You don’t need a Dallas, Texas divorce lawyer to tell you that divorce is hard for all parties involved, especially the children. From leaving the home they’ve lived in their entire lives to losing the daily presence and support of both parents, a divorce forces a lot of change upon children.
That’s why some parents nowadays opt to share bird’s nest custody of their children. A type of joint child custody, bird’s nest allows for a minimal amount of change in a child’s life after a divorce.
Essentially, in bird’s nest custody, the marital home remains the permanent home, or “nest,” for the children. Instead of one parent keeping the home and transporting the children back and forth between each parent’s home, the parents themselves rotate in and out of the nest home.
This allows the children to maintain some stability in their lives amidst the divorce. They continue to go to the same school, see the same friends, and sleep in the same bed. What’s more, they do not leave the home on weekends, holidays, or at other times when children may otherwise visit a non-custodial parent.
