That’s why we’ve put together our selection of the five best books for starting your DIY divorce journey. All of these are currently available from Here goes!

5. Divorce: Think Financially, Not Emotionally

This book by Jeffrey A. Landers currently holds a 5-star rating on Amazon, and seeks to help women secure their financial futures before, during, and after the divorce. Landers is a certified divorce financial analyst (CDFA), and he helps women divide their stress from their finances so they can approach the divorce in a way that will best help their finances.

4. Getting Past Your Breakup: How To Turn A Devastating Loss Into the Best Thing That Ever Happened To You

While Susan J. Elliott’s book wasn’t around when I decided to file for divorce, I sure could have used it! It contains some great tips for changing your outlook and seeing the positives in a much quicker manner than simply stumbling through your recovery. Paperback and Kindle editions available.

3. Divorce & Splitting Up: Advice From A Top Divorce Lawyer

It isn’t every day that you can get some advice from a genuine lawyer for 99 cents, but if you have a Kindle, then author Marilyn Stowe is here to help. Stowe is ITV This Morning’s resident legal expert, and though her specific legal advice pertains to the UK, where she practices, there are several concepts in this book that are universal. Plus, you can’t beat that price!

2. Putting Children First: Proven Parenting Strategies For Helping Children Thrive Through Divorce

JoAnne Pedro-Carroll penned this guide to helping your children deal with the event that will probably have the most impact on their lives. If your kids are your world, then you definitely don’t want to be the reason for the problems in their lives. You owe it to them and to yourself to read this invaluable advice from a highly respected psychologist, researcher, and developer of programs for children. Also available in Paperback and on the Kindle platform.

1. The Divorce Organizer & Planner

While you can no longer take this guide as gospel when it comes to doing your own divorce — it was first published in 2004 — it is still one of the best out there for priming the divorce pump and steering you in the right legal directions. Available inside are some helpful tips and suggestions for how to pick a mediator, how to gather and organize important financial information, how to keep clear records of alimony/child support/children’s expenses, and so much more. Brette McWhorter Sember, a matrimonial attorney, is the mind behind it. Good info, and yes, it is currently available in both Kindle and Paperback editions!

If you do need help with the current forms and procedures, consider giving a try. We are up-to-date with court-approved forms, and we can walk you through the whole process of getting a DIY divorce for a fraction of the cost that a normal dissolution would run you.
