From the Publisher
During her eight years of research and work on over 700 divorces, Laura Johnson observed how lawyers and the courts handle divorces. Based upon what she learned, Laura believes that you must educate yourself about divorce and primarily use lawyers and other divorce professionals as consultants to help you plan and manage your divorce strategies. Her straight talk about divorce, divorce lawyers and family courts, as well as her easy-to-understand explanations of tactics you can use in a financial divorce, help you take a more assertive and informed approach toward your divorce.
The book contains a practical, step-by-step action plan and worksheets that help you devise your divorce plan for before, during and after the divorce. Since divorce lawyers often play a great role in the management and cost of a divorce, Laura includes a chapter about what you should look for in a good divorce lawyer and how to control legal fees. There are specific chapters for real estate, retirement, self-employment and small business to help you understand how a divorce affects these assets and sources of income. The book also has a handy index to help you quickly and easily find what you are looking for and a glossary that explains in simple, everyday terms the legal jargon used by divorce lawyers.
