3 Tips for Handling Holidays After a Divorce Roswell, GA
Divorce Family Law

The holiday season is meant to be one of joy and celebration. Navigating Thanksgiving and Christmas can be challenging after a divorce. If this is your first divorce, you may discover situations, circumstances and emotions you may not expect. Here are three tips to help you handle the holidays after a divorce.

Prepare for Complex Emotions from Your Children

The change in family dynamics after a divorce can give rise to complex emotions in your children. Family get-togethers are now split in two and younger children may not understand what is going on. Each one of your children may experience a different reaction. Give your children a safe space to express feelings of anger and sadness. This can help them process and heal from the difficult changes.

Establish Cordial Co-Parenting Plans

Navigating holiday plans with your ex-spouse can be made easier by establishing cordial interactions and boundaries. Ask about any extended family plans ahead of time so you can co-parent in a healthy way. If you are unable to agree on how to split holiday time, you may want to consult with a mediator or experienced divorce attorney.

Create New Holiday Traditions

Before the divorce, you may have established holiday traditions with your children and your spouse. You may no longer be able to spend that time together with the breakup. To help you and your children move forward, you may want to consider creating new holiday traditions. Not only does this help continue making positive memories, you are also showing your children how to move forward in creating a new life. You can also create a new twist on old traditions to give your children something exciting to look forward to and relax.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

GAAW Wright

Tom has been our attorney for many years. He has been with us through thick and thin. He has successfully handled all our queries and cases with patience and understanding. We highly recommend Tom!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
