Miles Mason, Sr., of the Miles Mason Family Law Group in Memphis, has written a book, The Tennessee Divorce Client’s Handbook, is a great primer for divorcing persons and for anyone who has not yet started but is contemplating divorce. As a divorce attorney, his basic advice is “think seriously before you enter into this process.” Divorce can be a nasty and potentially expensive process.
Miles’ book can’t prevent either the potential nastiness or the expense of divorce. But it can inform you of the process before you begin it or while you are in it. And while the title talks about Tennessee divorce, much, if not most, of the information will relate to your potential divorce, no matter where you live. You’ll just have to find a good lawyer where you are. This book tells you how to find him or her, as well as providing suggestions for how to work with your lawyer, once selected.
If you are a professional who deals even tangentially with divorce, like a business or real estate appraiser, a financial planner, or accountant, this concise book can give you background that will be helpful as you see aspects of divorce from your professional perspective. And this is true, regardless of what state you may live and work in.
And, hopefully not, if you are thinking about getting a divorce, get this book and read it before you act! Miles may be instrumental in changing your thinking. Two cannot live as cheaply or as well separately as they can live together — assuming they can get along!
