Parenting plans are designed to fulfill the unique needs of parents and children. When a parent is far away due to a job or a military career, modern technology can sustain strong relationships between parents and children. At The Massachusetts Family Law Group, our lawyers closely follow current trends and changes in the law pertaining to families, including military families, in Massachusetts and throughout the country.
Massachusetts Parenting Time Attorneys
If you are not able to be close to your child geographically, it is important to assert your right to be involved in your child's life through a parenting plan. You have the right to one-on-one, uninterrupted time with your child. Through virtual visitation over the Internet, parents are now able to speak with their sons and daughters in real time. Virtual visitation is a relatively new option that is starting to work its way into parenting plans across the nation.
Remember, you can be as creative as you wish with your parenting plan. If you desire time with your children and you're not able to travel to be with them due to military deployment or another reason, speak to a divorce and child custody attorney about your options.
Virtual Visitation and Military Parents
As a military parent, you have the right to parent your children, even if you are stationed in another state or overseas. Regularly scheduled online virtual visits through Skype or other software (Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.) can be included in your parenting plan, allowing you to keep in contact with your children.
