Publisher's Summary

The knowledge every man needs for a successful divorce

Each year, 500,000 men will face divorce, and most of them make at least one crucial - and often irreversible - mistake. These errors might seem minor, such as moving out while things get sorted out or thinking of "temporary" orders as being truly temporary. But when they get to court, these men discover they have put themselves in a terrible position. They may have to give up their house, pay impossibly high alimony, or even lose custody. 

You could be one of these men. But you don't have to be.

Joseph Cordell, the founder of the nation's largest law firm focusing on men's divorce and the creator of DadsDivorce.com, has seen the consequences of the mistakes men make. Drawing upon the huge number of cases that Cordell & Cordell has handled, this book identifies the 10 most common mistakes that end up hurting men in divorce. Cordell demystifies the divorce process, explains what judges consider in making their final decisions, and lays out a road map for positive actions men can take to achieve the best possible outcome.

No man should face divorce without this book.

Must have if you have been threatened with divorce

This book helped me understand exactly what I would be getting into with a divorce and provided critical information that men need to get through this pivotal moment in life.

Don't be a fool, get this book and fight fear with information.

I got more from this book than my attorney. I wish I’d read this before getting married, actually.

Great book but not for Men in Gray Divorced

They did a great job putting helpful information and combining true life stories to support thoughts and practices. But so much of the book was for younger men.
80% dealt with maintaining yourself in order to get joint custody etc. I am not saying they didn’t touch on points needed for older men’s causes. The court preparation information was very helpful and the fact of only talking when needed and not sharing where the divorce was or where it’s heading was helpful. John, put a book us for us over 50 and our concerns about property, monies, 401k, changing our wills and other ideas. That would be very help and I will repurchase the book. Other was the book was very helpful. Sending it to a friend with young children.

A must read for any man before getting a divorce!

Even though it was written quite a while ago, most of the material is still relevant to today's divorce process.
Very down to earth. Very practical and immediately useful. Even the occasional sarcasm is funny and often hilarious.
