How “Nesting” can help your kids through your divorce

Divorce can be traumatic for children, so many parents seek to minimize the effects the separation will have on their kids. One of the latest strategies parents are using to manage the difficult transition during a divorce is called nesting.

“Nesting keeps the children in the home and the parents alternate moving in and out, depending on the custody agreement. Instead of giving the children two houses, the nesting process allows the children, their toys, and material things to remain stable and predictable. Thus, the grown-ups must adapt,” says board certified marital and family law attorney, Charles D. Jamieson.

The nesting process can make this major life transition easier for everyone in the family, as it serves as a short-term bridge between family pre and post separation, upholding family rights, and defending against injustices.
