With this book, Californians can obtain an uncontested divorce without hiring an attorney. The first part of the book explains in detail how to divide property and settle custody, visitation, and child support issues. The second part is a step-by-step guide through the court process, including how to complete forms, when to file them, and how to get through a court appearance or even avoid it altogether. Tear-out copies and a CDROM of all the necessary forms are included as well.
