Independent Professional Supervised Visitation Monitoring Service. Los Angeles, California

For Parents Looking for a Monitor

The first step is selecting a Monitor. Review the Monitors list and select one that best meets your needs, approved example: Male or female, cheap close to your area or where the exchange will take place and of course price.

How do I get started and what’s required?
You need to contact the Monitor to see if he or she is available and if so, visit this site set up an “Intake” session. (this is basically an interview at which you need to bring certain documentation and agree to the contract for service). The monitor will need to meet with both parents separately. This can be done at your homes, a coffee shop or other location. Note. Supervised Visitation Monitors are independent contractors, trained to handle Court ordered visitations. The monitors are always paid in cash for their services at the beginning of each visit or other service that you require. This requirement is not a reflection upon you, but rather the nature of the business.

Step One:
Registration
Initiating services with the Monitor is easy. The entire process can be completed quickly. This depends solely on the parents involved in establishing the service. The Monitor will work diligently to move through the four stages of getting started as the goal is to ensure that the visiting parent and child or children are able to visit with each other in a safe and comfortable environment and the monitor will rely on you to assist in this process.

Step Two:
Submit your documents
After you have completed the new client registration packet, the first phase of the intake process begins.

  1. Copies of any protective orders filed. b. Current court order. c. Any Judicial Council form relating to supervised visitation orders. d. A report of any written records of allegations of domestic violence or abuse.

    e. An account of the child or children’s health needs if they have a chronic health condition.

Other public information may also be obtained. These documents will be reviewed to assess the nature and degree of risk for your case (Reference Source: 2017 Uniform Standards of Practice for providers of supervised visitation, Sect. 5.20(g)(2)(3).

Step Three:
Attend Intake Interview
Following the documentation review, the next stage of the intake process will occur. The monitor will contact both parents to schedule separate intake orientation appointments.

The intake interview will last between 45 min  to an hour and the discussion will focus on the following areas:
a. Submitted documentation.
b. Standards & Policies, the 2017 California Uniform standards of practice for providers of supervised visitation.
c. A preliminary visitation schedule.
d. The current fees and costs relative to services.
e. Discuss health and safety measures.

Step Four:
Scheduling and the First Visit
During the interview you will be asked to provide information regarding your ideal visitation schedule. The duration will depend on the court order. The goal is to work with both parents to create a service schedule which takes into account other life events (i.e. work, sleep and play). Scheduling can be challenging and creating a “perfect” schedule for both parents is not an exact science. At times, it will heavily rely upon each parent’s commitment to flexibility and / or the Court Order.

Remember – your focus on the child and the child’s needs, along with the mandate of the court order, is paramount in creating a service schedule which works for all parties involved.
