Have you considered the benefits of virtual visitation?

As a parent with visitation rights, you know how important it is to make the most of the time you spend with your child.

Although your relationship is sure to change after your divorce, it doesn't mean you can't be a big part of your child's life for many years to come.

Virtual visitation is becoming more and more popular in states throughout the country, with those, including Illinois, already enacting laws allowing the courts to order virtual visitation.

Here are some of the many ways that virtual visitation can benefit your relationship with your child:

  • Provides the opportunity to communicate and see your child, even if you're not in the same physical location
  • Allows you to help with homework, read a story or do a number of other things you and your child enjoy
  • Better than a phone conversation, as you can see the child's facial expressions
  • Provides access to live events, such as recitals and sports games among many others

There is no replacement for spending personal time with your child,; however, you shouldn't overlook the potential benefits of virtual visitation.

Once you understand your child custody order, you can then get a better idea if virtual visitation has the ability to strengthen your relationship.

In the event that your ex-spouse is making it difficult for you to visit with your child, you should learn more about your legal rights. As you review your custody order, you'll get a better idea of what you can and can't do, and how to make sure everyone is on the same page in the future.
