Building on the lessons from the 'Christmas Truce'

With this being our first post of the New Year, we hope all of our readers have a happy and prosperous 2015. January is the month where people traditionally make resolutions, and this year is not likely to be different. So don’t be surprised if you are bombarded with commercials from fitness centers and weight loss organizations trying to get you to turn a new leaf and solicit their services.

As family law attorneys we hope that people in troublesome co-parenting relationships take the time to embrace resolutions as well. After all, we discussed in our last post the benefit forging a truce during the holiday season to make the holidays easy for children. There’s no sense in throwing away the truce once the New Year starts. In fact, this should be an opportunity to build on it. With that said, we invite our readers to make having a better co-parenting relationship with their ex-spouses or significant other a New Year’s resolution. 

Indeed, keeping such a resolution may not be easy, especially if your ex is arrogant, disrespectful and downright difficult to work with. However, if you had some success in forging a truce during the holidays, you already have the foundation that you need in order to keep this resolution. Additionally, you have to understand that maintaining such a promise may be a day-to-day endeavor; meaning that everyday will not be like a 70’s sitcom where everything works out in a half-hour. It may take mediation, counseling sessions and even court intervention to make it work.
