It’s the most wonderful time of the year…or is it?

Child Arrangements at Christmas

Christmas is a time for families to come together. If however, you have recently separated; then Christmas can of course become a minefield in terms of arrangements regarding the children.

Both parents understandably wish to spend time with their children at this most special time of the year. Leaving the planning of arrangements for Christmas until the last minute can cause unnecessary distress to all involved.

It is of course preferable for both parents to communicate at an early stage and well in advance of the festive period to reach an agreement that works well for all involved, particularly the children.

In certain situations it can be difficult for parties to communicate, agreements cannot be reached, compromise is off the table and families are left at an impasse. If you find yourself in a situation like this then we recommend taking legal advice as soon as possible.
