A positive and easy-going guide to help individuals understand their basic legal rights and responsibilities. Times are hard for marriage - one in three couples in the UK divorce. As might be expected of such a stressful life event, many divorces are far from straightforward. They are also usually expensive and carry the risk of lasting emotional trauma to the families concerned - especially to children. Divorce for Dummies helps couples work through the separation process, from the initial decision to split up through the complex steps of divorce and then through the first steps of a newly divorced person's life.
