The holidays are here. This can be a stressful time of year for anyone, but it can be particularly challenging for newly-divorced parents. Not only is it tricky to adjust to new schedules and traditions, it is also difficult to figure out the financial details and obligations that come with celebrating the holidays with children after a divorce.
People often worry that a divorce will be a lengthy, bitter legal battle that brings out the worst in all parties. However, this is not how divorce has to go. In fact, divorcing spouses can and do navigate divorces peacefully and in such a way that makes it easier to focus on a better future.
Too many people make the mistake of assuming that divorce is the same process for everyone. However, no two divorces are the same. They vary based on parties' reasons for divorce, as well as family and financial situations.
