Separating from a spouse, dividing a family, and starting over are a difficult cocktail to swallow all at one time. Stir in the Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years and the concept of divorce during holidays makes life seem even less palatable. But for the benefit of ourselves and our families, we need to push forward with light and positivity.
Last year I was in a dark place following a continuance of my divorce trial that meant I would not be divorced by the end of the year. I know many of our clients have faced the same disappointment and emotional let down when a judge puts off your divorce. This year has been much different, post-divorce, and I look forward to a holiday season with new ways of doing things.
