Even More About Virtual Visitation
I know, I know, enough about virtual visitation already. Here's the thing: the AP has a story today about virtual visitation. And it contains some new (to me) information.
First, it provides a full picture of the status of virtual visitation legislation: Utah has a virtual visitation law; Wisconsin will have a law when the governor signs it; and the Illinois, Missouri, and Virginia legislatures are considering virtual visitation bills.
Second, the story contains some interesting arguments in favor of virtual visitation. Of course the story repeats the old argument that virtual visitation can't replace the real thing. But it also asserts that virtual visitation can help spouses get along by removing fear or uncertainty that a child is being monitored or manipulated. Also, a better connected parent is more likely to pay child support.
