Supervised Visitation Guidelines  

Supervised visitation is basically meant to allow a child a safe environment in which he or she can interact with the parent. It is done with the sole intention of promoting a healthy relationship between a parent and child. There are certain supervised visitation guidelines that need to be followed by the parent in cases where supervision has been mandated by the family court.

Supervised Visitation Guidelines:
In a supervised visitation, the monitor or supervisor is always present during the visit and the supervision starts from the moment the parent and child arrive on the scene. Any contact between the parent and child has to take place in the presence of the supervisor.

There are agencies that do supervised visitation and all payment and fees have to be paid to the agency in advance before each visit.

The custodial parent has the responsibility of bringing the child for the scheduled visit and then has to be there to pick up the child after the timing of the visit is over.

During supervised visitation, the non-custodial parent is not allowed to use foul language, shout, issue threats or make attempts to take the child away from the sight of the supervisor. In addition, the non-custodial parent cannot talk ill about the custodial parent to the child or check the whereabouts of the non-custodial parent. The non-custodial parent is not allowed to make promises to the child during the visit about future living arrangements. The non-custodial parent is not allowed to bring weapons or anything that can be used as a weapon for the meeting.

The supervisor has the authority to cancel the visitation if the non-custodial parent arrives for the scheduled visit under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

The custodial as well as the non-custodial parent have to listen and obey the rules laid down by the supervisor during the scheduled visitation.
