About Custody, and a MUST READ

I agree that this book is about dealing with a custody battle. If you have children, and are thinking about getting divorced, I recommend you read "Divorce Busters" because the custody process is truly horrible, and because there are a lot of marriages out there that could and should be saved. Unfortunately mine was not one of those, and this book has been invaluable in guiding me through the process intelligently. There are few underhanded tricks listed, which I rather approve of (although it does mention that you should interview the town's "Shark" lawyer before your husband does so that he can't hire him) Just a LOT of good advice! Read this before you choose your lawyer, and you will get a lot more bang for the considerable bucks you are likely to be investing. Read this BEFORE you leave your family home if possible! But do read it; you won't be sorry.

What Every Woman Should Know About Divorce And Cusody

This is the most thorough and informative book on divorce issues that I have read. As a divorce attorney, I am always curious to know what other attorneys are thinking. Ms. Smith's perspective and commentary mirror much of my own experiences and conclusions. The book is easy to read and filled with relevant, realistic examples and practical advice. I highly recommend this book to both nonlawyers, who have a reason to learn about this subject and to lawyers so they can refine and expand their knowedge of the divorce process.

What Every Woman Should Know About Divorce and Custody

This book was an indispensable guide during my divorce and custody process. My husband had a better lawyer, but the knowledge I gained from this book was an equalizer.

An invaluable resource!

What a pleasure to find a practical and informative guide to give to women going through divorce and custody battles. As a clinical social worker who sees the ugly side all too often, it is a relief to give women a thoughtful and clearly written book that will empower them with extremely useful and practical advice at a very emotional time in their lives. Thanks to the authors!

An essential resource for anyone in the divorce process.

What Every Woman Should Know About Divorce and Custody by Gayle Rosenwald Smith, J.D. and Sally Abrahms, is an essential resource for women in the process of going through a divorce, as well as for those contemplating divorce and even post-divorce, when custody and child support issues continue to resurface. It tells it like it is, in a clear, concise manner. This book will be a real eye-opener to those entering the process, and provide new insights to those immersed in, and even theoretically beyond the process. Many lawyers treat the divorce process like an on-going game, which the legal system enables. This process can victimize women, in particular. The best defense a woman can have is to be well-informed and well-prepared for the battle, which many (ex)spouses choose to wage. Every woman involved in a divorce, regardless of her lawyers ability and reputation, owes it to herself to become educated about the process, the potential problems, and helpful strategies. That is the essence of What Every Woman Should Know About Divorce and Custody offers. If there is one book that a woman going through a divorce needs, this is it. This book will likely become a repeatedly consulted reference throughout most womens divorce and custody process.
