How to Solve Divorce Problems in California in 2012: How to Manage a Contested Divorce In or Out of Court by Ed Sherman
SOLUTIONS FOR DIVORCES THAT ARE NOT GOING SMOOTHLY. How to solve problems without going to court, and how to fight in court if you have to. The majority of California’s 160,000 annual divorces are done without an attorney, but as many as 70% of them encounter problems and this book addresses themmore thoroughly and clearly than anything else on the market. It helps both Respondents and Petitioners in problem cases, covering everything from mild disagreements to flat-out warfare. It helps the reader define strategies, protect oneself, negotiate for a fair settlement, make motions that get the court’s attention, demand and obtain information from the other side, and handle the case in court if it comes down to that.
Part One provides guidance on solving problems without going to court. But the reader must prepare just in case, so Part Two helps the reader strategize the case, get ready to work with (or even against) an attorney, and to obtain vital information from sometimes stubborn sources. Part Three provides a step-by-step road map to solving problems in court if that’s where it has to end up.
The back of the book contains blank tear-out copies of court forms needed in contested divorce cases.
The book includes a CD-ROM that contains many resources including court forms, typed pleadings and and trial versions of CalSupport child and spousal support software and DealMaker settlement agreement software.
