Raoul Felder, a take-no-prisoners divorce attorney, draws from his experience to show readers how to avoid an acrimonious divorce and move on with life
There is nothing better than a good marriage. But when a marriage goes bad, there is no better option than divorce to give men and women a chance to start over. Handled wisely, divorce can be a beginning, not an end. It is the doorway to a new life free of hurt, anger, and resentment.
Felder and Victor cover each phase of divorce, from knowing when to call it quits, to choosing a lawyer, to the final decree. They explore prenuptial contracts, mediation, alimony, child custody, same-sex marriage, and life after divorce. They also share some of the most important facts one should know such as:
• The first offer a woman gets when divorce negotiations begin is usually the best.
• In all divorces, income rather than assets determine who pays what to whom.
• Divorce is about compromise. Divorce court is not a boxing ring.
After years of watching how divorce can go tragically wrong, Felder uses his expert knowledge, including case histories from his list of celebrity clients, to suggest how to make divorce more fair, civilized, and painless.

It is written by a divorce lawyer so if you are looking for alternative options to traditional divorce I would recommend Divorce Vows by Edie Sangiorgio - a divorce mediator - who focuses more on how to emotionally navigate a divorce in an amicable and peaceful way.
