Nesting Divorce: When Co-Parents Rotate In And Out Of The Home

When you are considering a divorce, it is a reasonable question to ask whether you could stay in the same home as your ex. Co-parenting while sharing the same house is a growing trend particularly because of an increased consciousness about the impact of a divorce on the kids.

This parenting arrangement is commonly termed as “nesting” where the co-parents take turns living in the marital home so that the children do not have to move out. The non-adversarial divorce mediation process offers an opportunity to explore the possibility of nesting in a cooperative environment.

In this excellent article, Carmela DeNicola explains the advantages of nesting where this arrangement may prove to be a win-win for both parties, and more so for the kids.
