Professional Supervised Child Visitation in Federal Way, WA

Offering a Neutral Observer for Child Custody Visits

At Community Family Services - Supervised Visitation, we have the best interest of the children in our care and their families at heart. Our neutral observers offer professional supervised child visitation in Federal Way, WA, as well as Pierce and South King Counties. We ensure the safety of all parties by supervising the transfer of your children, and not allowing contact between parents and/or guardians. It is our goal to guarantee the children's safety and well-being during all visits when there are conflicts between the parents. We have extensive experience providing visit supervision required because of the following issues or concerns:

• Anger and Control Issues • Cultural Values • Emotional, Physical, and Sexual Abuse • Family Law Matters
• Family Reunification • Flight Risks • Neglect and Dysfunction • Parental Alienation
• Parental Conflicts • Substance Abuse • Divorce and Custody Issues • Domestic Violence

The Importance of Visitation Supervisors

Supervised visitation is usually ordered by the court for the protection of children of divorced parents and the parents themselves. Divorce can be a stressful and traumatizing process for everyone involved, especially children of any age. Supervision during visitation helps reduce the tension between parents and children, reduce the potential for stressful arguments by eliminating the need for parents to interact with each other, and build self-esteem and confidence in the children by providing a safe and supportive environment during their visits.

In more complicated situations, the visitation supervisor helps keep the child safe in the presence of a non-custodial parent who has been accused of abuse, neglect, or other negative behaviors. By being present and neutral, they ensure that all interactions are healthy and safe for everyone involved. In addition to child custody supervised visitation services, our professionals will also provide observation reports to the court as necessary for the purpose of reevaluating custody or other needs.
