The Importance of Supervised Visitation and Exchanges

Supervised visitation and exchanges are generally ordered by the courts to protect the health and welfare of a child or children whose parents or guardians share custody. In most cases, the parents or guardians exhibit behaviors or patterns that could pose a threat to the mental or physical well-being of their child. Supervised exchange services are often required due to any of the following concerns:

• Anger and Control Issues
• Family Reunification
• Parental Conflicts
• Flight Risks
• Substance Abuse
• Neglect and Dysfunction
• Divorce and Custody Issues


By engaging in supervised visitation, one or both guardians may demonstrate to the court that they are ready and willing to follow all court-ordered requirements regarding the welfare of their children. This is a vital part of gaining more freedom and the trust of the court when it comes to custody and visitation of the child. As supervised visitation monitors, we are here to help facilitate safe and healthy interactions between not only parents and children, but also between each of the parents. A visitation monitor can help a child feel more at ease during visitation, leading to better mental health.

Approved Supervised Visitation Locations

Children should have visitation in a variety of locations for more fulfilling and successful visits. To this end, we encourage parents and guardians to hold the visitation in a variety of age-appropriate locations such as:

• Parks and Beaches
• Restaurants
• Church
• Libraries and Museums
• Zoos and Amusement Parks
