This publication gives its readers a heads up and a solid plan for those a drift in divorce proceedings. It tells of issues you may not have considered or known about and questions you need to ask your attorney. However, I was fair with mine by telling him that I was doing some reading on my own. He encouraged me to keep reading. Found the book made for good chemistry between us saved a lot of time(fees)and brought out many details that would have been over looked.
