Navigating the holidays during and post-divorce

When life becomes particularly challenging, it can be difficult to find joy in the experiences you had once cherished. For example, if you are currently going through a divorce or have recently finalized one, you may be finding it difficult to enjoy the holiday season. Even though you once took pleasure in navigating the chaos of the holidays, you may find yourself now wishing that you could curl up in bed and binge-watch television instead of pasting on a smile and making appearances at holiday celebrations.

Refining your conflict resolution style

Family law disputes tend to be uniquely personal affairs. Few things are more personal than the inner workings of any given family. As a result, it can be particularly difficult to keep your negative emotions in check as you navigate a family law dispute. The negative feelings you have as a result of your divorce, child support dispute or other matter may be so personal and so strong that they can be difficult to contain. Unfortunately, if these feelings are not properly addressed, they may manifest in ways that can damage your case.

Co-parents: It is time to prepare for the holidays

The holidays are fast approaching. Soon, your children will be let out of school for winter vacation and the season of celebration will begin in earnest. When you and your child’s other parent separated or divorced, you likely drew up some sort of parenting plan. Holiday time may or may not have been addressed in that plan. But however your child custody arrangements are structured, it is important that you and your co-parent iron out holiday details as soon as you can.

Should my alimony payments be modified?

Alimony is a complex obligation. The theory supporting alimony orders aims to ensure that each spouse is given fair access to marital income, assets and (in some cases) experience upon divorce. However, spousal support obligations are not often intended to last until each spouse perishes. Family law has moved away from a lifetime alimony obligation model in recent decades towards a model that supports each spouse’s future independent wellbeing.
