Separation / divorce how-to books?

Hi - DH and I need to separate. Married 18 years, 2 kids. I don’t really know where to start, there are loads of great threads here but I feel I need something to read that tackles the whole thing beginning to end to wrap my head around it.

Can anyone give me a recommendation?

Wikivorce is a great site... lots of information there.
I have had a look in the local library and I haven’t found much in the way of books about divorce. I did, however, purchase a DIY divorce and separation kit. I suppose you can get the same info from Wikivorce for free, but I liked to leaf through it and that, along with a couple of initial solicitor appointments, make me feel much more prepared if I decide to take that (huge!) step. Hope this helps!

There are many books on the market that will contain chapters that may not be relevant. Many solicitor websites also provide extensive info on the process, but a good place to start is the government site which takes you through each step.

Thanks both. I know it might sound a bit odd but I’m so anxious about this I feel it would really help to have a physical book to sit and work my way through. Those are still useful resources though and I’ve booked a solicitor appt to get some advice.
