Bird's nest custody is a specific form of joint custody.[1][2][3] Birds' nest custody arrangements are arrangements in which, rather than having the children go from one parent's house to the other parent's house, the parents move in and out of the house that the children constantly reside in.[1][3] The general reason for using this arrangement rather than a more commonly used arrangement is so that the burden of upheaval and moving is placed on the parents rather than the child/children.[1][3]
