Tips for Holiday co-parenting Success

On behalf of The Law Offices of Cindy D. Sackrin posted in Family Law on Friday, December 23, 2016.

Divorce can be challenging for the entire family and the holidays following a divorce can be particularly challenging, overwhelming and emotional. Though there are many changes to adjust to following divorce, and holidays may be among them, it is still possible to enjoy the holidays and create meaningful new traditions for the children when old traditions cannot be celebrated.

Co-parenting following a divorce can be challenging but there are tips and resources in place through the family law system that can help address concerns parents may have. Putting the children first and remaining focused on what is in their best interests can help the holiday season and overall future following a divorce proceed more smoothly. During the holidays, it may not always be possible to adhere to all the same rituals following the divorce as before the divorce but new rituals can be created and the children can be involved in the process.

Also, it should be kept in mind that important times can still be celebrated on days other than a specific date and children will like being involved in creating new traditions. It is also important to plan for holidays, birthdays and vacations in the child custody agreement which should address schedules for important dates, custody and visitation concerns. Lastly, it is important for parents to take care of themselves physically and emotionally during the holiday season and following a divorce which includes getting enough rest, eating well and exercising.

Many situations can come up related to child custody following a divorce and divorce agreement which is why the family law process is available to help parents develop a child custody plan and is also available when a child custody modification is needed. Understanding the options available in different situations can help divorced couples parent during the holidays and throughout the year.
