Easing the News of Divorce during the Holiday Season

The holidays are an exciting time of the year. It takes a lot of planning, cooking, and present buying in order to prepare for a special week at the end of December. However much you might like the holiday as an adult, the chances are that your kids like it immeasurably more.

The truth is many parents who are contemplating divorce wait until after the holidays. For a time of the year that means spending more time with more family, it is often easier for parents to suffer through the holidays for the sake of their children. The New Year might be an easier time to broach the subject with children.

The holidays can also be a time of reflection. Hopefully while you listen to Christmas music and watch your children open Christmas presents, you can think about your big decision. If you feel you have exhausted every option and that there is no better option than divorce, then there are a few things to protect your future through the holidays.

The holiday season can lend itself to overspending.  Be careful about setting a budget with your spouse, especially if you have joint credit cards.  The division of property during a divorce is the same for debts as it is for assets.  Being on a budget now might be easier down the line.
