"You Need This Book First" is a series of legal titles which puts law into plain English for the lay person. The texts provide background information on the issues targeted, and take the reader through the planning and preparation work required. Financial advantages - tax and cost savings, and buisness benefits - are also discussed. "Divorce" is part of the above series and explores the options when faced with the possibility of divorce. This text looks at conciliation, with a view to settling differences, separation - either as time out in the hope of saving the marriage or as the preparation for divorce - and divorce itself. It examines the consequences of all three possibilities for husband, wife and children, and looks at the financial implications.
