Making Decision To Divorce

by Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

Remember the way you felt when you knew  you wanted to marry your spouse?  You were about to make a life changing decision.   Making the decision to divorce is even more difficult.  It is life changing for certain, but to put it bluntly, it is messy and unpleasant even under the best of circumstances.

If you are not sure what to do, but you know something is not right with the marriage, first consult with a marriage counselor or therapist.  Or if there is an open line of communication with your spouse, try to discuss the situation with him/her.  Of course, where there is drinking or drug use, or abuse and violence, this will not work.  But know that it is a process to get to the point where you know you want to consult with a divorce lawyer about your legal rights.
By the time most people get to my office, the decision is made to divorce, but not always.  Sometimes fear prevents people from coming in for a consultation.   Generally, a consultation with a divorce lawyer is a learning process.  You will get educated about your rights.  You will be able to ask questions and speak candidly.  Some clients feel a whole lot better when they leave than when they arrived.   If you think you might like to have a confidential consultation with a divorce lawyer in Palm Beach County, just call for an appointment at 561.835.9091.  You can also view our web site for more information at


Divorce Consultations Are Very Telling

By Robin Roshkind, Esquire West Palm Beach, Florida

If you are not sure about the state of your marriage, it can never hurt to SECRETLY consult with a divorce lawyer.  A consultation will do many things:  it will help you understand your marital rights;  it will help you determine how to protect your assets and your children;  it will help you decide whether to go to marriage counseling, reconcile, or move forward with the divorce, and further, when and how to time the filing for divorce.

Divorce lawyers ask a lot of questions.  They also provide a lot of information which can ease your mind.  For a complete list of documents to bring to a consultation, see the Firm’s web site at for more information, or call one of the divorce lawyers at 561-835-9091.

Time to Divorce is After the Holidays

By Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, FL

Some folks still do it the old fashioned way…that is, staying together for the sake of the kids.  With the holidays having come and now gone, those who were unhappy, fighting, and miserable, during the holidays, and staying together just for the kids…now is the time to divorce!

Get your act together.  Find out about the family finances.  Get copies of those bank statements and credit card bills from 2014 and bring them in to see me.  The time is now.  By the end of January, it becomes tax preparation time.  You will have to gather financial information anyhow, so your spouse will not suspect you are preparing for divorce.  Keep it quiet until you get all your ducks in a row.  Preparing for a divorce is like being a private eye.  You need to set up before you do anything.

For advice on what will be needed or what your rights are, call or come in for a consultation.  You don’t have to take it anymore.  The holidays are over and it’s time to move forward.  See our web site at or call today for more information 561-835-9091.
