Sometimes, based on issues of protection and safety, a judge will order that a child only have contact with a parent when a neutral third person is present during the visitation. This type of third-person visitation arrangement is often called supervised visitation. In this type of scenario, it is best for all parties involved to have supervised visitations through a caring, certified agency. The Greater Hope Foundation is just such an agency in Southern California.
What Is a Supervised Visitation?
A supervised visitation is defined as contact between a non-custodial parent and one or more children in the presence of a third person. This third person is responsible for observing and ensuring that the safety of those involved is maintained, fully and continuously.
How Do Supervised Visitations Help Children?
Through supervised visitations, we can help strengthen family relationships through normal familiar contact, exchange and support services, and provide a child with a focused environment for while their family is in transition.
