How To Raise Funds To Pay For A Divorce

How To Raise Funds To Pay For A Divorce.

What To Do If You Catch Your Spouse CHEATING???

By Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

I get this question all the time in my practice.  You really only have two options: you look the other way and enjoy life, or if you are not enjoying life, you file for divorce.  Florida is a no fault state.  Spouses can and do cheat.  It’s how you react and what you do or how your spouse reacts and what he/she does that determines the future.

If the cheating takes on a serious turn, the cheater may file for divorce.  Or the innocent spouse may file first, depending upon emotions.  But what I see more and more, it is not the cheater filing for divorce, but rather the innocent spouse.  The cheater generally likes things just the way they are.

The innocent spouse should gather photographs, documents, copies of everything financial, store small valuables like jewelry off premises, and spend time preparing for the other spouse to know you are angry…angry enough to file for divorce.  Sweetness helps to garner information, and often the cheater will brag to the spouse how amazing life is.  Let them talk, all the while finding out who the other person is, where he/she lives, and other forthcoming information.   Information turns into amunition.  Especially when you have all the information to give to your private investigator to determine if your spouse is dissipating marital assets on the paramour.  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.

Whose Name Is On It?

By Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

If the car is in your name only, or the house is in your spouse’ name only, if it was purchased during the marriage with marital funds, it does not matter whose name is or isn’t on it.   It will be viewed as marital property.

It is often the wife who has the wool pulled over her eyes by the husband.  He buys her a car and puts the title in her name, making him look like a big shot.  Comes to divorce, the car she finds out is half his.  She just didn’t know it all those years. 

Couples end up fighting over real estate, cars, jewelry, bank accounts, anything that has a title to it.  Gifts during the marriage are viewed as marital assets during divorce. 

So don’t be fooled into a false sense of security.  Don’t believe what you hear from your divorcing spouse.  Call one of the lawyers at ROBIN ROSHKIND, P.A. at 561-835-9091 to learn your rights, or click on the Firm’s web site at www.familylawwpb.com for more information.

What To Do If Your Spouse Has A Paramour.

By Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

If you and your spouse are separated, and there is a boyfriend or girlfriend in the picture, how do you handle such a situation?

The best advice is that everyone should mind their own business.  But when it comes to harassment, stalking or bad behavior, that is unacceptable.  A call to the police is.   And a police report will be written.

If a girlfriend or boyfriend is bothering the spouse, by stalking or telephone calls, the recourse is to get a restraining order or an injunction for protection.  And vice versa, if the spouse is stalking or telephoning the paramour, it is up to the boyfriend or girlfriend to get a restraining order against the spouse.

Florida is a no fault state.  Once divorce papers are filed, stbxs can date, have sex outside the marriage, get into a serious love relationship.  However, if it effects marital funds  (dissipation of marital assets) or children,  or there is annoying, harassing behavior, the courts can and will put a stop to it.  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 http://www.familylawwpb.com.

The Holidays and Extra Marital Affairs.

By Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

When the holidays roll around, it gets easier to discover a cheating spouse.  Why?  Because they have obligations to the paramour.  It is common for a cheating husband or wife to take some time away from the family to spend some holiday time with their lovers.

They will also spend marital monies on their lovers for gifts and hotel trysts, which may be easy to trace through credit card bills or atm withdrawals.

If you really want to be sure, put a private investigator on the trail of an unfaithful husband or wife.  You will have photos, locations, and a lot more information than you have right now.

Of what relevance is all this?  First, if substantial marital funds are spent on an extra marital lover, that has legal significance.  Second, it could be a catalyst to helping you decide to divorce or not to divorce.  If the marriage is bad to begin with, and you learn about affairs, this might help you to make up  your mind to divorce.  Information is a good thing to have.  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 http://www.familylawwpb.com.
