A number of circumstances might trigger supervised child visitation and exchange monitoring, which tends to be court-ordered. These circumstances include parental conflict, substance abuse, mental health issues, allegations of abuse and extended time away from a child. Our trained, experienced supervised visitation providers, ensure the safety of the child and are aware of each family’s safety need. During supervised visitation or exchange we respect and listen to each family member while engaging families in activates and communications. Our visitation monitors observe the meeting between the parent and child in an impartial manner. That means the monitor should not intervene but instead should watch the parties interact. We stay within hearing and sight range of them at all times. If we notice something that might put the child in danger, we intervene; otherwise, the monitor keeps interruptions to a minimum. Our detail-oriented and conscientious monitors write down the activities in as objective manner as possible during each supervised visitation or exchange. It is our job to ensure the child feels safe and comfortable we serve as an impartial observer, unless there is a clear and present danger in the parent-child interaction.

Supervised Visitation Monitor

During each supervised visitation or supervised exchange;  we adhere to court order, make effort to assure the safety and welfare of the children during Supervised Visitation and Exchanges. We conduct comprehensive intake and screening interviews before visits and keep complete records.

Supervised Visits

As provider of supervised visits, we are vigilant in supervising all situations, behaviors and interactions of all family members. We keep clear records of any concern about safety according with policies. We maintain appropriate and ongoing communication with attorneys, parents,  courts and other concerned parties to oversee effective and efficient service delivery through collaboration.

Intake Interview

We collect key information during the intake process to increase safety, reduce liability and eliminate confusion. It allows providers of supervised visitations to be better prepared and more aware of risks that may be of particular concern. The goal of intake interview is to have free and open communication. In this meeting we provide transparency of process meaning there should be no secrets or surprises.
