Noted Ontario Lawyer’s New Book on Divorce 
and the Coronavirus Hit Shelves

Russell Alexander delayed release to update the book with pandemic-related answers

LINDSAY, Ontario—Noted Ontario family lawyer Russell Alexander’s new book on divorce and the coronavirus is on sale now.

Alexander delayed publication of his second book, “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Divorce,” to update it with a special chapter, Divorce During a Pandemic, answering questions on how the current health crisis has affected divorce cases and changed the legal practice. 

“I wrote this book around the most common questions I have faced as a divorce lawyer over the last twenty years,” said Alexander. “But since the pandemic, I’ve gotten some new ones, and I wanted to make sure I answered those as well.”

The book is available to purchase online at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Apple Books, as well as through Bibliotheca, Rakuten Kobo, Tolino and Baker & Taylor. Russell Alexander Collaborative Family has also provided copies to local bookstores and mental health counselors in Ontario. 

Readers may also pick up a copy at the list price of $22.12 at the firm’s six offices throughout Ontario. All proceeds will be donated to the Giving Fund in support of various community-based programs. 

In the book, Alexander walks couples who are considering divorce through the process from their initial meeting with an attorney to the final settlement, giving advice on alternative dispute resolution as an alternative to brutal courtroom fights, among other subjects. In a special chapter on the pandemic, he answers questions about spousal support, custody and parenting handoffs that have been complicated by the health crisis. 

“Divorce is one of the most stressful experiences you can go through, even more so during a pandemic,” added Alexander. “I hope that giving straightforward advice to couples considering it, I can reduce some of that stress so that they can focus on what matters to their family.”

Alexander’s previous book, “The Path to a Successful Divorce,” became a No. 1 bestseller on Amazon. He is  a faculty member of the American Bar Association TECHSHOW and has spoken at conferences in Toronto and Chicago.
