Texas parents who have gone through a divorce may have to figure out how to handle virtual visitation issues. Many are unfamiliar with this term, which relates to using technology, such as instant messaging, video conferencing and email, to keep in touch with a child. In many cases, a non-custodial parent may choose to stay in touch with their child using this technology when they relocate. Another common reason for using this technology is when the custodial parent moves out of the area, making it harder for the other parent to see the child. Such arrangements have also become common in cases with unmarried parents that do not live together.
