After divorce, you might feel devastated, angry, and upset when your ex-wife relocates and takes the kids to another state. Or your ex might strategically try to turn your kid against you. It would be best to contact an experienced divorce lawyer to see if anything can be done.
An experienced divorce lawyer dealing with a father’s rights can help prove that child support modification is in your kid’s best interests. There are tried and proven ways to see your kids more after divorce, even if you aren’t physically nearby. Consider some of these options.
Your kids use today’s technology to stay connected to their friends. Connect with them this way also:
Skype or FaceTime
About 22% of fathers see their kids only once a week, especially when they live separately. Thankfully, Skype or FaceTime are enjoyable, helpful ways to stay connected. Unlike regular phone calls, Skype and FaceTime use video and camera technology to let you see each other while talking.
iPhone has FaceTime, where both sides of the call can see each other through the phone’s camera while talking. Skype uses the webcam on your PC for the same thing. Use these features to talk to your kids and see each other.
Texts and Emails
Stay connected easily and quickly with your older children via email addresses or cell phones. Emailing and texting are great ways for you and your kids to share photos.
Online Shared Calendars
Scheduling apps and websites allow co-parents to share a calendar that updates them on their kid’s events and activities. Agree with your co-parent to use such an app or website and update it. With that, you’ll have a quick and easy way to know what your kids do daily. You can also schedule a regular video or phone calls on the shared calendars.
Play the Same Games and Watch the Same TV Show
This might sound unusual, but playing the same game or watching TV online can help you bond with your kid. Agree with your kid when to watch the sports game or TV show. This helps you connect with them even if you’re miles away.
