HOLIDAZE
Holidays can be trying times for any person, whether involved in a divorce or not. Divorce or other family problems can certainly amplify anxiety and depression. Be aware this is normal and take good care of yourself. Check out a couple of Mark's blogs on the subject:
PARENTING EDUCATION:
Family Affairs presents, Parents are Forever, a completely online program developed by the University of Minnesota Extension Service for parents going through divorce.  This program has a nominal cost and may be accessed at www.parentsforever.org.

FAMILY MATTERS:
Conley, 15, is well into the beginning of her freshman year in varsity basketball and her team is doing very well.  Carly is enjoying her Freshman year at Ole Miss and Casey is making her way through her Freshman year at the University Medical School.

HOLIDAY CLOSING:
Our firm will be working holiday shifts for most of December and will be officially closed from noon on December 20 until 8:30 a.m. on January 2. As always, office hours bear no significance to our service and we are available at all times to our clients through cell phone, text and email.  Our cell phones are below.  Contact us any time you need us!

ABOUT THE TEAM:
Chad has been accepted to the MC Law Study Abroad Program for International Human Rights. He will travel to Merida, Mexico December 26, 2013 and return January 8, 2013.  This class will also include legal and governmental visits to the Judicial Tribunal Center, the Yucatan State Legislature and cutural tours to Chichen Itza and Uxmal.
 
RECEPTION:
As we say every month, our firm believes in what we call “Ritz Carlton Service.” We have invested in a telephone system which allows access to all of our team members and allows for voice mail messages. If you call and wish to speak to a particular person and they are unavailable, you may either leave a voice mail or ask to speak with someone else. Listed below are our extension numbers. We also want our clients to be able to contact us after hours about emergency matters, so our cell phone numbers are also listed below.
