Knowing how to handle the holidays following a divorce

For many families, preparing for the coming months may involve little more than making travel plans and purchasing gifts for loved ones. However, for parents in California who are going through the end of a marriage, figuring out how to handle the holidays can be a harrowing process. When facing divorce, parents may benefit from seeking guidance on how to safeguard the well-being of the kids and reduce the stress of the upcoming holiday season.

With the likelihood of having two separate households to plan for, figuring out how to handle visitation during the holidays can be a challenging task. When discussing holiday schedules, parents may find it advisable to be mindful of the wishes of their children while keeping them out of any disagreements. Parents may also benefit from understanding that plans can be subject to change, and a flexible mindset could prevent unnecessary conflict.

Parents may also find it beneficial to include the holidays during child custody negotiations, as this could help reduce the stress of the upcoming season. When the kids are away from the other parent, one might find it helpful to allow children to reach out and speak with him or her via telephone. Allowing the kids to stay connected to both parents, regardless of their physical location, could help them to adapt to their new situation with less difficulty.

Although the thought of entering the holiday season after a divorce can be an intimidating concept, parents may still be able to take certain measures to reduce the stress of the situation. For guidance on the challenges one might face during the holidays, a person in California could choose to consult with a family law attorney early in the process. An attorney can provide a client with advice on every aspect of dissolving a marriage, and assist him or her in pursuing the most favorable outcome possible during legal proceedings.
