What is Nesting & Is it Right for You?

A rather controversial topic in the realm of family law, nesting is now becoming more popular than ever. This approach to visitation focuses more so on the wellbeing of the children rather than the conveniences of the divorcing parties. This practice dictates parents move out of the family home, allowing children to stay. Both parties then find their own places nearby, while alternating who gets to live in the family home.

People who promote nesting believe in disrupting children’s lives as little as possible. In a traditional divorce, children are expected to uproot their lives and live in separate homes. This means children have two sets of closets, bedrooms, and friends, and they leave their belongings constantly in transit. As a result, children are disconnected, resentful, and unhappy.

Nesting seeks to ensure the responsibility of divorce is purely on the parents’ shoulders, and if they can afford it, it seems to be a positive alternative to dragging children from home to home, Instead, parents should be the ones expected to accommodate themselves to a decision entirely their own. This arrangement is useful for those who are comfortable with still sharing a space with their ex, though you won’t ever be living in the same place at the same time. Additionally, it works for those with the funds to find separate living spaces as quickly as possible.
