In my position as a Jacksonville Family Law Attorney, I see the holidays as being a tough time for families contemplating divorce. In my experience, people will wait to file for divorce in Jacksonville until after Christmas as they usually have unrealistic expectations for the relationship during the holidays. A Jacksonville Divorce Lawyer can help couples in crisis in dividing the holiday time with the children in an agreeable and workable manner and can help reduce the stress associated with a damaged relationship during the holiday time period. These are issues I deal with in my practice as a Florida Divorce Attorney and often on a last minute basis during the holidays. To help you create a holiday schedule to keep the stress of divorce and the holidays low, contact a Florida Divorce Lawyer to help you so the holidays can be Merry and Bright for you.
