Supervised visitations provide an opportunity for the child and their parent to continue to develop in a safe, neutral, home-like setting that promotes positive interaction.
Most visits have full-time in-room monitoring or intermittent monitors who observer from outside the room. Although, some visitations take place without any monitoring at all.
The level of supervision is usually determined by the court or referring agency.
Other types of visitations:
BENEFITS OF SUPERVISED VISITATION
For the Child
Helps to maintain the bond between child and non-custodial parent.
Allows the non-custodial parent to demonstrate continued love and trust.
Provides reassurance to the child that the non-custodial parent has not ‘disappeared.’
Allows the child to anticipate the visitation without stress and without feeling in the middle of the parents’ conflict, allowing for a more enjoyable visit for all.
For the Custodial Party
With all visitation arrangements made through Kinship House, there is no contact before, during or after visitation with the non-custodial parent.
Peace of mind in knowing their child will feel secure during the visit.
For the Non-Custodial Party
Assures that contact with the child is not interrupted.
Provides for visitation without fear of any “accusations.”
Provides the child and non-custodial parents with motivation and hope.
Kinship House provides parents with the opportunity to exchange children in a safe and neutral setting without the children being caught in the middle of family/parental disputes. Parents are scheduled to drop off 15 – 20 minutes prior to the other parent picking up, eliminating the chance for contact.
