Before ordering “electronic communication,” as defined in F.S 61.046(5), a court must consider if it is in the best interest of the child; whether the equipment or technology is affordable and accessible to the parties; the parties’ history of domestic violence or substance abuse; and any other factor the court deems material.
The court may also set safeguards or guidelines for such electronic communication.
The court must allocate the expense of the electronic communication.
Each parent must provide the other parent the access information (e.g., email address, webcam information, telephone number) and notify the other parent of any change within seven days.
Electronic communication may not be used to replace face-to-face parenting time.
