Holding on through the holidays

Most parents want happy, peaceful holidays for their children. Calm nights when all is bright and all seems to be right with the world. But divorce attorneys know that it's common for many parents who are pondering divorce to keep their thoughts to themselves until after the holidays have passed.

Only in 2016 will they unwrap the news that big changes are on the way. "I have seen many situations where couples decide to get through the holidays and not disrupt this season for their children and then do the marital split in the new year," said a divorce financial analyst quoted in a recent news article.

While some might see the deception as harmful or dishonest, parents who have been through a divorce know that it's not uncommon for moms and dads to want to preserve holiday memories for their kids.

The article notes that March was declared "Divorce Month" after analyzed several years of filings. Attorneys who specialize in family law generally agree that December is a slow month, while the pace of divorces invariably picks up across the first few months of the year, peaking in late March.

One divorce lawyer quoted in the article said some of the decision-making is centered around year-end finances, when gift-buying has the highest priority. Once the shopping has been done and bills paid, attention often shifts.

For some couples determined to keep emotions and expenses down, mediation is often a viable alternative to litigation. When couples enter mediation, they can tailor their divorce agreement to fit their needs and their family's needs.
