When the Fourth of July rolls around, many people look forward to family functions and firework displays. However, if you are in the middle of a divorce, this time of year can be particularly challenging for different reasons. At Kajko, Weisman & Colasanti, our firm understands the various ways that divorce can generate stress during the holiday for families across Massachusetts.
Divorce and family law matters (such as child support, custody, alimony and other issues) can make it harder for people to enjoy themselves during Independence Day. However, they can be difficult for other reasons. For example, children may feel stressed out and parents may worry about their divorce affecting kids. Or, questions may arise at a family party. For example, relatives may ask why a person’s spouse is not attending the party or why they decided to split up.
Fortunately, there are things that people can do to make divorce easier during July Fourth and other holidays. For example, parents can discuss their divorce and answer and questions their child has well before the holiday and any family get-togethers. Also, people can take a close look at any information related to their case to prepare themselves for any matters that may arise and find a bit of peace of mind.
You may have a sense of anxiety with regard to divorce, but you can alleviate worries by planning ahead and carefully addressing any issues that arise. If you visit our divorce section, you can read more about various family law matters, such as the division of property and alimony.
