How Supervised Visitation monitors work for families

Supervised visitation, sometimes referred to as Monitored Visitation, Supervised Child Access, or Supervised Child Contact, refers to contact between a non-custodial parent and one or more children in the presence of a third person responsible for observing and seeking to ensure the safety of those involved. Supervised visit services are for families with children who are involved in high-risk emotional or physical situations. The supervised visitation Provider offers a safe and protected environment to control external influences of stress on the child.

As a Supervised visitation monitors in Los Angeles California, legal Angels follow all the guidelines and law under the family court rules. When a family is ordered to do Supervised visits we first gather all the necessary documents. Then an intake or a “face to face” meeting with each party is arranged. The custodial parent introduces us to the children. We then determine a meeting place and day and time following the court orders for a visit to occur.

After the first visit there is a conversation of how it went and what needs to change. Reports can be ordered after each visit or a summary of all of them. There is an extra charge for reports.

No one ever goes into a marriage and has children thinking Ooh… I can’t wait till I’ve been with someone for 10 years and have an amazing child and when my marriage is over, I have no home, no money, and I must pay some stranger to be with me while I visit my child because I’m not a fit parent. If this is your reality, then the best words of wisdom I have is to just get through it. The process is long and tiresome and seems like you’ll never be done. But eventually justice does prevail and true colors do come out and the court will see it. That is why it exists. Supervised Visitation does work and we work for families. Our ultimate goal is to get families to be able to communicate effectively for the benefit of the children.
