Many different family law issues can wreak havoc during the holidays, from deciding to end a marriage to custody disputes and unpaid child support. At the Law Offices of Beverly L. Brennan, we are very familiar with some of the emotional strains that families face while working through various types of family law matters. During the holidays, you may have to take a closer look at how you handle family law topics for a variety of reasons, especially if you will be spending time with other family members or have children with your spouse.
At family functions, questions may arise as a result of family law issues you are going through. For example, your relatives may wonder why your spouse is not present or you may have to talk about your decision to split up with your marital partner. If you have kids, they may need even more communication during holidays and it is crucial for you to do what you can to reduce the emotional impact of your divorce for the sake of your children. Moreover, you may have to deal with other stressors during this time, such as back child support that prevents you from celebrating the holiday as you were planning.
From Independence Day to other major holidays, you may be even more stressed out about these difficulties. However, you should try to carefully work through challenges and not let them interfere with your celebrations.
