Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Divorce

Including Divorce During a Pandemic

Russell Alexander’s Guide to Separation, Divorce and Family Law


“Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Divorce developed guidelines – with the
help of social workers – on how to keep an already stressed relationship intact. The book
touches on options for divorce, alternative dispute mechanisms and collaborative
practices including collaborative divorce.”

The Law Times

“Reading the pandemic chapter alone provides invaluable information
for anyone considering a divorce.”

-The Toronto Star

In his second book, Russell Alexander answers the questions he’s heard the most from clients
about divorce — especially in recent months.

In the forthcoming “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Divorce,” the longtime
divorce attorney gives a comprehensive overview of everything you need to know about divorce,
from the basics of choosing a law firm to alternatives of going to court, to the legal process itself.

When he first sat down to write this book, the pandemic had not yet hit North America. Since
then, the way that clients, lawyers, and judges interact has changed dramatically, while families
working through divorce and custody issues have faced new questions and concerns. The law has
not yet caught up to these changes, and some may prove to be only temporary. But it’s clear that
the pandemic will affect divorce, just as it’s already affected everything from handshakes to air

In response, the book includes a special bonus chapter answering new questions raised by the
pandemic from how to handle custody during a quarantine, to how court operations have
changed to how to work with your attorney remotely.

Alexander’s first book, “The Path to a Successful Divorce,” a No. 1 bestseller on Amazon,
discussed alternatives to divorce court, a specialty of his family law firm.

As in that book, Alexander discusses options such as alternative dispute resolution, four-way
settlement meetings and collaborative practice, which his experience has shown to be less
contentious and less stressful ways for a couple to make tough decisions on mutually-owned
property, custody arrangements, alimony and child support.

Divorce is never easy. Divorce during a pandemic is even harder. But Alexander’s new book can
help families make the decisions that will leave them on solid ground, emotionally, physically
and financially.
