After a divorce, you may get stuck with a child visitation agreement that you feel is unfair—leaving you with no visitation rights or very little time to see your children. So how do you change your visitation agreement? It's not impossible, but it's not easy either. Here are a few things you need to know.
In the past, it was much easier for an ex-spouse to flee a state with your children and skip out on child custody.

States didn't communicate well with each other, and different state laws sometimes contradicted each other.
