What You Need to Know
What Is A Professional Supervised Visitation Monitor?
A Professional Supervised Visitation Monitor is a trained, neutral third-person paid to supervise the contact between a visiting parent and their child(ren).

Where do the Supervised Visits take place?
Most supervised visitations take place at offsite locations like a park, the mall, a restaurant, sports games, festivals, the movies, the museum and many other locations. All locations must be in a populated public place and all parties must agree.

How are monitors assigned cases?
There are many ways monitors obtain cases including from family law attorneys, family law court, Foster parents, Child Protective Services and also by being contacted directly from the parents or family member requesting visits.
