It is not uncommon that after a divorce one parent decides to relocate out of State. Whether that be for a new job, schooling, or just a change of scenery. If there are children involved, then the first question that may arise is how you are going to see your child. In this blog, we will be discussing how recent technological advancements are allowing parents to still be a big part of their child’s life, even while living in another State.
Twenty years ago, it would only have been possible to see a distant child a couple times per year by driving or traveling on a plane; however, recent advancements in technology allow you to see your child every day if you so choose. Services such as Zoom, Skype, or Facebook are helping to make it easier for divorced parents to see their child face to face than ever before.
Virtual Visitation Laws
Only until recent years have virtual visitation laws begun springing up around the Country. In fact, since 2004 eighteen States have passed or are trying to pass virtual visitation laws, with Utah being the first.
While Colorado does not have specific virtual visitation laws, a Judge can accept this method of visitation in certain situations. We at the Drake Law Firm are hopeful that Colorado soon becomes a State with specific visitation laws, especially since the spread of Covid-19 has become a pressing issue in many parents’ minds.
