virtual visitationSometimes, even when the court orders visitation, a parent isn’t able to spend enough time with his or her child. Jobs that require frequent travel, or family circumstances, sometimes make it hard for parents to be there for regular visits. But, thanks to modern technology, in some cases there may be a solution to this issue. Virtual visitation allows for parents and children to connect through things like Skype, Facetime, webcams, email, and text messages.

The law governing child support payments in Illinois is the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (“Act”). Under the Act, a couple can negotiate on their own what terms they want to work out for payment or, if the couple cannot agree, the court will arraign a structured payment plan that is in the best interests of the child or children.
