Divorcing at any point in the year is an emotional journey. When you figure out that you need to divorce during the holidays, those emotions might overtake you. This can be a very dangerous thing to deal with because this is a time when you need to be able to make decisions based on clear thoughts, not emotions.
We understand that the thought of having a major life change like this during the holidays isn’t anything fun to think about. We are here to help you think about the matters that are going to come up. We want you to look at how these decisions might impact you in the future instead of thinking about how you can make it through the holiday season.
There are many different emotional aspects of divorce that might creep up now. You might have to figure out what to do for the holidays, which could make you feel blue. This is especially true if you usually spent the holidays with your ex. You might feel like you don’t really have any options open now.
If you have children, you also have to deal with how the holiday split is impacting them. They might want to just have one last holiday with both parents there, but your emotions might be too raw for this. There is also the chance that you and your ex just can’t get along long enough to make this happen.
We can’t make the holidays any easier for you, but we can try to take some of the guessing out of the divorce process. We can work with you to make sure that you know what to expect so that you can plan accordingly.
