HE HAD IT COMING:

How to Outsmart Your Husband and Win Your Divorce

Stacy Schneider, Esq.
 

Women are used to getting the short end of the stick in divorce…until now. Wives no longer have to be doormats or get bullied into taking less than they deserve. For the first time, a trial lawyer helps them to stand up, take control, and fight for their fair share.
From her experience as an ex-wife and a former divorce attorney, author Stacy Schneider, Esq., knows what every smart woman must do before saying “I Don’t.”  In He Had It Coming: How to Outsmart Your Husband and Win Your Divorce (Simon Spotlight Entertainment, an Imprint of Simon & Schuster; January 22, 2008; ISBN-13: 978-1-4169-4935-0; ISBN-10: 1-4169-4935-6; $14.95; Trade Paperback Original), Stacy presents a divorce road map to help women confidently navigate the legal process and successfully shape the financial course of their future.
Husbands tend to have the advantage when a marriage dissolves, because wives typically have smaller paychecks, restricted control over family finances, and weaker negotiating skills.  “So,” Schneider stresses, “women need to be as strategic as possible when planning their divorces.”  To give wives a fighting edge, she shares insider tactics, techniques, and legal maneuvers divorce attorneys use to gain the upper hand.  Schneider also arms every woman with crucial information to protect herself, emotionally and financially, and prepare to survive even the nastiest battles.             

Packed with checklists, tips, practice dialogues, and examples from real-life cases, He Had It
Coming shows women how to plan ahead for a successful divorce.  Among an arsenal of smart moves
and strategic secrets, Schneider offers:

  • Her one-of-a-kind “Pre-Divorce Plan”, guaranteed to establish a woman’s financial independence six months before she begins to exit her marriage;
  • Stealth search tactics for uncovering a husband’s hidden stashes of cash, property, and other valuables;
  • Eight essential steps every woman should take to cover her assets as soon as the divorce begins.  (#1. Freeze all joint bank accounts!);
  • Advice on what a wife should and shouldn’t do to keep her claim to health insurance coverage;
  • How to keep living in her marital house after ditching her spouse;
  • A beginner’s guide to do-it-yourself property division—how a divorcing woman can save big on legal fees by persuading her husband to work together;
  • Pointers on handling legal paperwork without hiring a lawyer—and how to know when a trial is necessary;
  • Surefire ways to capitalize on a husband’s infidelity and receive an “affair” settlement;
  • Five winning negotiation tactics—and simple exercises to prevent a woman’s emotions from weakening her bargaining power;
  • Seven things every woman should do before signing her divorce papers.  (#2.  Get a written decision on who is responsible for debt and tax liabilities.)

                                  
With He Had It Coming in her corner, every woman can get the most from her divorce and achieve emotional and financial stability to start her new life.
