A Children’s Holiday Message

Whether you are going through a divorce and custody battle, or were never married and just a custody case; or you have sole custody, or joint custody, or shared custody, or parenting time or visitation; remember, the holidays are upon us:

Put your bitterness and hatred for each other aside so that your children can have a Thanksgiving to be thankful for. Put your bitterness and hatred for each other aside so that your children can have a Happy Chanukah. Put your bitterness and hatred for each other aside so that your children can have a Merry Christmas. Put your bitterness and hatred for each other aside so that your children can have a Happy New Year.

Make sure your holiday schedule is fully complied with unless otherwise agreed to in writing to ensure your children are happy and enjoy the holidays as they should. Make sure your holiday schedule is fully complied with unless otherwise agreed to in writing to avoid holidays costing more in legal fees than for gifts and celebrating. Make sure your holiday schedule is fully complied with unless otherwise agreed to avoid spending more time in court than necessary.

Make the true sacrifice of love for your children and put them first, and do not hide behind putting them first with excuses when it is just for yourself or to spite the other parent.
