The holiday season can be a challenging time for co-parenting families.

Co-parenting during the holidays presents unique challenges. It’s a time when emotions run high and scheduling conflicts can easily arise. The key to overcoming these obstacles lies in understanding your own expectations and those of your co-parent and finding a solution that respects both sets of needs.
Open and respectful communication is the cornerstone of successful co-parenting. Discuss your holiday plans well in advance and be willing to compromise where necessary. Remember, the goal is to ensure your children enjoy a joyful holiday season with both parents.
A shared holiday schedule can help minimize conflict and confusion. This might involve alternating holidays each year or splitting each holiday so your child spends part of the day with each parent. The key is to create a plan that considers your child’s needs and maintains their sense of stability and routine.
Flexibility is crucial when co-parenting during the holiday season. You may need to adjust your plans to accommodate your co-parent’s schedule or family traditions. Remember, compromise isn’t about winning or losing; it’s about finding a solution that’s in the best interest of your child.

Mr. Beck helped win my case. The case was complicated from the beginning and he helped me manage the court system and his secretary Donna always helpful and courteous.
I want to thank Roy and Sandy for their great service representing me over the years in various family legal matters (divorce and child support).
Everything went very well and made a difficult process feel more at ease.
