We understand that facing a divorce or separation or being in a vulnerable relationship can be a very lonely place. Not knowing which way to turn is a concept we, at The Family Law Company, are all too familiar with. We understand that even picking up the phone to seek help can seem daunting.

With this in mind, our lawyers have put together a list of books which they feel can provide some initial support and guidance as a starting point, if you are not quite ready to take the next step yet. These books have been read by many of our team members. We are in the process of writing reviews on each of them. This, we hope, will provide some direction for which book to read depending on the situation.

We have provided the links below in order so that the book can be purchased with ease.
