

5.  going to the grocery store, JUST FOR YOU

6.  your kids schedule

7.  relationships with family and friends

8.  coming home to an empty house

9.  coming home to a house filled with kids

10.  setting up your own lifestyle, sexual and otherwise

Being alone and in charge can be something many divorced people enjoy and even look forward to.  It just takes a lot of getting used to.  For more information call one of the divorce lawyers at ROBIN ROSHKIND, P.A. at 561-835-9091 or click on the Firm’s web site at www.familylawwpb.com.
