Splitting the Holidays

Go on, sing it with us… “it’s the most wonderful time of the year…” It’s the most cherished of all divorce traditions, that special time when you sit down and ask: how do you split the holidays?

Let’s get this out of the way early: if you have kids involved, splitting holidays is not easy. We’re not just talking about the winter holidays, mind you. What about winter break… Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Easter, birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, summer break, Thanksgiving, three-day weekends, teacher planning days, Jewish Holidays, Non-Hallmark holidays, and believe it or not, the list goes on from there!

Luckily, after you wrap your head around the sheer number of days to calculate, you can rest easy in the comfort of the one person in your corner who can help you with all that holiday math: your lawyer. That’s right, your lawyer has likely been through this many, many times and has seen every possible permutation of the holiday split and with a little patience, can get you scheduling like a pro.
