Looking toward the holidays after a Colorado divorce is final

The 2013 holiday season is over, and so are many Colorado couples' marriages. Getting a divorce and starting over may be a New Year's resolution, but in just 11 months, people will be gearing up for the 2014 holiday season. Still, within the aftermath of the holidays, many people may be wondering how they will get through their first holiday alone.

A lot can happen in 11 months, and most divorces can be finalized within that time. Numerous items can be divided during a divorce, and custody arrangements can be made for the children, but friends are not so easily divided. It may be necessary for each spouse to make at least some new friends and new holiday traditions.

When it comes to children, both parents need the opportunity to spend quality time with them during the holidays. When negotiating a custody agreement during the divorce process, outlining how the holiday season will be scheduled could avoid confrontations during the holidays and allow each parent time to plan. It may even be possible for each parent to have some time to get away while the other parent has the children.

It may seem a bit impractical to begin planning for the holidays in January, but during the divorce process could be the perfect time for Colorado parents to begin planning. A well-planned-out custody agreement can make the first holiday season after the divorce less daunting -- not only for the parents, but also for the children. If everyone knows what will happen and when, ahead of time, the holiday season can be joyous for everyone.
