CHICAGO, January 3, 2018 — Most people head straight into divorce without preparing themselves for the potentially rough journey that lies ahead. No matter the reason for the split, all participants need guidance and useful information.

The new ABA release “Money and Divorce: The Essential Roadmap to Mastering Financial Decisions” provides a comprehensive and practical guide to those contemplating or going through divorce, and to attorneys engaged in the process. The book helps make informed and intelligent choices concerning the financial issues inherent in transitioning from one household into two, including illustrating how to set goals, navigate the legal process and protect against unforeseen events. This book is a valuable resource to help readers accomplish their goals with dignity, confidence and a sense of security.

Author Lili A. Vasileff has worked with thousands of couples and individuals on financial planning before, during and after divorce, as well as on mediation, collaborative divorce, financial forensics, expert testimony in court, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements and wealth management. Because every divorce is unique, expert guidance can often be the ace needed to effectively manage the settlement process and guarantee not just financial survival, but also success.
