In spite of the six thousand manuals on child raising in the bookstores, child raising is still a dark continent and no one really knows anything. You just need a lot of love and luck - and, of course, courage. ~Bill Cosby, Fatherhood, 1986

Virtual Visitation Helps Maintain Strong Parent-Child Relationships PDF Print E-mail

Virtual visitation is great way to stay connected with out-of-state children.

July 05, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Online video calling services and social media sites have greatly increased Americans' connectivity to family, friends and colleagues. While most find these services a convenient way to keep in touch, for non-custodial parents that live in a different state than their children, video calling and social media are essential tools for staying connected to their kids and maintaining strong parent-child relationships. This type of communication is known as virtual visitation, and awarding such visitation is an increasingly popular child custody stipulation.

What Is Virtual Visitation?

Virtual visitation is a wonderful way for out-of-state, non-custodial parents to maintain close relationships with their children. Often, geographical distance between parents and children strain this important relationship. According to statistics from the National Center for State Courts, 25 percent of the 35 million children with separated, divorced or single parents have a parent that lives in a different city. As a result, 10 million children do not get face time with their non-custodial parent.

In the late 1990s, family law courts started awarding non-custodial parents virtual visitation. Virtual visitation rights entitle non-custodial parents to video calling and social media contact with their children. Currently, six states have virtual visitation laws in effect -- Florida, Illinois, North Carolina, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin -- and 22 others are considering such legislation.

When a family law judge awards virtual visitation rights, he or she will also outline how frequently these visits will occur and how long they will last. Most virtual visitation laws also include protections for children to help prevent abuse and harm. Like other child custody decisions, virtual visitation decisions are made in the best interests of the child.

How Does Virtual Visitation Strengthen Relationships?

As some out-of-state, non-custodial parents have experienced, reduced visits and time with children often erodes relationships with kids, making infrequent visits awkward. Virtual visitation allows non-custodial parents and children to share in everyday joys and sorrows like they did before the parents separated. Children can share report cards, soccer game scores and problems with friends or school with their parent on a video call or through social media. Keeping non-custodial parents in the loop helps enrich the relationship between parent and child.

Parents that live apart from their children should seriously consider pursuing virtual visitation rights. If you would like to learn more about how virtual visitation works in Virginia, please contact an experienced Richmond family law attorney.

 
Mother arrested after leaving five-year-old son to gamble at casino PDF Print E-mail

A mother wanted on counterfeiting charges has been accused of leaving her five-year-old son alone in a hotel room so she could gamble.

Xiao Xu Wu was charged on Wednesday with risk of injury to a minor after her son called 911 and said he was left alone at a Mohegan Sun Casino in New York.

Police said the 38-year-old Wu had pending immigration charges and was wanted in Rocky Mount, North Carolina on counterfeiting charges. She also was charged as a fugitive from justice and held on a $200,000 bond.

As CBS News reports, the five-year-old boy did not know where his mother was when he woke up from a nap to find himself alone, and called 911.

The dispatcher gently questioned him about her whereabouts and determined his mother was absent.

Police say the woman left her cellphone number on the nightstand with instructions not to open the door for anyone, but the boy said he could not read the note.

The state Department of Children and Families has taken the child into custody.

The mother was arrested and charged with risk of injury to a minor. The Courant reports Wu was also wanted on immigration charges.

According to the network, she told prosecutors she 'felt that there was nothing wrong with what she had done' by leaving her boy alone in the hotel room. 

In a statement to the newspaper, the casino said: 'Here at Mohegan Sun we do everything we can to provide the opportunity for all guests to act responsibly.

'When it comes to child care, we have multiple options available for guests including Kids Quest and Cyber Quest facilities. We have a no tolerance policy for things of this nature and are cooperating fully with all authorities on this matter.'

The case was continued to February 24.

It's not known if Wu is represented by a lawyer.

PTI | Nagpur | Oct 25, 2011

'Save Indian Family Foundation' (SIFF), an NGO, has claimed that over five lakh people had been harassed by the alleged misuse of various women protection laws including the Anti-dowry Law, Domestic Violence Law and Maintenance Act, even as 22 per cent of total arrested in these cases are women.

Based on the figures provided by the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), the NGO that is fighting for the rights of husbands against the alleged misuse of these laws, has claimed that while these laws are increasingly misused by women, many women themselves are falling prey to it, Rajesh Vakharia, a founder member and president of Nagpur Chapter of the Foundation told PTI.

Child custody: High court to consider counsellors PDF Print E-mail

MUMBAI: The Bombay high court on Tuesday said it will consider a suggestion for evaluation of a child by a trained counsellor before granting custody in matrimonial disputes.

The suggestion was made to a division bench of Justices P B Majmudar and Anoop Mohta by advocate Meena Doshi. She said the practice of calling children to the judges' chamber to ascertain their wish is insufficient.

Doshi said a trained counsellor can consider a child's willingness or not to go with either parent. "Have trained child counsellors find out the psychological makeup of the child before granting custody. That element cannot be considered by judges, as they are not experts," Doshi said. She said the court can consider taking the help of trained counsellors from institutes such as Tata Institute of Social Sciences. The judges welcomed her suggestion and said they will consider it in future. "We'll keep it in mind," said Justice Majmudar.

Doshi, who said she usually doesn't appear in matrimonial cases, made the suggestion in a case where the mother of a teenager was opposing his father who wanted to take him for vacation. The family court had granted the wife a divorce last year and allowed husband access to their son once a week. The husband appealed in high court against the order and after it was filed, the father was allowed overnight access.

The wife's advocate argued that the boy does not want to go with his father. She also alleged that in his earlier marriage, he has a daughter but is not bothered about her.

"Nowadays everyone wants boys. Even TV serials are showing this discrimination," said Justice Majmudar. The boy, who had accompanied his mother, was called before the entire courtroom. The judges then decided to ask him in their chamber if he is willing to go with his father. After interviewing him, they allowed the father to take him outside Mumbai from May 14 to 21. The wife also gave her consent.

Fathers’ hopes of securing equal rights over their children will be dashed tomorrow when a review of family law is published.

Plans to give parents equal rights to share custody of their children in the event of a split have been rejected by the Family Justice Review, led by former civil servant and businessman David Norgrove.

In a further blow to fathers’ rights campaigners, the Norgrove Report will also reject calls to enshrine in law the principle that children should have a ‘meaningful relationship’ with both their mother and father.

Karthika Gopalakrishnan, TNN Oct 2, 2011, 12.32AM IST

CHENNAI: In the crossfire of a divorce battle between their children and respective spouses, grandparents often suffer the most when denied access to their grandchildren, lawyers say. Taking a look at this spillover effect of divorces on the occasion of International Elders' Day, advocates say that in the absence of legal provisions, there is no room for grandparents to seek remedy from courts in this regard.

"I often get calls from grandparents saying they are not able to see their grandchildren at all. It's especially hard if a divorce has happened within a joint family set-up. Mothers take their children away and do not allow grandparents to visit. A parent who has moved away knows that this would hurt grandparents the most," said Sheila Jayaprakash, a reputed family court lawyer.
