Richard Marsden has produced an excellent guide for men using the family courts : it is accurate, comprehensive, and above all provides the information needed to defend your interests and maybe obtain justice. This is information which you are unlikely to obtain in consulting expensive lawyers. The book therefore repays its purchase price many, many times over.

A really good book for those up against a hostile ex wife. I also bought FAMILY COURT HELL by Mark Harris which details all the inside court stuff in his access case (133 hearings, two jail terms for contempt). You can't read enough of these sort of books if you are up against a difficult or dishonest ex, stops you feeling like it's only you it's happening too!

The infighters guide to divorce by Richard Marsden

It is just common sense

I am always a little bit wary of self published books as i wonder why the author could not have got it published professionally. The size atA4 is also an unusual size. He has produced an index which in my view is must

The chapters are set out clearly so you know where to go for each topic. He has also set out clearly all the documents you will need from divorce petition to notice of appeal.

He suggests that from the start you should defend the divorce and at each stage lodge an appeal or complaining as in to how you have been treated. A few years ago I would have said that was a waste of time but unfortunately the systems these days are designed to steamroller us all so you might as well take the opportunity of complaining at every stage as it can do you now harm.

As he says by opposing the petition is gives you a negotiating position.He suggests that you represented yourself but you would have fool for a client.

Lawyers unfortunately will just want to settle come what may and have no person interest in the outcome of the case apart form getting paid. Although it sounds to the layman that barristers spend their time arguing arcane points but in reality they want the matter settled as quickly as possible so they can move on to the next case.

Judges also similarly want the parties to agree rather than have a hearing and have to make a decisions. None of their decisions can be wrong if the parties have kindly agreed between themselves.

Whether you are representing yourself or using lawyers this book is a must read As a result of reading this I saw a reference to Family court Hell and I read that as well. A harrowing true story of how the system works..

A must read for anyone who thinks the courts are a fair place.

This is an invaluable guide. It is never too late in the divorce process to get good advice from this book. I only wish I had it much early on.
Men would go into marriage much wiser if they only knew what they migh loose at Divorce. There is no such thing as reasonable, fair or justice if your case ends up in court. My only disappointment was there was very little useful information on dealing with the CSA. The CSA can make your life hell especially if you work overtime or get paid bonuses ! This book has all the letter templates you need to fight the system. I thought I was alone.. Have the confidence to Challenge the System! Fight for Justice..
