Pregnancy, sickness and Divorce.

By Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

The harsh fact is…in the state of Florida, no one is forced to stay in a marriage.  Whether there is illness, a pregnancy, or other circumstances, the law is the law.  This is a no fault state.

If a party wants a divorce, he/she will get one.  The terms of the divorce may be effected by the circumstances.

For example, if a wife is pregnant and a philandering husband files for divorce, the judge’s job is to protect the forthcoming child.  ANYTHING to do with children is always modifiable by a court of law for this reason, if there is a change of circumstances.

What may seem wrong morally, does not apply in divorce court.  It is a “business decision”.  To dessert a spouse by filing for divorce has no ramifications other than from a monetary standpoint.   Right and wrong may figure into the equation, but only minimally.  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
