Product description

From the Back Cover

Everything you need to know about marital break-up

Divorce: A Canadian Woman’s Guide is the only book any woman considering a divorce, about to go through a divorce, or in the process of divorcing will need. A guide to all aspects of marital break-up, it’s also a book of stories from women who have come through their divorce in one piece. And woven among the stories are the ins and outs of legal and financial traps; the treacherous black ice that is the court system; the muck and sludge of custody issues; and the imbroglio of the financial settlement.

Twice divorced, three times married, a mother and a stepmother, Gail brings to her writing a wealth of first-hand experience. And her skills as one of Canada’s leading financial writers and as a journalist inform the weightier aspects of the book.

More on divorce:

  • planning for divorce
  • all the financial aspects (including what you can expect to pay)
  • whom to seek out when you decide to divorce (lawyers, counsellors, mediators)
  • how to write your own separation agreement
  • divorce with kids (how to talk to them; custody and access; the financial issues)
  • the psychology of divorce (what gets you there and what gets you through it)

"Gail Vaz-Oxlade provides vital information about all aspects of the process: from legal to financial to emotional. Woven into the practical information are real-life stories of women who have lived through divorces; told in their own words, these stories illustrate the potential pitfalls and opportunities of the process. This thorough guidebook is a must for any woman on the road to divorce."
– Diana Shepherd, Editorial Director, Divorce Magazine and www.DivorceMagazine.com
