Creating a Shared Parenting Plan for the Holiday Season
By Kelly Lynch
‘Tis the season of joy and goodwill to others, and imparting the significance of the holiday season to your children is one of the most important parts of this time of year for divorced or separated parents. Unfortunately, divorce lawyers often see the holidays become a time of unpleasantness for the parents and children who make up divorced, separated and blended families.
It is important for parents of separated families to remember to set aside their differences and embrace the opportunity to share this season’s inherent joy, because what may be considered to be just an "overnight" visit with their child to a divorced parent is a day of holiday magic for their children. This is when parents can inspire their children by showing kindness and cooperation when working to schedule holiday parenting time. It is imperative that separated parents work together during the holidays to create happy memories for everyone.
We at The Harris Law Firm are dedicated to providing families with the resources they need in order to make the holidays a happy time for all. For many people, that simply means finding the answers to their questions, a deceptively simple prospect. That’s why we put together our Family Law Resources page with information on topics including life after divorce, non-traditional couples, children and divorce among many others.
Unfortunately, having the answers isn’t always enough to work out your differences and create a healthy, happy environment. In these cases, you may need to turn to the legal system to secure a beneficial outcome and ensure the best possible situation for your family. Whether you choose to forego professional legal representation and represent yourself in court or if you choose to hire the services of a family law attorney, The Harris Law Firm is there for you.

Arkin, gives you the opportunity to speak with legal experts while still maintaining total control of your case, and if you are interested in hiring a professional, our Colorado family lawyers are ready and waiting to provide you with the expert legal representation you need.
