What Is A Professional Supervised Visitation Monitor?

- A trained, neutral third-person paid to supervise the contact between a visiting parent and their child(ren). Visitation Monitors ensure the safety and security of the child-parent interactions while documenting what is seen and heard during the visit.


What types of cases do monitors take?

- Monitors take cases such as Suspected Domestic Violence, Suspected Child Abuse, Suspected Mental Illness, Suspected Drug Use, Temporary / Court Ordered Restraining Order, Divorce, Foster children, Child Protective Services Cases and many other individual cases. 


Where do the Supervised Visits take place?

- Most supervised visitations happen at offsite locations like the park, the mall, a restaurant, sports games, festivals, the movies, the museum and many other locations. All locations must be in an populated public place and all parties must agree. 

Some Supervised visitations may take place in a more private setting like overnight or home visits but security measures like having a second monitor present may be in place. 


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.

- Monitors may choose to first take cases through our program for extended support or work as an independent monitor. 


How do monitors get paid?

- Monitors are paid directly by the parties (Parents, attorneys on behalf of their client, grandparents, or anyone else willing to pay for the clients services) who are ordered Supervised Visitation by the court. Some courts have referral lists that you can be listed on but some of our trainees market directly to Family law attorneys for cases. 

-For more information on what monitors charge for services, please go to the home page of this website. 


What Experience do you need to become a monitor? What are the Qualifications required in my State? 

- Professional Supervised Visitation Monitors  primarily have a background in working with children. It may be by being a foster parent, victim/children advocate, cps worker or volunteer, and many other careers and backgrounds.
