From the Publisher
If you are at the initial and possibly angry phase and looking for signposting of the proceedings, you may want to skip straight to chapter 2 to look at the divorce process and the paperwork involved. On the other hand, if you are further into the process or considering your options, then you may find the formative and later chapters a good read.
Also, don't forget that your close family and friends may want to understand what you are going through and where you are up to so they might want to see this text to help their understanding.
From the Author
Having experienced the process at first hand and having seen the 'financials' on many occassions in my professional capacity, it is good to bring both topics together in one text to detail how the process looks to help manage experctations, both for the individual involved and their close relatives who may also want to understand the steps involved.See all Product description

The whole book is simple to understand even if you have no idea, as I did, of the divorce process. It is full of helpful advice but does not claim to be the all knowing oracle, instead it points to experts who can help in each field. There are, wisely, many suggestions of counselling to help you to get through the process and for any children who may be involved. I thought it was very sensible, and somewhat refreshing, to see the mental effects of divorce approached so candidly and talked about seriously.
The one part of the book that I struggled with was the pensions chapter, it blew my mind! Having said that it seems like an incredibly complicated topic and I think the author did his best to make it as clear as possible.
The tips given out throughout the book are very useful, for example letting us know who wont accept photocopied documents, and would be invaluable to anyone going through the process. The fact that the author has also experienced divorce himself means that he is very understanding of how tough it is and this certainly comes across, the book feels supportive yet firm, almost like a close friend trying to get you back on your feet.
If you, or someone you know, is getting divorced I would definitely recommend this book, it covers not just the legal issues but every aspect from knowing the marriage is failing to moving on after. A definite 10/10.
His writing style is easy, informative and light. With just the right amount of humour which never debases, nor makes fun, he creates an atmosphere of understanding.
Although practical, this book is reassuring. There is light at the end of the tunnel, you can survive and indeed thrive after divorce - and Keith with his personal experience and financial knowledge, through this book, will be holding your hand every step of the way.
A great book Keith. Well done.
What's so good about it is Keith's writing style ... and that he's been there, done it and got several T-shirts.
It's informative, easy to understand and all delivered with erudition and light humour. Doing the latter without patronising or belittling the situation is a rare skill.
Thank you for sharing Keith and you will save a lot of people a lot of pain and anguish with this gem of a book.
Keith's sytle is light and easy to read and offers a nice balanced approach to what can be a very bewildering time in your life. If you are contemplating divorce in the near future then this could be an invaluable purchase.
