Why Supervised Visitation & Exchange?
Parents have a shared responsibility for their children. Most often children benefit from having regular contact with both parents regardless of the parents' relationship.
Supervised Visitation and Exchange Services are for the benefit of children that may not have safe, conflict-free contact with one or both parents without the intervention of a neutral person.

Do I Really Need These Services?
Are there concerns about your child's emotional or physical well-being while visiting their parent?
Would you like objective & documented observations of visits?
Are you concerned about the objectivity of the current visit supervisor or their ability to intervene when necessary during a visit?
Are your children being caught in emotional, physical or verbal crossfire when your former spouse comes over, or when you go to pick them up?
It is not necessary to have a court order to use our services.
Many parents who want to protect their children from unnecessary anxiety use monitored exchange services by mutual agreement.
