The Basics Of Supervised Visitation In Colorado

How Supervised Parental Visits Work

The focus is to facilitate healthy interactions with the parent and child to not fracture the parent-child bond.

Typically, visits are court-ordered by a Judge or Magistrate due to safety concerns where a supervised visitation specialist is employed in domestic relations IE: divorce or post-decree, dependency, and neglect cases. Additionally, the orders from the courts or stipulation may outline the fee allocation, days, and times of the visits.

We also create safe exchanges for the drop-offs and pickups. The last thing we want is your child feeling any anxiety during this part of the process.

Where Do Supervised Visits Take Place?

We supervise the visits in the home or the community. Having the same provider work your case adds some consistency that may help the children.

It adds to the success of supervision, ultimately the children.

Options for supervised visit locations are:

  • Supervised parents’ home
  • Community location
  • Parks
  • Amusement parks
  • Bowling alleys
  • Sporting events, etc.

With each visit, a report is generated. They are very basic as we are focused on monitoring the visit rather than taking notes in order to not miss anything during the visit. We are the eyes and ears for all parties to the case. These reports may be shared with your attorney and read into the court record.

Providing a neutral, trained, empathic, professional supervision experience for all involved is the bottom line. We have been helping families for years and will do so for many more. Here to answer any questions you may have at any point in the process. We are here for all through this potentially traumatic time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Supervised visits can be ordered by the court, or you can request supervised visits independently if both parties agree.

The custodial parent can take the case back to the court and they may allow the non-custodial parent to make up for missed visitations. Ultimately, it is the child or children who miss out.

Colorado does not favor the mother or the father, it rules in favor of the best interest of the child.

A parent can attempt to deny visits to a child and it then has to be taken to court to be determined if that is in the best interest of the child. If a court orders visits the custodial parent may not deny visitation without a reversal of the order.

The custodial parent is responsible for picking up and dropping off, however, the custodial parent may delegate the duty if they choose.

This is something to speak with a lawyer about.

To file for visitation rights in Colorado visit the Colorado Courts Self-Help website found here to begin the process.

A parent can attempt to deny visits to a child and it then has to be taken to court to be determined if that is in the best interest of the child. If a court orders visits the custodial parent may not deny visitation without a reversal of the order.

There is no actual rule on this and the courts can hear the request and determine what is best for the child. Most of the time courts find that at 14 a child is mature enough to provide input on which parent they want to live with.
