It is written by guys who know divorce and the agonies we go through. It tells us how to act and why and how not to act and why for the benefit of both ourselves and our kids. It says that time is absolutly on our side and helps us to get to that better day with integrity and resilience. It is not watered down pablum. It is strong medicine for our devastated psyches.
A wide range of subjects are discussed in a chapter format that is organized almost like a reference manual (a good thing for a man). So if you want some insight into dating again, there is a chapter on that. If you would rather explore information on the awkward time when you and your X are not officially divorced yet but co-habitating theres a chapter on that. Its easy to get to what is important to you at the moment in this book, without having to read the whole thing. As a result I have went back to this book several times as my situation matures and my needs have changed.
I would recommend that you purchase this book and read it as early as you come across it, whether or not you think you will actually seek divorce. The beginning chapters of the book, if taken to heart, might actually avoid an unwanted divorce.
Regarding the legal aspects of divorce-The law tells us how to divide "stuff" and allocate debts, how to divide parenting time and parenting decisions. But you know, it doesn't deal with the fact that the major component of divorce is relational . . . and emotional. This book is very good in explaining the emotional aspects and response options into making sound legal decisions.
There is so much information on the legal process and co-parenting that reading this before seeking an attorney will give you a better chance of understanding what result you want in your divorce. (This is not as easy as you might think) It will also assist in selecting an attorney whose goals are better aligned with yours. Buser and Sternes are conversational in imparting the information. (The book is based on Q and A) And, they say so much that I tell my clients. I would be happy if my clients had been exposed to this type of advice before they see me. People pay thousands of dollars for divorce and modification legal services.Read more ›
