Should You Wait Until the New Year to File for Divorce?

Deciding to wait or start the divorce process around the New Year is a decision only you can make. If you need some guidance, reach out to someone who is a divorce professional. They can help you see the pros and cons of your timing around the holidays.

Here are some thoughts to consider when making your decision:

Are there reasons to stay in your marriage?

If unsure, use the holiday season to delve deeper into your feelings. If facing another holiday is unbearable, assess its reasons and decide if a separation is best.

Will it be too stressful?

Evaluate whether asking for a holiday divorce will escalate or alleviate stress and arguments at home.

Will the timing impact your child?

Remember, your children’s well-being should be a top priority. Introducing the topic of divorce during the holidays can be emotionally overwhelming for them.

Are you and your children in a toxic or harmful environment?

If you are in a toxic or unsafe environment, it is important to seek a safer environment quickly.

Are you looking for an amicable solution?

Opting for a collaborative divorce can be a more amicable alternative to court-litigated divorce. This approach encourages open communication, cooperation, and mutual decision-making, fostering a healthier resolution for you and your family, including your children.

Collaborative divorce professionals can guide you and your spouse through the process of helping you reach agreements on key issues. This approach minimizes conflict, making it a more constructive choice for couples seeking a smoother transition and helps with co-parenting.
