Imagine being able to calmly and confidently face the divorce process, knowing what to expect each step of the way so you can make the best decisions for your future.
When you're facing a divorce, it's easy to feel overwhelmed by everything. You know you need reliable information before you make any major decisions. Where do you get it, though? For most women, advice from friends just isn't enough.
Hi, my name is Tracy,
I went through a divorce myself, and have worked with divorcing women for several years. I know from experience what an impact divorce can have on a woman’s life.
When I went through my divorce, I was emotionally raw, worn down by all the decisions to be made, and frustrated by the lack of good information.
Consequently, I made my fair share of mistakes. Having learned my lessons the hard way, I made a promise to myself that no woman would ever have to face this journey alone.
As a result, I started the WomansDivorce website in 2001 to help other women going through a divorce, and have done so ever since.
The Facts You Need About Divorce!
Divorce is complicated. Every day I see the sad outcome of what happens when women go through a divorce unprepared. Unfair property settlements, outrageous attorney fees, and months (or even years) spent battling it out in court.
To help you get the best outcome from your divorce, I created a comprehensive guide based on the actual questions and concerns of real women just like you. Organized in easy-to-follow chapters, this manual will help you understand the basics of divorce and identify what needs to be taken care of before, during, and after your divorce.
"Thanks for publishing this..."
It reads like a labor born of love and concern for women and it comes through brilliantly. I've documented over $400 worth of books that I've bought about separation and/or divorce, but Divorce 101: A Woman's Guide provided perspective that was more valuable to me than those put together.
Helping You Meet the Challenges of Divorce
When you're dealing with mixed emotions, upset kids, and an uncooperative spouse, you don't have the time or energy to spend hours searching for the answers to your questions.
Let's face it, it's easy to get distracted, confused, and overwhelmed by all the information available on the internet. You can avoid this needless frustration by getting everything you need in one place, leaving you more time to spend with your children (and maybe even catch up on a little sleep ).
"The information in this book is so valuable"
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!! I am at the beginning of a divorce which I am filing against an emotionally abusive and controlling husband. The information in this book is so valuable to me as I am uncertain of my rights and of future consequences of decisions made during the divorce. This is the best $20.00 I have spent!

"Very clear and useful information"
Divorce 101 had very clear and useful information regarding the many things a woman needs to know before she sees a lawyer, and good advise for abused women. It was an excellent resource with information I have not read elsewhere and there forth do not know. I've kept it on my laptop to refer back to as my divorce progresses. Thank you for writing this book.
"The worksheets alone were worth the price of the book" ~ Jeanne
With Divorce 101, you'll get handy worksheets to help you:

I liked the worksheets you included. They gave me a complete idea of what I was going to be working with in regards to money, and especially my living expenses as a divorced woman as compared to now, where my husband pays most everything.

What About The Kids?
When you have children, there is more to consider than just who gets the house and how everything will be split. Divorce 101: A Woman's Guide will help prepare you for the various custody arrangements and visitation issues so you can decide how your children's lives will be handled, not some judge.
The included worksheets serve as a tool to help you draft a parenting plan that fits the needs of your children and your unique situation. Having this well thought-out parenting plan will help avoid future conflicts with your ex and make life easier on your kids.
"This is a must have..."
This book is a must have at the beginning of a divorce. Things don't always go well for women as we often aren't as knowledgeable about the law and what can happen in a divorce. There was a lot of information regarding the children, which was excellent.
Understand How Support Issues Work
It's common for a woman's standard of living to go down after a divorce, but you can take steps to make sure you receive the amount of support you and your children deserve. Lets face it, raising kids is expensive, and both parents should share the financial responsibility. Divorce 101 can help you understand what's important in determining both child support and alimony, as well as what your options are when the support payments aren't being made.
"A woman must fight for her future"
Women must take an active role in their divorces. Hire the best family/divorce lawyer you can afford, snoop into everything you can. If your husband is stalling the divorce process keep track and have your lawyer demand attorneys fees for the stonewalling. I did it and won my retainer back, $7,500. Most women's standard of living goes way down after a divorce whereas a man may suffer for a year or two. Therefore, a woman must fight for her future.
Won't My Lawyer Handle Everything?
Here’s the truth: Not every lawyer has the time or inclination to hold their client's hand through each step of the divorce process. In fact, most lawyers have many cases going at the same time and often use a legal assistant to do the majority of their work.
You are the one who is ultimately responsible for the decisions made in your divorce. By getting the information you need beforehand, you can understand what your options are, gain confidence, and do what is right for you and your children. Aren't you worth it?
"Wow, like having your very own lawyer in your living room."
Just open the book look for the answers. Don't try to read it all at once, but keep it as your bible to refer back to. Very good work.
