Will a judge order nesting arrangement even in a highly contentious situation where the parents cannot agree on anything?

Q: I am seeking divorce after years of verbal, sexual and financial abuse. Husband wants nesting arrangement and so do kids. This would mean that I have to share residence with my abuser. Kids can see hear and understand the way he treats me and this is not the example of relationship want my kids to be exposed to. Nesting is a great idea if parents can work together but my situation is his way or the highway. Will a judge order nesting anyway because the kids want it that way? They are all teenagers.

A: The judge wouldn't necessarily order nesting merely because the kids want it. Such an arrangement is still relatively rare, and would be predicated upon - in part - the parties' ability to maintain not only the marital residence, but each having their own independent housing to go back to when not "in the nest."
