THE DIVORCE HACKER’S GUIDE TO UNTYING THE KNOT, Ann E. Grant J.D

The best guide for protecting yourself through divorce now available from New World Library

Family law attorney Ann Grant presents the practical information every woman needs to protect herself as she navigates through a divorce. Feelings of loss, grief, and rage are common during divorce. But one of the most debilitating feelings experienced by women going through divorce is paralyzing impotence. Grant will help you take back your power and rights concerning finances, home, children, and work life. With compassion, insight, and tough-minded realism, she breaks down the process and provides step-by-step assessments, checklists, and inspiring stories of successful lives post-divorce. Her goal is to give you insider information that will not only make your divorce “successful” but also establish your life firmly and confidently on a positive, fresh new standing.

Ann E. Grant, JD, began her career as a corporate litigator specializing in unfair business practices and consumer fraud. After her divorce, she created her own firm, focusing on family law and a holistic approach to this life transition. She lives and practices in Manhattan Beach, California.  Check out the Divorce Hackers website and Facebook page for more information and support!

Grant

Ann Grant didn’t aspire to be a divorce lawyer. She was a partner at a large multi-national law firm, representing fortune five hundred companies, married to a corporate litigator. They had three children and life was good. Until it all came to a crashing halt. Over the next five years, Ann went through a devastating divorce that threatened her emotional health and financial stability.

Divorce is a multi-billion-dollar industry — but the system is rigged. Divorce “professionals” (lawyers, mediators, forensic accountants and therapists) bill by the hour. They financially benefit when women are indecisive and uninformed. Divorces often needlessly drag on for years, while the “professionals” line their pockets with divorcing women’s misery.

Ann had an epiphany. As she was driving down the freeway, headed to trial with the evidence she needed to “win,” she realized a fundamental truth. No one “wins” in a divorce. There are only losers. The only way to take back her sanity was to stop the madness. And she did just that.

Through the process of letting go and finding forgiveness, Ann took back her life. She found her way through the chaos by developing a personal mindfulness practice, and combined with her legal know-how, was able to create a new and better life for her and her children.

When it was finally over, she made the decision to commit her career to helping women navigate the legal minefields and outsmart the system so they can get to a new and better life with their sanity intact and their money where it belongs: in the bank. In her legal practice in Manhattan Beach, California, she helps dozens of women every year. And now, in her forthcoming book, The Divorce Hacker’s Guide to Untying the Knot (New World Library), she reveals the secrets she has learned and that the industry does not want women to know, because they provide a swift route out.

Together with financial advisors and therapists, Ann also runs workshops for women facing divorce and blogs frequently on the topic. It is the women in these workshops, and their stories, that are the inspiration for the work Ann is now doing through DivorceHacker.

Ann received her Juris Doctorate degree from the University of San Diego School of Law where she graduated cum laude, 1991. While there, she served as Editor of the San Diego Law Review. She is the former editor of The Woman Advocate Newsletter, the official publication of the Woman Advocate Committee of the Litigation Section of the American Bar Association and an adjunct professor of law at Southwestern University in Los Angeles.

The Divorce Hacker’s Guide to Untying the Knot, by Ann E. Grant

We’re thrilled to announce that Georgia Hughes, Editorial Director of New World Library has nabbed rights to The Ann E. grantDivorce Hacker’s Guide to Untying the Knot by Ann E. Grant. Divorce is a multi-billion-dollar industry — but the system is rigged.  Divorce “professionals” (lawyers, mediators, forensic accountants and therapists) bill by the hour.  They financially benefit when women are indecisive and uninformed.  Divorces often needlessly drag on for years, while the “professionals” line their pockets with divorcing women’s misery.  The Divorce Hacker’s Guide to Untying the Knot puts a stop to all that with a step-by-step guide to ending a marriage quickly and efficiently while giving women back their power.

As a litigator and a survivor of a high-conflict divorce, Ann Grant know both sides of this story — and what she knows is that divorce does not have to be drawn out, expensive or complicated.  She experienced first-hand how devastating divorce can be both emotionally and financially and she learned how not just to survive, but thrive. When it was finally over, she made the decision to commit her career to helping women navigate the legal minefields and outsmart the system so they can get to a new and better life with their sanity intact and their money where it belongs: in the bank. In her legal practice in Manhattan Beach, California, she help dozens of women every year.  And now, in DivorceHacker, she reveals the secrets she has learned and that the industry does not want women to know, because they provide a swift route out.

“If you can make a human in nine months, you can untie the knot in less time, and I will show you how to do that.” — Ann E. Grant
