Helping children gain stability after a divorce

Some parents in Florida who are getting a divorce may have heard of the practice of nesting, or birdnesting, in which parents rotate in and out of the family home while the children continue living there. The idea behind it is that it gives children the stability to adjust to divorce, and experts say it often works. However, there are a few caveats.

Can I see my baby again after an adoption?

The decision to place a child for adoption is extremely personal and emotional, even if you believe it is in the child’s best interest. It is natural for birth mothers to worry about their child or wonder if they will be able to see them again.

How do you prepare to meet a prospective birth mother?

Domestic adoptions often take the stance of an “open” relationship between the birth mother and adoptive family, with the biological mother choosing the parents who will raise her child. As you begin the process of preparing to welcome a child into your home, you may try to put yourself in a prospective birth mother’s shoes: what would she want to know about the people to whom she’s entrusting her child?

Situations in which there may be temporary child custody orders

When parents in Florida are going through a divorce, temporary child custody orders might be put in place until the separation is final. At that time, the temporary orders could be made permanent. The court may take other factors into account and even ask the child for input. However, the general inclination of the court is to try to avoid disrupting the child's living arrangement.
