Supervised Visitation & Safe Exchange
At our “Chat House” Supervised Visitation Centers in Visalia & Porterville, children can visit with their non-custodial parent or transfer from one custodial parent to another in a safe, conflict-free environment. Supervised Visitation is contact between a non-custodial party and one or more children in the presence of a neutral third person. Neutrality in the context of the Supervised Visitation Program means that the program staff members are not advocates for either parent, but are present to ensure a setting that is supportive of children’s safety.
Supervised visits allow a child to have safe contact with a non-custodial parent without having to be put in the middle of the parents’ conflicts or be vulnerable to a parent’s other problems. Family Services belongs to and follows the standards of the National Supervised Visitation Network and abides by the California Rules of Court - Standard 5.20. Uniform standards of practice for providers of supervised visitation.
