Taking a look at bird’s nest custody arrangements

On Behalf of | Apr 12, 2018 | Child Custody & Visitation

When it comes to the custody of children, there are a number of potential outcomes parents may anticipate. For example, a parent may worry about his or her ability to have shared custody or even visitation rights. However, there are certain unique situations as well, such as “bird’s nest” custody arrangements. A bird’s nest custody arrangement places emphasis on the child, allowing them to stay in their family home while parents alternate living in the family home and elsewhere. Depending on your circumstances, it could be a good idea to examine this option.

A bird’s nest arrangement can be beneficial for a child in different ways. Divorce can be hard, especially for someone who is young and worried about their parents splitting up. However, allowing your child to stay in the family home may help minimize stress and other negative issues that sometimes come with divorce. Children may enjoy being able to have both of their parents in their lives in the same home, albeit at different times. Instead of moving out of the family home, children may benefit from a bird’s nest arrangement by staying in the same school, maintaining their relationships with friends, and continuing to enjoy other aspects of life in the same house.

However, these arrangements are obviously not for everyone. Sometimes, they simply will not work out, but it is beneficial for parents to go over all of their options related to custody arrangements. If you head to our law office’s custody section, you will find more on child custody arrangements.
