Below are web links to some great books. If you are on a budget, I recommend you make contact with an attorney who is willing to give you a free 30-minute consultation. Second, purchase some good and current books on the subject. For instance, Nolo (a legal publisher for the consumer) has excellent reasonably-priced books on the subject. Two books in particular I recommend are "Nolo's Essential Guide to Divorce" and "Divorce and Money. Other books by Nolo include "Divorce Without Court", "Divorce After 50", "Building a Parenting Agreement", How to Do Your Own Divorce in California" . . . and many others.

Besides, you can also find an attorney in your area through the State Bar of California's website.
