Virtual visitation could help you see your child more often

If you didn't win primary custody and aren't sharing custody equally, then you may feel that you don't get enough time with your child. For many parents, this is why they feel angry. They feel left out of their children's lives and like they no longer have a say.

These parents feel like they've been victimized and penalized by not being able to see their children. There is some truth to that, but thanks to technology, its easier than ever to limit the gap between a parent and child.

What is virtual visitation?

Virtual visitation is what it sounds like. You can visit with your child virtually, over a phone, computer or even through video games. Also known as electronic or internet visitation, virtual visitation gives you more ways to stay in touch, even when you can't physically be present.

Why does virtual visitation work?

Virtual visitation helps close the gap created by divorce. If you have to move away for work and only see your child a few times a year, virtual visitation gives you a chance to stay in touch. You might choose to use a web camera and application to call one another or participate in your child's hobby of paying video games with him or her while chatting on a headset.

Virtual visitation is a normal request from noncustodial parents. It isn't there to take the place of normal visitation times, but, instead, to supplement them and help you stay in closer touch with your child at all times. Parents are generally asked to permit and even encourage virtual visits and to help make them possible. It's also normally a requirement for parents to allow the communication to be uncensored. That means the other parent shouldn't be controlling what the child can or cannot say to you.

Virtual visitation has its place in custody arrangements. If you want more time with your child, this is one option to consider.
