Two Reasons To Head To A Divorce Lawyer

by Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

As a practicing divorce lawyer for more than 14 years, I find some common themes.  I want to share these to see if they apply to my readers.  In my opinion, there are two reasons marriages break down:

Loss of respect and loss of trust.

From these, all other things follow, that most people incorrectly label the “cause” of their divorce: infidelity, in law problems, lack of communication, lack of intimacy, extended family problems, sex or lack thereof, money problems, mental abuse, domestic violence, secrecy, spying, stealing, destruction of property, power struggles, discipline of children or lack thereof, not taking responsibility and the list could go on and on.

Once a marriage falls apart due to either the loss of respect or the loss of trust, it is very hard to put it back together.  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 for more information.

How To Catch a Cheating Husband or Wife.

By Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

You may have your suspicions, but how do you actually catch a cheater?

Let me count the ways…

1.  WATCH THE MONEY.   Having a girlfriend  is like a luxury item…it costs money.   Look on your bank statements for cash withdrawals, ATM use, credit card statements, investment account withdrawals and the like.  You may find unusual activity.  Photocopy everything!

2.  CHECK THE CELL PHONE.   Repeat numbers dialed, or repeat calls received is good evidence.  Also, when your spouse is in the shower or watching his/her favorite football team/tv  show, check the text messages.  You would be surprised at what you will find.

3.  PAY ATTENTION TO HOW LONG HE/SHE SITS AT THE COMPUTER. He/she may be on a dating web site such as or communicating with a lover.   There are forensic computer technicians who can come in when your spouse is not home and can copy the hard drive.

4.  NOTATE HIS/HER COMINGS AND GOINGS.  Is your spouse out of the house most of the time?  Does he/she come in at all hours of the night?

5.  HIRE A PRIVATE EYE.  This is how you get a lot of information.  And photos.

Adultery, infidelity, extra marital affairs…today there are lots of opportunities.

By Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

When women started to infiltrate the workplace in great numbers back in the 60s and 70s, sex outside the marriage took a huge leap.   Today, there are emerging trends that are firing up the cause of many divorces once again.

We keep hearing the words “emotional affairs”, “girlfriend experience”, or “it’s just lunch”.  Internet relationships are booming, to the detriment of wives and husbands too.  Yes, women are having affairs now at much larger statistics than ever. 

Cheating spouses can be found on airplanes, golf courses, offices, coffee shops, banks, department stores.  Web sites are voluminous from Ashley Madison to  So, what can a spouse do?

You have two choices:  preserve the marriage or get out.  Some spouses  “look the other way”; some apologize and never let it happen again.   Others want to “get even” by divorcing and moving on. 

Whatever choice you make, it helps to have professional guidance.  Marriage counselors, and in some extreme cases, psychiatrists, can help with the decision to stay in the marriage or to divorce.  If you are on the receiving end of a cheating spouse, and need more information, call one of the attorneys at the Firm at 561-835-9091 or click on the ROBIN ROSHKIND, P.A. web site at for more information.
