Okay I have two questions.
I live in New York state and am familiar with my state's Grandparent' Rights laws having been dragged into court twice by my ex mother in law. From what I understand since she didn't make an effort in the first 2 years of my daughter's life (she's 6 now and the visits have gone from monthly to sporadic) to try and build a relationship she doesn't really have the right to demand visitation. Or demand that I (with my 2 jobs) call her (On SSI and Disability) to set up visits. Actually I don't have to worry about her because my lawyer and the judge hearing the case made a movement to toss out any further cases from her because they're a waste of my time.
However my daughter and I have lived with my parents for the past 6 years and they've had a part in helping me raise her. But I'm getting ready to move from NY on the East Coast in the States to BC on the West Coast in Canada. My parents, my daughter, my fiancè and I all have passports, but the cost of a flight from BC to NY can vary depending on the time of year from 325$ per person to 650$ per person. So would it be possible to just allow my parents virtual visits with their granddaughter along with phonecalls since both parties involved know of the expenses involved? Or should we make some other type of agreement to avoid any more court crap?
