What Are My Options Regarding Frequent Visitation In My California Child Custody Case When I live Far Away From My Children?
With the growth of technology in recent years some courts have ordered or otherwise encourage visitation on the computer, known as “virtual Visitation” in situations where one parent lives a ling distance from their child Virtual Visitation required that households of the custodial and non-custodial parents to have newer model computers equipped with webcams or other video conferencing equipment and Instant Messaging capabilities.
Although such visitation is not a replacement or substitute to real visitation in person and not intended to support or justify a relocation or move-away of the custodial parent with the child, it is a certainly a substantial improvement over the telephone because th parent and child can see each other as the speak.

Other options in addition to the old standby of regular telephone visitation can include email communications, which can allow more instantaneous communications than simply mailing a letter. These options should all be utilized so that the long-distance (or even shorter-distance) parent has regular, quality visitation with the child.
