It’s holiday time and that means that all of the domestic relations lawyers I know are dealing with holiday custody issues. 

For those of you who may be in a frustrating situation, my only comment is to remember that all holidays, and especially Christmas, are for the children, and to keep that in mind when trying to figure out how to handle disagreements over the custody schedule during this hectic time.  Think before you speak, put the best interests of the children first, and remember that there are 365 days in each year, and that a few hours or one day here or there are not going to change your life, and especially won’t change the lives of your children.

Do your best to make this a happy, safe, peaceful holiday season.
