to help you understand the divorce
process and its terminology as
well as gather documents and
information that may be important
to your case.

guidebook. Rather, Its goal Is to
supplement and reinforce your
lawyer's legal advice and to
enhance communication between

No matter how motivated and
attentive you are, it will be nearly
impossible for you to absorb and
.retain everything your lawyer tells

book will serve as a reference tool
to help minimize your confusion,
