Bradford Publishing Announces the 8th Edition of their Popular Book, "Friendly Divorce Guidebook"


A new edition to “Friendly Divorce Guidebook: How to Do Your Own Divorce in Colorado” is now available from Bradford Publishing Co. This valuable guidebook takes a person step-by-step through every aspect of a Colorado Divorce or Legal Separation.

Denver, CO (PRWEB) October 24, 2012

Now in its eighth edition, the “Friendly Divorce Guidebook” helps people through the decision making process, the legal system, negotiations, separation, finances, paperwork, parenting plans and dealing with homes and taxes. This book is particularly useful in conjunction with mediation; however it can also be very useful for people whose attorneys are negotiating for them and who want to better understand and participate in their own settlement process. It can also be used by a spouse who is alone, where the other spouse cannot participate in the process because he or she has disappeared, is ill or otherwise unavailable.

The author, M. Arden Hauer, created a useful format for this guide, which combines a complete discussion of each topic with illustrative examples, charts, checklists, questionnaires, resources and full-size sample forms. There is a bibliography at the end, and the major technical, legal, and tax terms used in the divorce process are defined in sidebars throughout the book.

The ever-changing terrain of divorce law and procedure, and now the emergence of another domestic relationship, the Designated Beneficiary, are behind the need for what now totals eight editions in sixteen years. The main body of this work is about legal marriage, divorce, and legal separation in Colorado. Information for “partners” is set apart with a partner's icon. This edition is updated for changes in forms and procedures since 2007 through the 2012 Legislature, and federal tax changes through 2012.

The eighth edition of the “Friendly Divorce Guidebook,” explains the Colorado case management procedure, includes current IRS tax information, and describes the new domestic relationship created by the Colorado Designated Beneficiary act.

Purchasers will find instructions and a code that allows free online access to the forms needed to file for divorce in Colorado. These fillable forms are available in both PDF and Word template format.

The “Friendly Divorce Guidebook for Colorado” is also a popular reference for attorneys, mediators, and court personnel who are helping clients understand the divorce process.
