Professional Supervised
Visitation
Services

Providing neutral, 3rd party supervision services that promote the safety and welfare of your child.

I provide Professional Supervised Visitation Monitoring services that combine certified parent coaching and supervised parent visitation time into one service.

The supervision is continuous, in-person audio and visual supervision of the visiting parent.

I will not leave a child alone with the supervised parent for any portion of the supervised parenting time. Observation notes, parenting support and redirection are provided during the supervised visitation session.

What does supervised visitation look like?

 

When I provide Professional Supervised Visitation Monitoring I will meet you at your home or an agreed upon community location to provide supervised visitation services.

I attempt to make parenting time supervision as non-invasive for your child/ren as possible, while maintaining constant visual and auditory contact.

During your orientation session for supervised visitation you will be given helpful parenting tips to support both transitions and parent-child interactions. It is my goal to make court ordered parenting time supervision as positive as possible for you and your child/ren.

During a supervised visitation session, I will enforce visitation rules and, if necessary, pause or stop visitation to correct parental behavior that is either unsafe, in violation of supervised visitation rules or if your child becomes acutely distressed. As a professional supervised visitation monitor, I follow all requirements and guidelines as outlined by the Minnesota Judicial Branch.

It is my goal to support you in your journey back to unsupervised visitation with your child/ren.

Please note both parents and any children over the age of 12 must complete a one-time only intake session (held virtually) prior to supervised visitation beginning. The intake session will determine if your case will be accepted. This intake session is $40/person. This fee is non-refundable.

WHERE DOES SUPERVISION VISITATION TAKE PLACE?

Supervised visitation/parenting time sessions are held within the Twin Cities community (Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area only) at a mutually agreed upon location as allowed by the Court Order and approved by the Certified Parent Coach/Professional Supervised Visitation Monitor. I do not provide secure, office or facility-based supervision services.

WHAT STANDARDS FOR SUPERVISED VISITATION MONITORING DO YOU FOLLOW?

Happy Parenting & Families follows the Minnesota Standards for Professional Parenting Time Supervisors in Family Court Proceedings. I do not provide therapeutic supervision services. I also do not provide supervision services for sexual abuse cases (this applies to reported, suspected or confirmed sexual abuse cases.)

WHAT INFORMATION IS NEEDED TO BEGIN?

Prior to your first supervised visitation session, both parents must complete a series of forms and provide copies of documents from the court, child protection services, protective orders, harassment/restraining orders, etc. All documents and forms will be reviewed before a final determination will be made to accept your case. Please note there is a non-refundable $40 fee for each intake session.

WHAT KIND OF SUPERVISED VISITATION DOCUMENTATION DO YOU PROVIDE?

Observation notes are taken and provided to all parties as required or requested after the end of each session, typically within 3 business days. If a parenting time session needs to be terminated for any reasons, all parties will receive notification the same day. If additional reports/documentation are needed for court, an additional fee may be charged.
