It can be difficult going through a family law matter during the holidays. At a time when it may seem like others have perfect families or perfect lives, the fact that you and your family are going through a difficult transition can feel awful. But in those times of sadness, here are some things to be thankful for:
- Starting new traditions - Friendsgiving or having thanksgiving on a Friday or Saturday when more friends and family may be available. You're not competing with others on Thursday and may be able to relax and enjoy a not-so-formal holiday.
- Making your own choices- couples often have to decide how to divide holidays between several houses. When it's just you, there's no pressure to rush to leave one house for another.
- Looking toward the future. While your life may be in a state of transition now, you are also on your way to creating a new path for yourself and your family in years to come.
- Your attorney. Hopefully you have an attorney you trust to guide you through this often emotional process.
