What is Supervised Visitation?

Supervised Visitation is the contact between the Non-Custodial Party with one or more Children, in the presence of a neutral third party. The Professional Provider does not determine the circumstances surrounding the Court Ordered Supervised Visitations, but rather observes and document the actions, activities, & conversations during a Visit. As a Provider of Supervised Visitations, I only record factual events & conversations!
Professional Providers never document opinions, emotions, or recommendations.
  • A "Non-Professional Provider", as defined in Family Code section 3200.5, is any person who is not paid for providing Supervised Visitation Services.
  • A "Professional Provider", as defined in Family Code section 3200.5, is any person who is paid for providing Supervised Visitation Services, or an Independent Contractor, employee, intern, or volunteer operating independently or through a Supervised Visitation center or agency.
  • A "TrustLine Provider", is a Professional Supervised Visitation Provider who is registered on TrustLine, a database that is administered by the California Department of Social Services.
