There For You During Your Most Trying Times

What is a supervised visitation?

Florida couples who officially split will still have more hurdles ahead of them after their divorce. One of the biggest potential hurdles is visitation rights, which will determine how often you may be able to see your child based on various circumstances.

Sometimes, traditional visitation options may not be suitable for your situation. It could be for any number of reasons, but in the end, it boils down to the court’s feelings about you and the other parent. If they believe that the child could be in danger if left totally alone with a parent, they will issue supervised visitation orders. What does this mean? It essentially means that you will need a third party present at all times when you visit your child, for the sake of their potential safety.

Supervised visitations can happen in a number of locations, including your home. Public locations are also common, such as public parks, restaurants or playgrounds. The third party in question can also be picked from a wide number of possibilities, as long as the court deems that they are responsible. For example, they may be a relative to one of the parents, a close family friend, a counselor or a therapist.

Issues surrounding visitation can be complex, very personal and emotional, so it is best to work them out as quickly as possible. If you would like to read more about supervised visitation or other creative visitation options that might work in your unique situation, please visit our web page.
