Explaining virtual visitation for child custody cases

On Behalf of | Sep 15, 2017 | Child Custody |

A popular part of child custody cases that continues to be a major factor is virtual visitation. Virtual visitation has been around for quite some time, but it has really taken off over the past decade-plus with the invention of video conferencing software. This software can be found on computers, tablets and mobile phones.

For the most part, if you want virtual visitation as part of the child custody agreement, it will need to be added as a section or a clause. Putting this option into the agreement can make it easier for one of the parents to come to terms with the other for what is being asked.

Having more access to your children can make the whole idea of a child custody battle much easier to handle. Knowing you will be allowed to communicate on a regular basis using email, video chat, an instant messaging service, text messages or video mail helps one parent cope with not having around the clock access to one’s child.

What both parents must understand here is that virtual visitation is not meant to replace traditional visitation where parents visit with their children in person. This form of visitation is meant to supplement traditional visitation in child custody agreements. Parents can have uncensored communication with their children at almost any point during the day when they utilize virtual visitation.
