(Mass Appeal) – Co-parenting during the holidays can get complicated, so we invited attorney and author Gabrielle Hartley, Esq. to the studio to provide tips to help things go smoothly.

According to Hartley, it’s best to you stipulate in your divorce agreement the holiday schedule – that will hopefully minimize confusion and strife.

She adds that it’s best to consult your ex on gifts – that way you can share the financial burden and avoid duplicates.
