Revolutionary new recipes for dividing the divorce pie

Whether you've been stunned by your spouse's divorce atomic bombshell or have dropped one yourself, you must avoid its potentially fatal financial fallout. The Complete Guide to Protecting Your Financial Security When Getting a Divorce helps both men and women survive economically, and ultimately thrive, with actionable how-to instructions and explanations such as:

  • Learn why an even split now is often anything but equitable later, and how to base a fair settlement on cash-flow and net-worth projections appropriate to your marriage's "economic history."
  • Find out when and why mediation or arbitration, mostly do-it-yourself, or the new "collaborative-attorneys divorce" are preferable to traditional adversarial-attorney divorce, as well as determine needs for other specialized professional advice.
  • Construct sold financial-action plans--for before, during and after the divorce--that control expenses and use optimal tax planning to preserve the maximum marital assets.
  • Understand complex property and support issues such as commingled funds, both spouses' rights to pensions and social security, business valuation, creative management of the marital home, and front-loaded spousal support.

Format: Paperback
Helps you to understand the complexity of marital debt/assets. In doing post-divorce mediation, the aftermath is worse than the initial filing of the divorce petition. Here we have two consenting adults reigning over the financial thrones of the other. Leaving their financial future in the hands of someone bitter will only gain negative results. What makes one think the court order will enforce resolution? The other party may not feel the urge to pay out of malice. This can lead to foreclosures, collection calls, garnishments, jdgements/liens, (ALL in YOUR name!!!) and frustration.

Being obligated on debt/assets and assuming resolution is a narrow-minded field of scope. This book describes the wide range of capacity in which you should consult with your attorney to ensure fair equitable distribution and negotiation. A mediator is usually sought out or court-ordered for disputes such as this.

Support issues such as commingled funds, both spouses' rights to pensions and social security, equitable business, equitable mortgage , child support, spousal support, and other dividends are dissertated in this book.

This book has so much information in it that is very useful to me as a practitioner. Divorcing couples need to get this for the outcome of what is to be.

The book shares some good advice and some of the situations you may encounter. This was very helpful, but no book can anticipate the problematic financial situations one may encounter in their individual divorce. There are situations in which you face not only an unpleasant situation, but the negative, dark side of human nature...in your mate and yourself!

This book was written to make you THINK through the process on multiple levels. It is great for those who are simply contemplating divorce, as well as those who've decided to proceed. It suggests a number of additional trustworthy resources. Definitely worth the read before proceeding.

The book has some good general information about things to consider, but it didn't provide me the kind of information I needed to avoid getting raked over the coals by my ex and the cruel California no-fault family law system. The book is too sympathetic to the philosophy that the major breadwinner in the family is morally and legally obligated to support their poor unfaithful ex to prevent them from having a reduced lifestyle after the divorce. Tough luck. I guess a divorce isn't really a divorce. California law is based on the one-sided assumption that the mate that deferred their career to raise the kids is the only one in the marriage that made any sacrifices and the policy merely protects the state from having to support them if they decide to bail. The book is in some ways irrelevant because the authors don't seem to understand that the system as it exists is the equivalent of indentured servitude. Instead, they should be devoting themselves to alimony reform because it's unfair to men. If you're a guy and your ex is trying to get set up for life at your expense, which the system will support wholeheartedly, from the arbitrary long-term alimony policy to the lawyers who make more from no-fault divorce, to the authors who promote it, don't bother with this book. Fight for your future and don't let the system steamrole you into submitting to their twisted morality. Mediate and don't let anyone tell you what you should be paying and for how long. Everything is negotiable. Oh, I guess you could say that I'm just a bitter divorcee, but until you've walked in these shoes, you don't know (yet) how it adds insult to injury to have someone else, whether it be the state, the lawyers, or authors like these, tell you how you should be spending your income after your "divorce."

This book has some good fundamental information but it is wrapped around a lot of confusing topics making it very difficult to use. There was one chapter I was most interested in - retirement accounts and 401k's however, this chapter was short and did not give me any more information than I could have gotten over the internet.
