Supervised visitations allow parents in high conflict or high risk situations access to their children in a safe and supervised environment. The non-custodial parent has access to the child only when supervised by a worker. Supervised visitation is used to protect children from potentially dangerous situations while allowing parental access and providing support for the parent child relationship.
There are three types of supervised visitations: in office, in community, and in home. Parents typically commence with office visits. With progress, this can evolve into community visits. If goals are being met, parents can eventually have in home visits.
