Overview
"I Want a Divorce, Now What?" is a how to guide for anyone who is either thinking about divorcing their spouse or has already begun the process and is looking for help. Just because your marriage is unsuccessful doesn't mean your divorce has to be. The author is an experienced family law attorney with over 20 years experience. He uses several real life examples to illustrate the concepts he writes about without "sounding like a lawyer." Each Chapter describes a different part of the process: Chapter 1: "Get Your Financial Ducks in a Row or You'll Get Soaked" describes the planning necessary to protect assets. Chapter 2: "Don't Play Tug of War with Your Kids" talks about the most litigated issue in any divorce, the custody and placement of children, and how to avoid a fight, or if you have to fight, how to win it. Chapter 3: "Meet Your New Best Friend, Your Divorce Lawyer" describes how to find a good lawyer. Chapter 4: "Discovery and Pretrial Procedure: Unfolding Your Road Map to Freedom" describes in understandable terms the technical aspects of the family court system. Chapter 5: "Child Support and Alimony: Playing Checkers with Your Money" goes over these support issues and describes what the courts consider when making decisions. Chapter 6: "Property Division: Grab Your Slice of the Pie" describes how courts divide assets and debts fairly. Chapter 7: "The Trial: The Endgame" walks the reader through the daunting process of going to court and dealing with the judge. Chapter 8: "It Ain't Over Til It's Over" describes the many issues that come up after the divorce is final and how to deal with them. "I Want a Divorce, Now What?" is written for the lay person who needs help and doesn't know where to start.
