Despite parents’ best efforts, children of divorce often feel a significant amount of stress during and immediately after the divorce process. Typically, when two parents divorce, one parent is the “main” caregiver that the child resides with the majority of the time and the other parent is granted specific parenting time, though this can be problematic for the child. In an effort to make this life transition easier for children, something called a “nesting” arrangement has been becoming more popular for families of divorce.
In a nesting arrangement, both parents move out of the family home into separate living spaces. The children remain in the family home, and each parent comes and goes according to the parenting time schedule. Some parents share the separate living space as neither will be there at the same time, and some parents get different living spaces altogether.
