The Family Lawyer’s Guide to Separation and Divorce

How to Get What You Both Want


Your family lawyer in a book.

Whether you are married or living together – with children or without, if you are thinking about or are in the process of splitting up, this book is for you.

When a relationship breaks down it’s hugely stressful and emotional – and often very confusing. Who gets to keep what? Will I ever see my kids? What needs to happen and when? What if things get nasty?

This all-encompassing book, by family lawyer Laura Naser with years of experience helping couples reach the best solution possible, is here to bring calm and clarity, whatever the situation. She will guide you through the entire process from making sure this is what you really want and knowing what’s at stake, through to detailing all your options (whether you are married or not), what to do and in what order, and with a specific focus on co-parenting, managing money, social media, effective communication and how to resolve tricky issues that come up along the way.

See this book as your trusted companion and guide - everything you need to know to get through this and thrive is right here.
