Reviews - What do customers think about What Every Woman Should Know about Divorce and Custody?

should be 6 stars....tremendous for a man's perspective.  Aug 7, 2007

What Every Woman Should Know About Divorce and Custody is a necessary resource for women and men in the process of going through a divorce, as well as for those trying to decide whether or not to divorce, and even after divorce, when custody and child support issues still rear their ugly heads. It is clear, concise, and comforting. This book is a real eye-opener to those thinking about or just starting the process, and provides important information and tactics to all readers about this brutal process. Many lawyers treat the divorce process like a chess game and this book gives you an insider's view of the system. This book arms you with the information to wage the battle. The book is newly updated. It gives good tips on e-mail, virtual visitation, spyware, and other twenty-first century issues that I hadn't even considered. I had read the author's book Divorce and Money and I found this book on custody to be a great help with all of the custody issues.
LOVE THIS BOOK  Mar 28, 2007
I read this entire book from front to back in 1 day. IT WAS GREAT. Full of useful information and makes you feel that you can do this wether your the initiator or not
About Custody, and a MUST READ  Jan 24, 2007
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.
Very Helpful  Sep 12, 2005
Well written, easy to understand with loads of advice and comfort for those going through the challenges of a custody battle. The author shares some of her own experiences and leaves you with a feeling of hopeful optimism. I consider this a must-read for any parent going through a divorce. I thought that her comments on dressing for court and behavior during separation were common sense, but perhaps there are some readers who would need to understand better how their image and demeanor affect a judge's perception of them as a parent. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone trying to gain custody of their children.
What Every Woman Should Know About Divorce And Cusody  Feb 22, 2004
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.
