Events over the holiday season are stressful enough without bringing family law matters into them. In fact, trying to bring up points about these matters might make family members very uncomfortable and could ruin the holiday season. Even if it is difficult, it might be best to keep your thoughts and concerns quiet until after the holiday season.
We realize that you might need to vent about the things that are going on, but a family dinner might not be the best place. This is especially true if the issue is that you are contemplating divorce. If your spouse is with you at the family dinner, speaking about the possibility of divorce with someone could end up making everyone miserable during a time that should be filled with fond memories.
If you have children, you also have to think about how all of this might impact the kids. They might not want to have to deal with such sensitive matters during what should be a fun day. In fact, your children might not want to know about all of the specifics of the situation, so be careful of what you are sharing and with whom as you gather together with loved ones.
Ultimately, you have to decide what is the best course of action in your case. This is something that might prove to be difficult to determine. We can help you figure out how to plan for the family law case so that you are better prepared. Doing this now might help you keep the peace as you spend time with your family members during the upcoming holidays.
