From Library Journal

This is a book about the financial fallout of divorce. It focuses on the plight of women who, despite their increased presence in the work force, often have little knowledge of their family's finances. Miller is a financial planner who writes from her experience in working out property settlements for divorcing couples. She offers case histories and uses charts, budgets, sample financial plans, settlement agreements, and vocational reports to illustrate the economic issues that must be addressed when ending a marriage. Her book covers what to do in the days right after the partners split and how to address long-term needs like pensions and retirement planning. While acknowledging the emotional impact of the process, Miller stresses the need to be pragmatic and to begin to think through the economics of the situation the moment divorce becomes an option. Women at all stages in the divorce process and with all levels of experience with money will find this to be a methodical, objective preparation for making coherent decisions about their finances. Recommended for legal and financial collections.?Joan Pedzich, Harris, Beach & Wilcox, Rochester, N.Y.

Format: Paperback
Kathleen Miller, a practical financial planner, has compiled one of the best and most comprehensive financial resource for women facing divorce. She likens divorce to riding an escalator "once you're on you are going to get off--whether under your own power or by being thrown off by the unrelenting process of the legal system (p. 2)."

Miller takes a tough, no-nonsense, eyes-open approach while holding your hand every step of the way. She divides the process into 5 predictable stages 1) Pre-divorce, 2) Decision, 3) Acceptance, 4) Mourning, 5) Re-Equilibrium. She addresses the various kinds of wives for example the starter wife, the corporate wife, and the alpha earner wife and how each one differs and faces different problems in divorce.

She helps you decide what to do first, shows you how to make an organized plan, what to anticipate and how to navigate through various obtacles. She aims to empower you to take control (to the degree possible) of what can be an overwhelming and unwieldy process. She shows you how to stay focused on moving forward, how to assemble a team to help you through the grueling process, how to choose the type of divorce vehicle that is best for your circumstances, how to cope with change, and most of all--how to avoid poverty. A glossary and appendixes are provided help you understand the not only the basics of finances but also some of its obscurities.

It's a pretty great book for a pretty awful time.

Format: Paperback
This is the 4th book I've read on divorce. It is very well-written and highly accessible. The author approaches the process in a logical, humane fashion that left me feeling empowered, rather than burdened with list of to-dos.

The author's superb table delineating the phases of a divorce with a timeline makes it relatively easy to form the big picture of what divorce constitutes. She then deconstructs each phase with clear explanations.

After reading the entire book in 2 days, I feel confident in my understanding of what needs to be done, when it needs to be done, and the emotional and legal pitfalls that I need to be aware of.

The flow from chapter to chapter makes for pleasurable reading, an comforting experience when undertaking dissolution of a marriage. Throughout the book, I felt both supported and validated by what I read.
