Parents in Texas who are going through a divorce and choose what is sometimes called "birdnesting" or "nesting" as a child custody arrangement might wonder how long they should keep the schedule in place. Nesting refers to when the children live full time in the family home while their parents take turns staying with them there. The rest of the time, parents live elsewhere, usually in a shared apartment. Most experts say this setup should not last more than three to six months.
Texas couples who are going through a divorce may be able to avoid financial errors if they are aware of some of the most common ones. For example, some people may be tempted to spend a lot of money just after the divorce, but they may regret this when the bills are due.
