Divorce Books: New and Upcoming ReleasesMarybeth Sampsel
I always make an effort to stay up to date on the resources available to my family law clients. A large number of my clients purchase books through Amazon that help them navigate the emotional divorce process. Several books will be released over the next few months that I am particularly excited about. All of these books can be preordered through Amazon.com, so you do not have to worry about an awkward run in at the book store.
How to Be a Good Divorced Dad: Being the Best Parent You Can Be Before, During and After the Break-Up By Jeffrey Leving. Mr. Leving is one of the country’s leading father’s rights experts and has authored at least two other books aimed at men involved in the divorce process. While Mr. Leving’s previous books have been a bit aggressive at times, his newest project looks like it will provide a great deal of practical advice for the divorcing dad.
Bigger than a Bread Box By Laurel Snyder. Over the last few years, divorce and separation have become somewhat common themes in children’s books. There are a number of books specifically for the purpose of assisting parents in discussing divorce with their children.

At the center of the story is child figuring herself out in a new town, in a new living situation, and with a changed family.
The Complete Guide to Shared Parenting After Divorce: What You Need to Know to Co-Raise Your Child Successfully. There is truly nothing more critical for divorcees with children than determining how to co-parent during and after their divorce is complete. I am a huge fan of any book that encourages and assists parents in creating a healthy and successful co-parenting relationship. I encourage parents to read the book at the same time – consider it a mini-book club.
