If life has taken you down an unexpected path, you don’t have to walk it alone.
Unwrap the Secrets to Holidays after Divorce
Don’t let Divorce bring you and your children a stocking full of coal. Splitting the holidays can be as easy as pie if you communicate and use solutions to celebrate more cheer.
Incorporate Preferences – Do you love Christmas morning? Perhaps sending your kiddos to your ex-partner for Christmas Eve can allow both of you to celebrate the holidays.
Set Gift Limits – Make sure that you both agree on a gift limit per child, to make sure that opening presents is as even as possible
Do Something you’ve Always Wanted – Are you trading off years to spend with your children? Use your year to travel somewhere you’ve always wanted to go, especially if your partner held you back from exploring in the past.
Lean into your Support System – Reach out to loved ones, and make plans with people that bring you joy.
Utilize the holidays to stay connected and to make new memories. If you or someone you love is curious about divorce and how it may affect their families, please have them reach out at BarkusLaw.com.
Cristyn Kelly has been helping people make sure their wishes are met, even after they’re gone. She is an estate planning attorney, assisting with wills, trusts, special needs trusts, power of attorney and advanced directives.
She is committed to helping her clients examine their estate from all angles, to make sure that loved ones are cared for, so they can avoid lengthy probate proceedings and are able to maintain important relationships.
“After the divorce dust settles, one of the important things we have to do is create a new estate plan. New “power people” are needed in case the newly divorced person were to become incapacitated. New guardianship must be declared in the person’s will. And we need to take a hard look at how assets should be distributed if the person were to pass away.” Kelly continues, “I can help a person to protect his or her family and assets, while ensuring the things that person would do for his or her children happen, if that person is gone.” This is especially imperative for the distribution of assets on death and the guardianship of minor children if both parents were to pass.
When Cristyn is not at her firm, she loves spending time outdoors with her children, and reading fantasy fiction. She loves hiking, mountain biking and drinking coffee on her deck.
