Is virtual visitation the answer to your problems?

In today's day and age, technology is changing the way people live. Virtual visitation, for example, is when a parent uses advanced technology, such as video conferencing, to communicate with a child.

In some states, including Florida, courts are now in position to order virtual visitation in regards to child custody matters. While there is no replacement for personal interaction in a face-to-face environment, there are several benefits associated with virtual visitation:

-- The ability for a parent to stay in touch with a child even when he or she lives far away, such as in another state or country.

-- The opportunity to communicate more regularly with a child, such as by reading him or her a bedtime story every night.

-- The ability for both parties to see one another, as opposed to communicating solely via phone calls, text messages and emails.

-- The chance to witness live events, such as a music recital or sporting event.

Technology continues to change the world for the better, and we're now beginning to see this with a growing number of child custody cases.

Divorce is never easy, especially when a parent realizes that he or she will no longer be able to spend as much time with a child. Virtual visitation is not the answer to every child custody challenge, but it can go a long way in making life easier on all parties involved.

If you've gone through the divorce process, if you think that virtual visitation could work in your favor, don't hesitate to learn more. This may be one of the better ways to strengthen the relationship with your child.
