Bird's nest child custody an option for some families

35334309_S.jpgSome individuals with children may examine their options when it comes to caring for a child after a divorce. Sole custody and joint child custody are common options. For others, an emerging custody trend known as a bird's nest serves as an excellent temporary solution that reduces disruption in a child's life. Missouri individuals exploring their options may find that flying in and out of the nest works for their family's needs. 

During a divorce, the two parties usually find new housing. Finding appropriate housing may take some time, especially if the house will be sold as part of the divorce. For instance, a family may want to wait for a market rebound before selling a home in order to maximize the selling price. Perhaps the couple has not yet determined who will remain in the family home, or the pair may share a lease. 

A bird's nest arrangement allows the child to stay in the family home while the parents take turns staying for certain periods of time. When they are not in the family home, the parents have other living arrangements. This way, the child does not experience any disruption in his or her living arrangement, and it allows the parents to share the living space while they determine the next move. 

The bird's nest child custody arrangement typically works best when it is temporary and boundaries are well-defined. Not every family will want or need to utilize a bird's nest, but the arrangement could be a lifesaver for others. During a divorce, an individual must be prepared to negotiate and settle custody matters with his or her soon-to-be ex. Some in Missouri choose to enlist the help of an experienced family law attorney for more guidance in doing so.
