Why would a lawyer want to buy this book?
To educate staff, to give (or sell) to clients. Or to get a quick review of mediation, collaborative practice, taxes and divorce, parental rights and responsibilities, or other issues.
Why would I want my clients to read The New Hampshire Divorce Handbook?
Clients who know the basics of divorce generally make better clients. They are more likely to hear and take your legal advice. And the practical chapter, called "Working with Your Lawyer" can improve your clients' working relationship with you and your staff.
Some folks who consult me think that their choice is between a mediator and a lawyer. How can I explain that those using mediation need a lawyer as well?
A whole chapter discusses the choice of decision-making methods and uses plain language to explain the vital role of a lawyer’s advice during mediation.
I’m hiring a new associate or paralegal to work in the family law area. Could The New Hampshire Divorce Handbook help?
Yes! The Handbook is a quick plain language review of substantive areas of law, procedures (both ADR and litigation), and the emotional aspects of divorce. The appendices include a glossary, relevant websites, and list of agencies to refer divorcing clients to.
