Overview

Divorce is a difficult passage, but there are practical things any couple can do, individually or together, to make the transition as painless as possible. Every divorcing couple needs the guidance in this book because, without it, the process will not go smoothly. Author Ed Sherman, an attorney with 35 years of experience and over 45,000 successful cases, shows how most divorces fit one of five profiles. He helps readers discover their profile then leads them through the process, step by step, of overcoming what can otherwise turn into major mental and monetary roadblocks. Through its communication, organizational, and negotiation tools, Make Any Divorce Better! not only saves readers money, but puts them — not lawyers or the courts — in charge of the process, allowing them to get it done faster, with a minimum of emotional and financial expense, and move on with their lives.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Attorney and author Sherman ("How To Do Your Own Divorce" series) offers an insider's guide to making divorce go smoothly, quickly, painlessly, and inexpensively, revealing how the law works against divorcing couples and showing how to beat the system. In the Nolo Press-language librarians have come to appreciate, he discusses strategies for the difficult divorce as well as roadblocks to a decent one-e.g., ignorance, bad judgment, excessive spending, and hiding money. His no-nonsense guide to the legalities and practicalities of divorce is highly recommended for all public libraries.

Meet the Author

Ed Sherman was born in Hannibal, Missouri in 1938, graduated from Boalt Hall School of Law in 1964 and was admitted to the California Bar in 1965. Ed Sherman founded Nolo Press with the first edition of this book in 1971. Nolo Press is generally credited with giving the legal process back to the public.

In 1988, he wrote a companion title, “Practical Divorce Solutions,” for people who have difficulties reaching agreement with their spouses so they can go ahead with the actual divorce. In 2000 he met the need for self-help in more difficult divorce cases with “How To Do Your Own Contested Divorce in California.” He has authored four other books, five video programs and three software packages to help people through divorce.

In 1989 he founded the Divorce Helpline – a staff of family law attorneys and mediators who assist people doing their own divorces with advice, problem-solving and paperwork – again reducing the severe financial and emotional costs of divorce.

His 2005 book, "Legal Essentials for California Couples," introduced the revolutionary Couples Contract which provides a strong foundation for any relationship at any stage. The book has won acclaim from professionals in the fields of financial planning, accounting, couples counseling, and religious ministry.

His 2006 book, "The Couples Contract for a Lasting Relationship" (with co-author Bruce Janke), expanded the Couples Contract for use nationwide. It has been hailed by even more professionals in the above fields and was favorably reviewed by the Library Journal.

He lives in Santa Cruz, CA.
