"Today we’re going to talk about a few tips to help foster better communication between you and your child if you’re facing a divorce situation. I’m Steve Kramer. I’m a Florida family law and divorce attorney. We are in the digital age and it’s important to keep in mind that there are other options for communication that you might use over the course of your divorce and after the divorce. And this can be especially important if maybe you work odd hours, maybe you’ve got an odd schedule where maybe you have to work long shifts, overnight shifts, or maybe just shifts that interfere with you having regular good face-to-face time with your child. And some of these things that you might want to keep in mind are things like Facebook. You can Facebook your child. Email, you can email your child. It’s not quite as time consuming as writing a letter, but you know everybody uses email.

We know it’s out there. There’s also FaceTime and Skype. And these are all really good alternatives. And FaceTime is great. I don’t know if you’ve ever had maybe family that’s gone out of town or maybe family that lives outside of town, but there’s a certain connection you can have by watching, looking your family in the eye. Seeing how they’re doing, seeing what they look like, and just having that visual connection. And that’s a really good option outside of just picking up the phone to seeing your kid and having communication with your kid. And it’s something to really keep in mind. It may not be as great as spending time one-on-one with your child in person, but it’s a good option to look at. And if you’re having trouble coming to an agreement on it or you’ve had difficulty without a formal written agreement, then it might be something to include in the final judgment or in the martial settlement agreement. If you go ahead and negotiate at mediation or you wind up going to a trial, either way make sure you get some of these other forms of communication in your divorce. I deal with this stuff all the time. I’ve seen what bad communication can do, it’s important to talk to you kid. It’s important to be able to be important in their life and be able to talk to them as much as possible and spend time together and these are just other ways you can spend time – good, quality time – with your children. If you have any questions, we deal with this stuff all the time. I’d be glad to help you.

I’m Steve Kramer. Thanks for watching."
