Book Review: The Separation Guide by David R. Greig

TITLE: The Separation Guide 
AUTHOR: David R. Greig 
PUBLISHER: Self-Counsel Press
PUBLICATION DATE: February 15, 2011
FORMAT: Paperback, 168 pages
GENRE: Non-fiction
ISBN: 9781770400573
This is one of the most comprehensive, ready-to-use manuals for separation and divorce for everyone, no matter their marital status or sexual orientation. Covering all the key separation and divorce topics, the author's goal is to provide money-saving tips for dealing with assets, finances, legal processes, and even post-separation life planning for common-law, same-sex, and married couples. This guide will help individuals in any process of their separation make cost-effective choices, understand their options, and take control of their lives.


Although this book is written by a Canadian family law lawyer, I find it refreshing that he urges people dealing with a marital break-up to try to resolve their issues without going to a trial. Litigation, as we know, is very costly and both parties have a much better likelihood of reaching a mutually-agreeable settlement if they are in control of the outcome. Grieg sets out the matters that separating and divorcing spouses need to discuss. If they can do so in an amicable manner, they can save time and costs by doing the legwork themselves and obtaining independent legal advice on the final agreement before it is signed.

For those that have separated and are looking for some advice and direction on how to begin the process of formulating a Separation Agreement, I would recommend this book. I found it informative, practical, and helpful.
