Attorney David Crum spent years as a “divorce assassin,” an attorney who wins for his clients at all costs, regardless of the consequences. In the world of divorce, these lawyers learn to utilize the court system to their advantage, how to delay or speed up a case, how to get the best performance from their clients, and how to get the best results.

|Divorced from Reality: Rethinking Family Dispute Resolution (Families, Law, and Society)
Lowest new price: $36.17
Lowest used price: $17.75
List price: $45.00
Author: Jane C. Murphy
Over the past thirty years, there has been a dramatic shift in the way the legal system approaches and resolves family disputes. Traditionally, family law dispute resolution was based on an “adversary” system: two parties and their advocates stood before a judge who determined which party was at fault in a divorce and who would be awarded the rights in a custody dispute. Now, many family courts are opting for a “problem-solving” model in which courts attempt to resolve both legal and non-legal issues.
At the same time, American families have changed dramatically. Divorce rates have leveled off and begun to drop, while the number of children born and raised outside of marriage has increased sharply. Fathers are more likely to seek an active role in their children’s lives. While this enhanced paternal involvement benefits children, it also increases the likelihood of disputes between parents. As a result, the families who seek legal dispute resolution have become more diverse and their legal situations more complex.
In Divorced from Reality, Jane C. Murphy and Jana B. Singer argue that the current "problem solving" model fails to address the realities of today's families. The authors suggest that while today’s dispute resolution regime may represent an improvement over its more adversary predecessor, it is built largely around the model of a divorcing nuclear family with lawyers representing all parties—a model that fits poorly with the realities of today's disputing families. To serve the families it is meant to help, the legal system must adapt and reshape itself.

|Lifestyle Analysis in Divorce Cases: Investigating Spending and Finding Hidden Income and Assets
Lowest new price: $105.15
Lowest used price: $105.15
List price: $129.95
Author: Tracy Coenen
With cases often involving complex financial matters, a financial expert or forensic accountant can play an integral part in a divorce case. One of the most important tools they can use is a lifestyle analysis, a component being employed in an increasing number of divorces. As described in Lifestyle Analysis in Divorce Cases, this analysis is the process of tabulating and analyzing the income and expenses of the parties, and to confirm or refute income claims made by the spouse. A lifestyle analysis is then used to determine the standard of living of the parties, which will influence important support calculations and often property division, and help form the basis for calculating the level of support necessary for the spouse to maintain a similar lifestyle after divorce. Additionally, lifestyle analysis can uncover hidden sources of income and be used to evaluate the finances of each party in a prenuptial agreement.
Author Tracy Coenen discusses these subjects in a manner that is logical and easy to understand, bringing clarity to a topic that can be confusing for attorneys, judges, and juries who often lack an accounting or finance background. The book begins with the critical factors to use in analyzing a couple's standard of living, followed by a discussion about the various types of income and why they should be either included or excluded from calculations in a family law case.
To help an attorney determine whether a lifestyle analysis is necessary for a particular case, the author discusses the numerous red flags that may indicate hidden income or assets or other financial irregularities, including sources for obtaining information, the documents needed for a lifestyle analysis and a strategy for gathering and managing these documents, and discovery from the perspective of the financial expert. Additional chapters focus on key elements included in a lifestyle analysis, including:
- Analyzing historical spending
- Locating hidden assets
- Business lifestyle analysis
- Reporting and testifying
Appendices include a financial discovery checklist, sample Form 1040 and Schedule A, and a sample net worth analysis.
