Divorce Attorney says read this!,
This review is from: The Guys-Only Guide to Getting Over Divorce and With Life, Sex, and Relationships (Guys-Only Guides) (Paperback)
I am a Board Certified Family Law attorney in Tarrant County, TX. I have been in practice 28 years and I have had over a thousand of male clients. There is not one of these clients that would not have befitted from this book. The advice is so good, at least the part that relates to the legal aspects of separation and divorce. The rest of the advice appears to be very good as well, however I am limited in evaluating some of it due to my gender. Actually, a number of the chapters women need to be reading as well.
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. I recommend spending under twenty dollars and your time in order to maximize the effectiveness of your legal decisions.
The brain needs to hear the same message several times in order to "get it". Buy the book, read it, read it again several times through the process.
