Can I modify a visitation order to include virtual visitation?

Numerous parents in Massachusetts are unable to see their children daily due to court-ordered custody and visitation schedules. This is often a difficult thing to deal with for many non-custodial parents. If you are one of the countless number of parents in this type of situation, the use of technology may be a good visitation tool for you and your kids.

Visitation schedules are written in a manner that are deemed best for the affected children. Unfortunately, in many cases, both children and non-custodial parents may find themselves wanting more communication. Virtual visitation may be the answer.

Along with setting physical visitation time in a court order, non-custodial parents may be able to request virtual visitation time. If granted, they will have the ability to contact their children via video-calling, video-messaging, email, text and by using social media platforms. How often you are able to make contact using any of these methods can be spelled out in a visitation order and/or parenting agreement.

The combination of physical and virtual visitation can help non-custodial parents keep close relationships with their children. Unfortunately, getting the visitation time one would like is not always easy to accomplish. An experienced family law attorney can assist non-custodial parents in Massachusetts with achieving modifications to current visitation orders to include the use of technology as a form of added communication.
