Overview

Divorce? Now what?

Whether you want a divorce or are opposed to it, the process is not only a complicated emotional transition, but it can also turn into a detailed legal proceeding. Brette McWhorter Sember will become your advocate in The Complete Divorce Handbook, providing expert guidance on social, psychological, and financial issues in an easy-to-understand, caring manner. She examines such subjects as reasons for a divorce, what a legal separation means, how to handle a divorce yourself or find an attorney to manage it for you, the benefits of medication, helping children cope with parental conflict, child and spousal support, planning for your future, and much more. A list of resources and sample forms round out this comprehensive handbook.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Retired divorce attorney and mediator Sember has written a new companion guide to the divorce process for attorneys and divorcing couples. His book does a good job of answering questions that attorneys face, such as how to behave in court, and includes an appendix with frequently asked questions. It would benefit from more case studies, or sample filled-in forms showing a case from start to finish. How does it compare with the gold standard, Emily Doskow's Nolo's Essential Guide to Divorce? The Nolo book is geared more to those wanting to handle the case themselves, with checklists, sample forms, and a guide to legal research. Using boxes to highlight key points or introduce testimonials, the Nolo guide is easier to read. It is the superior book owing to its breadth of coverage, including international custody disputes and a chapter on military divorces. Still, Sember's Divorce Handbook is helpful. For general collections.
