Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Anger and hurt tend to figure strongly in divorce, hand-in-hand with resentment, sadness, and fear about your future. And more often than not, these emotional woes all coalesce under the banner of money. Nolo Press is known for its thorough research and user-friendly approach to legal matters, and its book on Divorce and Money is up to its usual high standards of quality. "Think financially--act legally," the folks at Nolo say, and they explain how to do so, in detailed and practical terms, for joint accounts and hidden assets, gifts and insurance, alimony and retirement benefits, marital property and the IRS, net worth and what to do about the house. They also discuss where to seek professional help, how to keep proper records and assemble the facts, why the financial issues are so sticky, in what ways you're at risk, and how to reduce the stress and avoid the bad scenes, when possible. A life-saver of a reference book for when you're at your most vulnerable and disorganized, Divorce & Money offers practical and proactive advice to help you protect yourself and safeguard your financial future. --Stephanie Gold --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Divorce is about money, right? And this book will help you with all your financial questions regarding your budget, future planning, etc. And where has your spouse been hiding the money?? Find out! This book gives more tips on doing discovery than any other I've read. If you want a simpler book and want to let your attorney do everything (not recommended) try the Dollars and Sense of Divorce. But if you want the best reference there is, get Woodhouse's. I almost didn't get this one because of the price, but it's worth more than having 10 other books!

Even though I have been separated a long while, I purchased my own copy of this book after browsing through a friends copy. It is truly a work of art. To me, it covers more than just money topics, but how to live through a very difficult time. It touches on so many areas, while always returning to the main topic of money. I really feel like the authors are talking to me, and not lecturing about facts and figures. A real user-friendly book! Forget emotions and get this book, even if you have to borrow the money!! You will get it back tenfold...

Okay I might be exagerating but I did love this book. A friend recommended it after my husband and I decide to "part ways." I accidently picked up the other book with the same title and was not so thrilled with all the Get A Attorney advice, but then I realized my mistake and got this version -- it's SO helpful. It almost took me by the hand and showed me how to be less emotional than I would be when making decisions affecting how to split our property and bills up, and how to figure out child support.

Recently saw another book with this same title at the bookstore, so I picked up both. Of the two, the Nolo book was so much more helpful -- it assumes you want to handle most of the details yourself, and avoid lawyers, whereas the other kept talking about how to choose a lawyer (an expensive, time-wasting lawyer).

Excellent book to begin examining the financial elements of divorce. A good resource to start with before seeing a financial advisor or lawyer.
This book will at minimum prepare you for the difficulties ahead, at best, save you substantial financial expenditures.

All the dueling reviews below would have you wonder about the quality of both "Divorce and Money" books, so as an experiment I got both. It's pretty clear that this book (Nolo's) is the better one, hands down. The difference was evident in just minutes. Everything's presented in easy to read verbiage, the charts are easy to use, and the forms and checklists were really handy. Helped me and my ex make the split easier than I expected, frankly. Thank you for this book!!

Format: Paperback
It's not unusual to see bitter divorces, and the source of such bitterness is often money. Now in a fully updated and expanded ninth edition, "Divorce & Money: How to Make the Best Financial Decisions During Divorce" is a guide to money side of divorce. Chapters cover how to deal with touchy matters through applying even-handed, level-headed wisdom, and how to craft outcomes that should leave both parties satisfied. Guiding divorcees through the process of evaluating their assets, dealing with taxes, child support, and more, Violet Woodhouse gives a complete and comprehensive breakdown on the economic side of splitting up. "Divorce & Money" is an absolute must-have for any divorcing couple.
