What is Supervised Visitation Monitoring?
Supervised Visitation refers to contact between a non-custodial parent and one or more children in the presence of a neutral third person responsible for observing and seeking to ensure the safety of those involved.
"Monitored Visitation", "Supervised Child Access, and "Supervised Child Contact" are other terms with the same meaning.
Supervised visitations allows parents in high conflict or high risk situations access to their children in a safe and supervised environment.
During the visits the professional provider documents the interactions between the parent and child(ren) and will remain a neutral observer.
What is Supervised Exchange?
The term "Supervised Exchanges", sometimes referred to as "Monitored Exchanges" or "Supervised/Monitored Transfers", is supervision of the transfer of the child from one parent to the other.
Supervision is limited to the "exchange or transfer only", with the remainder of the parent child contact remaining unsupervised.
Most frequently precautions are taken to assure that the two parents or other individuals exchanging the child do not come into contact with one another.
What is the Purpose?
Both Supervised Visits and Supervised Exchanges are designed to assure that a child can have safe contact with an absent parent without having to be put in the middle of the parent's conflicts or other problems.
The visitation allows the child(ren) to maintain a relationship with both of their parents, something that is generally found to be an important factor in the positive adjustment to family dissolution.
For the custodial parent:
You do not have to communicate or have contact with a person with whom you are in conflict or by whom you might be frightened or intimated. You can get valuable time for yourself.
The arrangements can be made by a neutral party (the visit monitor) and there does not have to be contact before, during or after the visits.
For the non-custodial parent:
You can be sure your contact with your child(ren) does not have to be interrupted regardless of any personal or interpersonal problems you may be experiencing.
