Against the cost of a divorce, the cost of a few books is trivial and worth doing. This one contains all the forms and some good advice about how the process works, and what to expect. The sections on filling out the forms plod a bit and don't always explain why to do things one way instead of another. Even with my Ph.D, I really struggled to follow what I was supposed to do. And of course you are really stressed about it, so a stronger, clearer guiding hand would have been better. My biggest beef is that the details are not updated year to year, so date stamping the cover is just a trick to sell more books. For example, my new copy didn't even have the address of the court correct. I used a paralegal in the end, rather than doing it all myself, and they had the whole inside story of what to submit when and how. The book is worth having, but a recent used one would have been good enough. Find a good paralegal and do it that way would be my advice, because they have the local experience and cost $1000 rather than the tens of $k you'll spend on lawyers each.

Excellent "How to Book" for Divorce. If your looking for a "How to Book" for a Legal Separation this book does not expand on the subject. Since "Divorce" and "Legal Separation" can be very similar when filing your paperwork, this book will help you through the process but you will have to fill in the blanks.

Overall you can find a very detailed, well put together book with "Step by Step" instructions that takes you through the whole process from beginning to end. You will also find a time saving CD included with all the forms needed to file ( The CD alone is worth the price paid for this book).

FYI - If your limited on cash, you can always find this book at most libraries.

Even though divorce is sad but a must for some. This book is a MUST have for a do-it-yourself person. Best Wishes!

Good source for the step by step details on how to to draft your own divorce filing without lawyers. I used this book for my own divorce that was executed succefully even with a child. Although it greatly helped the my former spouse was very civil during the whole ordeal.
