For parents going through a divorce, they have one, primary concern: their kids. They want to make the process as easy as possible on them and reduce any chance of long-lasting social or mental health issues. This is why, over the past few years, a new way to divorce has become more-and-more popular, nesting.
Nesting, which is also knowns as birdnesting, is where New Port Richey, Florida, divorcing parents maintain the family home for their kids, and the parents are the ones that move in and out. This means that their children’s lives stay the same as pre-divorce, except they only have one parent at a time.
A soft transition
Nesting allows for a soft transition through the divorce and post-divorce for the kids. It allows the kids to maintain their life and deal with the divorce in their own way and on their own time, without also dealing with two new homes, traveling between those homes and the destruction of their former lives. When it is combined with family or child counseling, the negative affects of a divorce on children can be largely mitigated.
In addition to the psychological advantages for your New Port Richey, Florida, children, nesting can also provide parents a cheaper divorce process as well. For one, the divorcing spouses do not have to spend anything else on their children because they already have what they need. Plus, they can still split the home cost, and they can, if they are amicable enough, share an apartment when they are not parenting. This can add additional cost savings. And, even if the nesting is for a relatively short period of time, that time can be used to save up for each spouse’s post-divorce single life.
