The way that people divorce has radically changed in the past few decades, especially for those with children. Gone are the days when a mother automatically received primary custody of the children and the father received one night a week and every other weekend for visitation.
These days, many couples want to continue to share parenting responsibilities despite the divorce. They each want to remain as involved as possible and recognize that their children need both of them to thrive. This has led to more couples sharing custody than ever before. In fact, this concept continues to evolve, and you may decide that a relatively new, and some would say radical, way to share custody would work best for your children -- bird nesting.
