Read on to learn more about the most common issues people face during this time of the year.

Proposals Without Prenups

The holidays are the most popular time for proposals. Getting engaged is incredibly exciting, but it is something to be taken seriously. Sometimes, people propose to their significant others without fully thinking through all of the legal aspects. For example, some people pop the question and then later decide they want to create a prenuptial agreement. It is important to take care of things beforehand so you can make sure you and your future spouse are on the same page.

Delaying Your Divorce

Some couples who wish to get divorced make the decision to stay together for the duration of the holidays. After all, you have probably heard someone say there is no perfect time to break up. This is often done in an attempt to spare the kids the stress of a divorce during the holiday season but this can put a lot of pressure on you and your spouse. If you are struggling with an impending divorce during the holiday season, know that this is a common issue.

Child Custody Questions

Sharing custody during the holidays: It can be hard to share custody over the holidays. After all, both parents often want to spend the holidays with their children. Luckily, there are various ways to split the holidays. It is just a matter of figuring out what works for you and your family.
