    Christmas is a happy time of year but for families experiencing family law issues, it can be lonely, stressful and confusing. Financial strain, navigating parenting arrangements and adjusting to a new way of living can make it difficult. It is not uncommon to experience anxiety and grief during the festive season and it is important to know you are not alone.
