What are some hurdles for bird nesters?

On Behalf of | Jan 11, 2022 | Divorce

These days, more divorcing parents opt for cooperative co-parenting. This allows children the additional stability of having the support and presence of both parents in their life, no matter the marital status.

Bird nesting is but one type of co-parenting method that many cooperative parents find suitable for their families. However, it does pose some hurdles.

Financial means

Divorce Magazine discusses the benefits associated with bird nesting, but notes that this option might not work for everyone. For example, those who choose bird nesting must have the ability to secure additional housing. This is due to the basic premise of bird nesting, which involves the child remaining in the family home and co-parents taking turns living there with them.

Naturally, when they are not living in the family home, they will need a place to stay. Some choose to room temporarily with family members or friends, while others have the financial means to rent a small place. Those who do not have any additional housing options may want to look into another form of parenting.

Mutual trust

Nesting will not work if the co-parents cannot trust one another to live within the family home, too. For example, some spouses may display aggressive behavior or threaten to ruin their co-parent’s personal belongings when left in the home with only their child. If one parent does not feel like they can trust the other to remain respectful to shared property, then this option might not work.

Parents can discuss it in more detail with legal help if necessary, too. This can help paint a full picture and allow parents to make well-informed decisions.
