Parenting time becomes supervised when regular parenting time isn't suitable for a family, often times due to high conflict, domestic violence, unresolved mental health or substance use concerns, or when a long term parenting plan hasn't been established.
Supervised parenting time allows children and parents to see one another in a structured and safe way while a neutral supervisor is present to observe and make notes.

Our standards of practice and supervisor training exceed Supervised Visitation Network minimum standards. You can read more about SVN below.
Supervisors are trained to remain neutral, allow parental autonomy, and provide interventions only when safety concerns arise.
Supervisors don't rotate. This means each family will work with one supervisor for planning, scheduling, and supervision.
The standard level of supervision is full observation. During full observation the supervisor remains with the family throughout parenting time and will be able to visually and/or audibly observe the family at all times within reason.
Other levels of supervision
- Intermittent observation
- Drop-in observation
- Remote observation
- Exchanges only
The level of supervision dictates how a supervisor observes parenting time- proximity of the supervisor, frequency and duration of observation, and note-taking practices. The level of supervision is determined by existing need and safety factors.
