“You can waste vast amounts of money by hiring the wrong lawyer while engaging in a high conflict divorce. Newman shows people the playbook and provides real tactics for breaking up in a more humane fashion.” —Alec Baldwin, actor, producer, New York Times bestselling author

“Jacqueline Newman brings the D-word into the light, where everything is always less scary. This book will spare you pain, save you money, and some sanity. It’s like getting a private consult with a top divorce lawyer for less than a bottle of rosé.” —Nora McInerny, author of No Happy Endings

“The divorce process can be overwhelming, but Jacqueline’s practical and wise guide will help readers know what to expect and avoid wasting their time and money. A must-read.” —Sara Stanich, CEO of Cultivating Wealth

The definitive guide to navigating divorce in today’s world from one of America’s top matrimonial lawyers.

Just as the entire landscape of marriage and family has evolved, so too has divorce.

Gay marriage has led to unconventional custody battles. Couples are having children outside of marriage. Women are the breadwinners. There’s an influx of middlemen serving as divorce doulas. And with nearly half of all marriages ending in divorce, the stigma has essentially diminished.

Jacqueline Newman, one of the country’s top divorce lawyers, has seen it all—from a couple fighting over iguana custody to prenuptial agreements featuring cryptocurrency—nothing shocks her. And if she’s learned one thing from all this experience, it’s this: protect yourself and worry about being nice later.

Newman delivers the truth in a calm, therapeutic voice and is on your side both emotionally and in the courtroom. Drawing on more than twenty years of experience handling complex, high-stakes matrimonial cases and citing the latest research, Newman shatters old myths and provides an insider’s toolkit for a humane, economical, and savvy way to end a marriage.
