5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By L. C. Pollitt on 7 Aug 2012
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you're just starting out on the divorce journey, you'll find this a useful and well-written guide. It's easy to follow and thoroughly researched, focusing on financial and legal aspects that are so often forgotten in the tumultuous early days of separation. At the same time, Sarah Pennells acknowledges the huge emotional and psychological impact of divorce, both on the adults involved and, more importantly, on children.

The book contains a lot of useful, no-nonsense advice - of just the sort you need at a time like this - and unlike many authors, Pennells takes the time to outline the unique differences in law within the UK, especially in Scotland and Northern Ireland; invaluable for me as I'm in Scotland and before reading this book had no idea how much Scottish procedure varied from that in England and Wales.

Pennells also provides a helpful guide to picking your way through online advice sites and DIY divorce services, some of which are trustworthy and some of which are dangerously ill-informed.

Read this book before you go to your solicitor and you'll save a lot of money - because you'll already have found answers to many of your questions - and you'll also know what questions you do need to ask.... :)

... if you want a clear, well-informed guide to the legal and financial practicalities of divorce (and if you are currently divorcing, you should, even though the temptation is to put your head in the sand), I'd highly highly recommended Sarah Pennells' book.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Richard J. Neale on 24 July 2010
Format: Paperback
I got this book on order as soon as I found out about my wanting to separate as I wanted ot
sort my finances and know what to expect.

The book covers the basics quite well but not a great deal of detail.

What I did was to arrange a free appraisal meeting with two solicitors in whch you get free advice,
having read the book I already had a good idea of the basics which is helpful.

Overall I learned that the male of the marriage, assuming he is the main earner is destined to
come out if the settlement worse off with a 3rd of the assets not the 1/2 you might expect!
That is based on a clean break tyoe arrangement with no alimoney to pay.
