Product Description

Synopsis

Any couple contemplating divorce needs to be aware of the legal procedures involved and the financial implications of the decisions made at this stressful time. This guide explains the process in simple, straightforward terms so that they can discuss the issues before embarking upon it. This new edition of "The Which? Guide to Divorce" cover all the effects of the Family Law Act 1996, including those yet to be implemented. As well as explaining recent changes to legal aid and the proposed changes to Child Support, pensions and the implications of the Human Rights Act 1988, it steers couples through the maze of legal and financial issues surrounding divorce by providing, in easy-to-understand language: a step-by-step guide to the stages of the divorce process; information on court costs; tips on how to find the right solicitor; and a glossary and list of useful addresses. The book also discusses the role of mediation and the way in which the Family Law Act deals with domestic violence and matrimonial home rights. The differences in divorce law and practice in Scotland and Northern Ireland are explored in separate chapters.

In addition, the book points out the differences in the law for unmarried couples.

By A Customer on 16 Jun. 2001
When one is taking the first steps into this minefield, decent advise is necessary! I have previously read Which? guides to other subjects and so I knew I could trust it. The Guide has an easy index to find specific information, or browsable chapters. The additional reading suggested at the end is very useful as well. I was impressed with the book and thoroughly recommend it to anyone who is taking their first (or last!) step into this murky area!!

Prior to buying this book, I had attended a couple of free sessions with lawyers to discuss my circumstances. I was dismayed that in both cases, after speaking to 'wet behind the ears' juniors - who seemed to have limited knowledge of divorce law - but an indepth knowledge of their fees P>If you trawl the Net for information - you will also find that Lawyers are less than forthcoming with free information. This book stands head and shoulders above others. It gives clear, comprehensive, impartial advice, and encourages couples to engage in mediation in order to resolve issues, in a manner less costly than funding adversarial lawyers.
My problems are not yet resolved, but this book has demonstrated that there are methods of attaining an outcome suited to both parties in a civilised and less costly manner.
