What to know about virtual visitation

Ideally, Texas divorced parents would be able to spend time with their children on a regular basis. However, some parents live too far from their children to make regular visitation worth pursuing.

Virtual visitation may involve exchanging emails, text messages or videos on a regular basis.

This is not in the best interests of the children and is illegal.

When an ex files for custody

When parents in Texas divorce or separate, both parties are usually concerned about their children's welfare.
