In a precedent-setting decision, the Indian High Court in Bombay has ruled that divorced fathers can connect with their non-custodial children through video conferencing, so that they can remain informed of their children’s development even though they’re unable (typically due to geography) to meet face-to-face.

However, while divorced dads across are cheering the legal victory, the ruling is not without limitations.

All video conferencing between divorced fathers and their children must take place in the presence of a court official, who will keep a close eye on whether the conversation is pleasant or stressful.

In addition, the court rejected the argument that persons other than the divorced father, such as grandparents or other relatives, should be allowed to participate in the video conference.
