Why Court Order Supervised Visitation?
From the California Courts (The Judicial Branch of California)
The public policy of the state of California is to protect the best interest of children whose
parents have a custody or visitation matter in family court. Sometimes, based on issues of
protection and safety, a judge will order that a child only have contact with a parent when a
neutral third person is present during the visitation. This type of third-person visitation
arrangement is often called “supervised visitation.”
A judge may order supervised visitation for many reasons, like:
To give the visiting parent a chance to address specific issues;
To help reintroduce a parent and a child after a long absence;
To help introduce a parent and a child when there has been no existing relationship
When there is a history or allegations of domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, or
When there are parenting concerns or mental illness; or
When there is a parental threat of abduction.
The court order will specify the time and duration of the visits. Sometimes, the court
order will also specify who will provide the supervised visitation services and where the
visits will take place.
