Child custody trend has parents migrating back and forth

Individuals facing the end of their marriage may have a new option to consider when it comes to taking care of the children. The child custody arrangement known as a bird's nest is gaining in popularity with some families, even if it is only utilized temporarily. Some families in Florida find that the arrangement can help with their child's transition after a divorce. 

During a bird's nest style of custody, the parents take turns living in a central family home while the child remains in the home full-time. At the other times, each parent has a separate residence that he or she uses while the other co-parent is in the home with the kids. This arrangement allows the children to have little disruption to their home life while the parents untangle their marriage during a divorce. 

The arrangement can also be helpful when the two parties want to wait to sell their home -- for example, if they wish to wait for a market rebound for a better price. Other times, the individuals may wish to wait out the end of a lease before moving on. Most people who use the method state that it is a temporary solution but one that can be very helpful. 

Florida families have several options when it comes to child custody. It can be difficult to decide exactly how to share the responsibility immediately during and after the divorce. Individuals who wish to negotiate the terms with a former spouse may also wish to consult with a family law attorney for more support and guidance.
