BOOKS

The nationwide statistics are startling. The United States has the 10th highest divorce rate in the entire world. Over 53% of all marriages in the United States end in divorce.  Perhaps the worst part is that so few people are prepared to deal with this life changing event or even know where to start.

This book is for everyone who is, has or is about to go through a divorce. Filled with meaningful advice from a front-line soldier of the divorce wars – a successful veteran divorce attorney - the book is designed to help divorcing parties and their attorneys achieve the best possible outcome in their divorce cases.

What is unique about the book is that this invaluable advice comes not from dry, solemn pronouncements or preachy sermons but rather from a multitude of actual, true, compelling stories which illustrate, in practical terms, what divorcing spouses need to know and how to avoid the critical mistakes which undermine their cases. For those who have already ridden on the matrimonial merry-go-round, these true stories also represent validation that the process of divorce can test everyone’s rationality or sanity.

Some of the areas covered in the book are when to consult with a divorce attorney; how to select the best attorney for your case; what to tell and not tell your divorce attorney; how the pandemic is affecting this process; what are the costs of divorce, both emotionally and financially; what are the key mistakes which divorcing parties need to avoid; how to move past your divorce in a healthy way. 

In the final analysis, all of the stories and advice will better prepare people for the life-altering experience that is divorce, as well as life after divorce.

Client Testimonials

Ron saved my sanity! He was my divorce attorney and necessary bulwark against an abusive and litigious husband. Since my divorce issues lasted almost as long as the Ice Age, I'm certainly qualified to evaluate and praise Ron's legal skills, patience, diligence, and delightfully irreverent wit. For those who practice family law, Ron's book provides a well-seasoned recipe for success and comes generously peppered with Ron's unique brand of salty humor!

Vicki Lutz

Former Client and Domestic Violence Expert

I am not sure how I found Ron but I am so grateful that I did. Ron's innate ability to be calm and compassionate while I was the opposite,
was a tonic. At a time when I was confused and conflicted Ron's quiet strength gave me back the confidence that my life was in fact not falling apart. I did not want a protracted, dragged out divorce. Thanks to Ron's expertise and negotiating skills, Ron delivered just that. He TOTALLY dispels the theory that once the lawyers get involve the animosity begins. 

Scott Davidson

Former Client

Can divorce be a pleasant experience?  If your attorney is Ron Bavero, the answer is unequivocally yes!! Being represented by Ron was the best decision I could have ever made. If I was concerned at the onset that Ron was too nice to be up against my now ex-husband, who is also an attorney, watching him strategize throughout my two year stint with him was like watching a professional chess championship and it became clear that Ron does not lose. Sitting next to him in a courtroom was fascinating. While not an advocate for divorce, I am a huge advocate of having Ron Bavero as your divorce attorney.  

Debra Compton

Former Client

Ron Bavero is one of the finest matrimonial attorneys I know. He is the consummate professional and an avid student of both the law and human nature. His wisdom and scintillating sense of humor shine brightly from the pages of his upcoming masterful work on the subject of divorce. 

Timothy Tippins

Colleague and Head of Matlaw

Experienced divorce attorney in Westchester County handling complex financial cases and contested custody cases. A genius at organization and knowledge of matrimonial law. Anything he writes is worth reading. 

Cynthia LaClair

Colleague

Ron is the best trial attorney I have ever seen. He was completely prepared, obviously cared, and handled himself well at every turn. He knows the law thoroughly and makes solid decisions; whether in the heat of the moment or in his prep for the case. To top it all off, he is a decent, nice guy. I cannot endorse Ron more strongly.

Sam Jensen

Former Client

I had the distinct pleasure of being represented by Ron in a prolific custody case that lasted several years. Ron is a tremendous lawyer and litigator. More importantly, he is an even better person. Ron is not only an excellent orator who commands a courtroom but he is also an extremely gifted writer with a penchant for witty prose that captures one of his greatest personality traits - a fantastic sense of humor. Despite the significant challenges involved in my case, Ron always remained positive and even keeled throughout the entire grueling process. His unwavering support, keen observations and invaluable advice (along with Mr. Tim Tippin's sage wisdom) were all critically important to our ultimate legal success. Ron is simply the best!
