“Splitting Up Together,” a new TV show that recently premiered on ABC, examines current trends in divorce and separation that affect modern parents. The show stars actress Jenna Fischer, formerly of “The Office,” and Oliver Hudson who plays her husband. In the pilot episode of “Splitting Up Together,” the audience learns that the couple is separated and figuring out how to comfortably interact as a defunct couple who still parent their children together. Trends like bird-nesting, which means that a couple and their children maintain a family home where parents alternate living with the children on their own, is an example of a topic brought up on the show.
Divorce and separation arrangements continue to evolve to encompass the diverse needs individual families require when a relationship or marriage ends. What is right for one family may not work for another, but luckily, choices can be made if both parties agree to the terms with the help of a knowledgeable and compassionate family lawyer. Remember that a separation agreement will protect each party’s assets and rights and drawing up a child custody arrangement will ensure that the children are protected, too.
