    Good sample forms but some instructions are not detailed enough

    If you're looking for sample forms with some instruction and how to file and what the divorce process looks like, this is the book you need. It covers a variety of different situations and points you to the right forms. However, some of the instuctions on completing the forms with your own info can be a little vague. Overall, it is probably worth the money. There is enough info to file a simple divorce without an attorney. If there are contested issues (custody, child support, property), this book will help you understand the process but you should seek the assistance of legal counsel for sure.
