Nolo’s Essential Guide to Divorce by Emily Doskow

My Staff Pick is Nolo’s Essential Guide to Divorce. It has been an extremely valuable resource in going through my divorce. You can avoid some potential problems by reading this book, and it will help to alleviate some of the stress and anxiety associated with divorce. I have heard that divorce is the most stressful event that can occur in a person’s life. Now that I have experienced it, I would agree.

This book covers topics such as: contested and uncontested divorce, mediation, custody, child support, property division, spousal support, insurance, preparing a marital settlement agreement, military divorces, and post divorce agendas. It provides financial forms that you will need to complete as part of your divorce. This is generally one of the first forms an attorney will expect you to complete. This manual includes online resources where other necessary material may be retrieved.

Obviously, I hope that none of you will ever need this book; but in some cases it is unavoidable. This book can save you time and money.

If Nolo's Essential Guide to Divorce interests you, feel free to request or check it out. We'll be back next Thursday with a different Staff Pick.
