Parents Exchange Residence in Place of Kids

In over 26 years representing Family Law clients in California, I can attest to the fact that there will always be new situations I come across on a fairly regular basis. A recent idea came to mind last week when a family friend mentioned what his aunt and uncle in the Eastern United States did for their kids after divorcing. I thought the idea was a perfect example of co-parenting

The parents, Joe and Susan had a standard (non- infidelity) divorce. They found themselves arguing, bickering often and agreed divorce was the route. The family residence was not uprooted however. It was their desire to keep the kids in a structured environment, remain in their house of 8 years, and little to no problems.

Susan and Joe elected to live one week on and one week off in the residence separately, not sell it and allow the children to remain there, yet the parents would need not exchange the children. The weekly moving in and out was nothing in comparison to keeping peace within the home. The arrangement had minor effects on the kids, and keeping their daily schedule in place was much easier.

A brilliant concept, and true example of parents actually considering the children in divorce. Honestly, we could use more of this behavior in custody and visitation cases, more often.
