How can military parents handle visitation?

As parents in Indiana who have decided to get a divorce, a lot of the decisions that will follow must be centered on your children. One big potential issue is that of visitation rights and schedules. This can be a source of conflict and stress for many families, especially for those in the military.

The National Conference of State Legislatures says that many states already have provisions in place for situations in which one or both people involved in a divorce are active members of the military. If you are actively in the military or other armed forces, then you likely won't be able to create or stick with a visitation schedule in the same way that non-military parents would be able to. Your schedule is likely subject to change along with your deployment and location at any given time.

Of course you are still entitled to visitation. However, your chaotic situation could make it hard or even impossible for you to stick with a schedule or even to meet up regularly at all. Fortunately, these days, technology can help with some of that. For example, many people in your situation utilize apps like Skype or other video-call services in order to connect directly with their children no matter where they are in the world. The addition of being able to see their faces makes some people favor this over more "traditional" phone calls.

If you are a member of the military and want to know more about how visitation schedules and other related situations can be worked out for you, consider contacting an experienced attorney to learn more about your legal rights and potential solutions.
