In the midst of a divorce finding joy in the holiday season can be difficult.
However, do not allow this phase of your life taint this time for you.
Let Friedman & Friedman handle your divorce proceedings while you
take care of preserving the holiday spirit — especially if you have children.
As holiday lists are being prepared, we'd like to share a list we put
together that will help make your holiday stress-free:
Arrange Pick-up/Drop-off Schedule: Even if a judge hasn't ruled on your case yet you and your ex should
decide on a suitable schedule weeks prior to the holidays so you can each
plan accordingly. Regardless of how you and your ex feel about each other,
the holidays should remain a happy time for your children.
Set a Good Example: This is a great opportunity to show your children how to make the best
of any situation. Remember, your children are perceptive so be a leader
and guide them through life's challenges.
Engage in Conversation: If your children have "mom and dad getting back together" on
their gift list – don't get upset or knock their dream down.
In fact, don't downplay any questions they have during this unsettling
time in their lives. Sit down and engage in a conversation. Let them know
that while you and your ex have chosen to live a part they are still the
number one priority in your life and you will always be there for them.
If You Can't be Friends, Be Friendly: While reasons leading to divorce can be hurtful, stressful and overwhelming
it is your job to continue to make your children feel safe, happy and
thrive in a warm environment. Be cordial to each other.
Friedman & Friedman wish you and your family a very peaceful, happy
