Three Tech Tools To Aid With Parenting Time/Visitation

With parenting time and visitation matters, technology has played a key role in aiding smoother parenting time transitions and contact. A basic example is on-line posting by courts of the Indiana Supreme Court’s parenting time guidelines. Every day, however, new forms of technology tools become available that facilitate parenting time/visitation. Depending on your situation, this blog introduces three such tools that may fit you need and/or prepare you for contempt/modification by helping capture evidence. Is one right for your situation?

The first is thefamilywizard.com that provides a variety of tools for parents to use to focus on parenting time/visitation agreements without involvement of the other side insofar as person-to-person direct communication is required. In simple terms, this is an on-line tool that is a calendar to allow parents to schedule and track time and share other information about the children with the other parent.

The second is Skype; while more known, it plays an invaluable role where parenting time must occur at a distance. It allows by television and camera face-to-face chats. While it is not a substitute for in-person parenting, it is particularly useful in situations when this is impossible or infrequent. A classic example of where Skype may be used for parenting time is with a parent who is in the active military and deployed.

The third and the cutting edge is LG’s new watch-like phone aimed at children 4 to 8 years of age. It allows the parent who purchases this for the child to set out 2 outgoing calls and 4 incoming calls and is capable of GPS tracking of the child. This avoids a parent having to facilitate some or all contact with the other—providing the child with a more authentic and organic call to the other parent.

These tools also provide a “electronic-trail” of evidence that maybe used for contempts and modification proceedings where one parent claims the other did or did not do “X” things/visitation with the child. Ultimately, the child’s best interests are met by the proper use of these tech tools, so long as allowed by law.
