About the Author
Nifty handbook for women seeking a divorce in California.
This book was given to me by a friend and it had been given to her by a friend. It was just the book I needed when I started my divorce process. It is filled with the information I needed to prepare myself while not feeling overwhelmed with all the legal jargon. I read it quickly the first time around and then have reread parts as my divorce progresses.
