What is virtual visitation?

Virtual visitation is when parents use video conferencing, Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, and other technology to “visit” with their children. Virtual visitation might be included in a custody order if the judge believes in-person visitation is not safe or it might be included in addition to in-person visits. Often it is ordered when the custodial parent has relocated to allow frequent contact between the child and the non-custodial parent.
