How Do You Choose a Professional Supervised Visitation Monitor
Your court order, lawyer, or Family Court Services office will probably give you information about supervised visitation services and a list of supervised visitation monitors in your area.
If you didn't get a list from them, you may ask for one or if you want help to choose a monitor, here are some things to think about before choosing a monitor. Look at:
The supervised visitation monitor's compliance with Standard 5.20 of the California Standards of Judicial Administration;
The monitor's compliance with training and education requirements;
The level of staff experience and expertise;
Child abuse and criminal background (fingerprinting) clearance for staff; and
The supervised visitation monitor's reputation and good standing with their professional association, the court, and the community.
Also, you will have an in person meeting (intake) with the supervised visitation monitor. Make a list of questions you have for the monitor and make sure you understand what services will be provided and what is expected of you. When you interview the monitor in person, discuss the monitor's policies and procedures, like:
Fees and method of payment,
Safety and security measures,
Program conditions and guidelines,
Hours of operation, and
Reasons for interrupting or ending a visit, and
If there are concerns about domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, or sexual abuse, choose a supervised visitation monitor who has been trained in these issues, and
