What is Supervised Visitation?
Although noncustodial parents have the right to visit their children, these rights can be modified for unique situations. If the court believes normal visitation rights are not in the best interest of the child, a judge may restrict the parent’s visitation rights in a number of ways. One way in which they may do this is by only allowing supervised visitation, which requires that a third party be present at all times during visitation.
If you need help with your custody and/or visitation agreements, a skilled and qualified legal representative will be able to advise you on your rights and options.

Who Can Be a Supervisor?
If one parent is not granted custody and is, therefore, seeking visitation rights, he or she must have a visitation hearing during which a judge determines the details of his or her visitation rights. Depending on the situation, such as the parent is a recovering alcoholic or has not been around the child much, a judge may grant supervised visitation. If this is the case, the supervisor may be any of the following individuals:
- Family members like grandparents, uncles, or aunts
- Close friends the custodial parent trusts
- Professional supervisors
- Other licensed professionals
If you are seeking supervised visitation or to fight a supervised visitation agreement, a qualified divorce attorney may be able to help you.
