Bird's Nest Custody


Definition: "Birds' nest custody" is when the children stay at one home and the parents rotate in and out according to a predetermined schedule.

Example: "One child custody option we haven't explored yet is bird's nest custody. How would you feel about the kids remaining in the marital home permanently, which each of you rotates in and out on a regular schedule?"
