Parenting after a divorce is difficult for multiple reasons. Even if you and your ex-spouse are on good terms and are ready to take the next step in responsible parenting, the details can be overwhelming. Figuring out a suitable living situation after divorce is challenging.

In order to make the living situation easier, some divorced families have chosen a “nesting” living arrangement. Nesting is unique because it involves the children staying in one living situation 100% of the time. Instead, it is the parents that do the moving in and out of the family home, much like parent birds do when they are caring for babies in a nest.

Court process

Court is only an option if you cannot go through the CSRP. The idea is to avoid court if possible since the system can get busy and backed up. The court process is much lengthier than CSRP. You may have multiple court dates.
