    It doesn’t matter if you’ve been divorced for years or this is your first Valentine’s Day after your divorce. The holiday can sting, sometimes in unexpected ways. Take steps to protect your heart from any unnecessary aches by making plans and being strategic about this particular 24 hours.

    1. Join the Crowd

    You know February 14 is coming. Don’t ignore the holiday. Face it head on. People in your office will have flowers on their desk, there will be heart decorations in every store and business window. Instead of trying to ignore the pink and red and cupids and avoid a shot to your own heart with every glimpse of Valentine’s Day celebrations, send yourself a bouquet of flowers or buy your own box of chocolate. If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. And you deserve it anyway.

    2. Avoid Social Media

    It’s tempting to fall down the social media rabbit hole any day, but this is one space that can really wreck your psyche on Valentine’s Day. Don’t hop on Instagram or Facebook or your favorite platform – just skip it for a few days until all the flowers and candy and adorableness of couples cycles through your feed.

    3. No, Really – Avoid Social Media

    If you’re someone who has been known to check up on their ex online, do not do it on Valentine’s Day. Whether you split from each other with love or disgust, being faced with images of him or her – especially if they’re with someone new or still living in your former shared home – will only mire you in sadness and unhappiness and continue to make February 14 feel like one of the darkest days of the year.

    4. And While You’re at It, Avoid Dating Apps Too

    If you don’t want to wake up on February 15 regretting what you did the night before, then let all your dating apps go dark for one day. You’ll make better decisions about who you want to engage with or meet when you’re past Valentine’s Day and have a clearer head. If you’ve been making knee-jerk decisions lately about dating that aren’t working out so well, this particular holiday could have you regretting your behavior, and that won’t help your mood after your divorce at all.

    5. Focus on Your Kids

    If you are fortunate enough to have a parenting time plan that has you with your children on Valentine’s Day, then your holiday just got a lot brighter. Focus on your kids and celebrate how much you love them on February 14, whether you make a special meal together, watch a movie, play games, or spoil them with their favorite candy and a little treat.

    6. Make a Date with Yourself

    What is your favorite thing to do? A satisfying gym session followed by takeout and Netflix binge? Online shopping and snuggling with your pet? Cooking a delicious meal and truly taking time to enjoy it? Whatever you love to do, plan to do it on Valentine’s Day after your divorce without any limitations or second-guessing. You deserve to indulge yourself.

    What makes us the right divorce attorneys for you?

    Family Law Expertise

    Most lawyers are in a general practice and do some of everything. One of our main focuses is on Family law and being expert at divorce, custody and support matters.

    We are in court daily, working with the family court judges, their staff and clerks, the Friend of the Court office, the Bar Association and other attorneys working in this area. We pride ourselves on fighting hard for our clients while working well with everyone.

    Experience

    Our extensive experience and strong relationship with the courts and our peers leads many judges and attorneys to hire us to act as Mediators in other Family Law cases. Make no mistake; having a strong working relationship with the court can have a massive impact on your case. Unlike most attorneys, we have no fear of the court room and are in trial regularly against the best in the business. We see the judges every week and maintain strong ties with their staff.
