Get Your Consultation Now

The holidays are a wonderful time, but they can be difficult when it comes to family. It is important to know that if you are struggling this holiday season, you are not alone, and there are resources to turn to, our law firm included. Read on to learn more about the top 5 issues families face during the holiday season.

Prenups and Proposals

The holiday season is one of the most popular times for proposals. You will likely see a plethora of Christmas and New Year’s Eve proposals. But, if you want to sign a prenuptial agreement, it can put a damper on things. How do you ensure you and your spouse create and sign a prenuptial agreement while still maintaining the magic of a holiday engagement? While you may be tempted to rush into your proposal, it is important to do your legal research first.

Delaying a Divorce

Many couples who wish to get divorced stay together through the holidays for the sake of their families. This can be incredibly difficult and take an emotional toll. Make sure you take care of your mental health and turn to your support system during this time.

Christmas Custody

If you and your ex-spouse are divorced, it can be difficult to share custody over the holidays. The holidays are a time to spend with family, and parents often want to spend every moment with their children. For this reason, shared custody can become an issue.

Changing Custody

Because sharing custody is so troublesome during the holidays, you and your ex-spouse may wish to modify your custody agreement. For example, if you have decided to take the “every other year” approach to spending holidays with the kids, and you decide that the agreement no longer works, you may wish to change your current arrangement. This can be difficult to do last-minute, causing further stress.

Family Face-to-Face

Who has visitation rights when it comes to your kids? How do you navigate the family-aspect of the holidays if you share custody? Many people wonder if grandparents have visitation rights, and this issue comes up often around the holidays.
