    A good comprehensive guide if you find yourself unexpectedly contemplating a divorce.

    This book was one of the first things I bought after my husband asked me for a divorce. It was not even on my radar and I was in shock. It walks you through the different types of divorce that are available as LA Law is not a good template for divorce for the rest of us. The book clearly shows how major property like houses and retirement funds can be divided in a typical settlement. It also shows how give and take on either side can take a straight 50/50 split into more creative splits that better suit the unique long term financial needs of each individual. The number one thing I learned from this book is that it is not the upfront split of finances you need to worry about, it is planning (and getting in writing )for what is going to happen 5, 10, 15, or 20 years down the road that you need to think really hard about all while you swim in a sea of emotions and lawyers. Because, ultimately, you are the only person who will be taking care of yourself and you will be the one dealing with the financial consequences of any mistakes made in reaching your divorce property settlement. Not all money is the same in the long run and if you don't understand how the family court system works, the lawyers or your spouse will get all that you have.
