Meddling In Laws and Your Divorce

Meddling In Laws and Your Divorce.

Can You Still Have Sex With Spouse While Divorcing???

by Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

I am not a moralist…I am a Florida Bar divorce lawyer.  Legally speaking, you can have sex with whomever you want to.  Florida is a no fault state.

If you are in divorce proceedings, and are still having sex with your husband or wife, this just might make settlement EASIER.  Yes, EASIER.  You still have a commonality which obviously matters to both of you.  I am a lawyer, not a therapist.  And I am not suggesting you do this, but, as a lawyer, I don’t find it entirely bad.

Sex is communication.  Divorce settlements require communication.  You can connect the dots for yourself.  For more information about this or other divorce topics, 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.

In Divorce Court Your Spouse Is NOT Your Friend

By Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

You are going through a divorce for whatever reason.  Don’t listen to your spouse about ANYTHING.  He/she may try to quiet you down by taking a passive aggressive approach, trying to “talk some sense into you”, telling you not to waste money on a divorce lawyer, saying things like “we can work it out ourselves”.    The best advice I can give you as a divorce lawyer for more than 13 years is don’t take any advice from your spouse.

Your spouse may try to give you legal advice.  Bully you.  Threaten you.  Push your hot buttons.  Make you feel like he/she is on your side.  It’s is all about unfair advantage.

You are getting a divorce.  It is time to think for yourself, consult people who will genuinely help you, and make your own decisions.  Get a life.  Know your rights.  For more information about divorce topics, call one of the divorce lawyers at ROBIN ROSHKIND, P.A. at 561 835 9091 or click on the Firm’s web site at http://www.familylawwpb.com for more information.

Remarrying Your X!

By Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

You suffered through some unhappy years of marriage…you’ve been to marriage counseling, and therapy on your own…you’ve survived your divorce and lived as a single or  a single parent…now you want to reconcile with your ex and your ex spouse agrees.

Some might say that that is a stupid thing to do, but in my practice of more than 12 years, I have seen it 5 times! With marital settlement agreements in place from the divorce, and all property and debts divided, it is starting over.

The terms of divorce stay in place.  What may be a new experience is the prenuptial agreement you should have with your now ex spouse JUST IN CASE it happens again.  Don’t remarry without one.  It gives both of you some certainty and an insurance policy of sorts. 

People grow through experiences.  Sometimes you realize what you had and what you lost.  For more information about this or other divorce topics, 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 for more information.

Be Careful Talking To Friends During Divorce

By Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

When couples divorce, something happens to their social life.  Their friends are caught in the middle.  Who is the scoundrel…who is the wrongdoer…which one of them is the victim…the gossip goes on and on behind backs.

So if you are in divorce court mode, be careful what you tell your friends.  Sometimes they can be unaware in repeating something to their spouses that gets back to yours.  But sometimes they can be judgemental or even vicious.

What is said between you and your attorney is attorney client priviledged information for no one’s ears but the two of you.  Be careful not to divulge any information to your friends or it becomes a non priviledged communication and may show up as a deposition question by the opposing counsel.   What you say to your friends during divorce proceedings should be carefully guarded.  Know who to trust.

Where To Live When Going Through A Divorce

By Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

Many couples ask the question,’ Where do I live while this divorce is pending?’  There are as many different answers as there are marriages.

Many of my clients choose to live under the same roof as the spouse they are divorcing, but in different parts of the marital home, obviously in seperate bedrooms.  That is only workable if the divorce is somewhat amicable and no history of domestic violence.

For everyone else, here are some suggestions:

1.  If you have rental property, one of you relocate to your owned rental.

2.  If you have relatives nearby, perhaps you can take up a room with them temporarily.

3.   Close friends or business associates may give you a room in their homes. 

4.  Rent an apartment or condo short term, but don’t spend beyond your means.

5.  Stay on your boat.

6.  A nearby hotel will do if all else fails.

Remember that after the divorce you are going to need to settle in somewhere acceptable so your children can feel comfortable when you have time sharing.   If you are getting divorced in Palm Beach County, Florida, 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 for more information.

Husbands and Wives Can Still Be Friends After Divorce If Done Properly

By Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

 If have seen some very nasty divorces, including my own.  But I have also seen couples who come to the realization that they just don’t want to be married any longer but can still remain business partners or friends.

How does this happen?  Usually they do no have children together.  Usually there is no boyfriend or girlfriend to break up the home.  Usually, it is a mutual decision and a decision to just get it done and get out.

Collaborative divorces are more commonplace now because of funds.  Couples want to divorce in the least stressful and least expensive way.  So with cooperation on production of documents, and settlement in mind, they go to mediation for a global resolution.  If you are thinking about an amicable or collaborative divorce in Palm Beach County, Florida, 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.familylawwbp.com for more information.
