Working in the family law biz is especially stressful before Christmas. People have lots of urgent concerns - things that they either never thought of before or that they thought their ex would agree to. Turns out they can't agree who will have Junior this Christmas. Or, they need to get a passport to travel, and can't find their ex to sign. Or, they want to increase their child support and have extra money to pay the Christmas bills. And, everyone is more emotional this time of year. Including us - those that are supposed to be calm and professional as we help.
