The divorce process can certainly take an emotional toll on adults going through it, but it can be just as difficult for their young children. Choosing an appropriate child custody arrangement following divorce is imperative. Here are a couple of arrangements that have worked for some divorced couples with children in New York and elsewhere.
One option is an arrangement called nesting. Here, a child will live in the family home continually, while the parents take turns staying there. The parent who is not at the family home on a given day can stay at his or her own house, or perhaps the parents could own a second residence together. This arrangement might come to an end, however, if either parent ends up re-coupling.
