Is virtual visitation right for you?

Are you going through a divorce? Do you have a child with your soon to be ex-spouse?

If you answered yes to both questions, there will come a time in the near future when you begin to think about child custody.

If you don't have physical custody of your child, it goes without saying that you need to be comfortable with the visitation schedule. Along with this, you may want to learn more about the benefits of virtual visitation.

Virtual visitation is exactly what it sounds like. This is when a parent and a child visit with one another in a virtual environment, such as through the use of video chat technology.

Here are some of the many things that you can do with virtual visitation:

-- Help a child with his or her homework

-- Read a child a bedtime story

-- See how a child reacts to a specific situation, as opposed to simply hearing his or her voice

-- Witness live events, such as a football game or piano recital

There is no denying the fact that virtual visitation is full of benefits. Even so, you don't want to replace physical contact with technology. There should still be times when you spend time with your child in person.

There is no way of knowing if virtual visitation is right for you until you learn more about the pros and cons, the laws in your state and the overall approach. If you think this could improve the parent-child relationship, it's something to experiment with in the near future.
