About the Author

smart divorced moms

I'm Rachel Beck.  I'm not a lawyer or a therapist. If you want that sort of thing, there are a plethora of well-written books and sites out there. Hell, I've read a zillion of them. I'm a single mother who kicked ass in the legal system to get the child support my ex owed. I'm not anything professional or notable - the one thing I am is a 'steam roller' (direct quote per my ex's attorney).

My ex was cheating the system, cheating me, and most distressingly, cheating our child. I found out about it through sheer luck and then went on to battle him for over two and a half years. You'd think millions of dollars were at stake. They weren't. It was the difference between $500 and $1385 a month - which to any struggling single mom is a windfall. It was the difference between no financial contribution to school and such, and a court ordered 50%.

"Get Your Child Support:  My Journey Uncovering Hidden Income and Tripling My Child Support" is my story about going legal Annie to get what is rightfully my child's.  I hope to inspire you to stand up and fight for what's right.

Don't lose the fire woman warrior goddess you once were.

- Rachel

Fast Read!  Valuable Info!  I'm stuck with my divorce lawyer right now. If I knew what I was getting into I would have research more. Anyway, I picked this book up and read it over lunch. The tips helped me better manage how I work with him now. Already this week, I complied things the way Rachel recommended and have easily saved myself two emotional rambling emails - which would mean about a half an hour of time or $175 in attorney fees. I recommend reading this if you've got an attorney on retainer - you'll save money!
