Orlando Supervised Visitation and Monitored Exchange Program

Deborah O. Day, Psy.D - Saturday, April 29, 2017


Divorce, separations, and co-parenting can be very distressing. Two people decide, for whatever reason, to separate, or choose to not be together for the greater good. When you are a parent and children become involved, it gets even stickier. There are a number of reasons for separation, and the best reason of all, is that many people are simply not a good combination. Sometimes it is easier to be a better-quality parent when you are not with the co-parent in a relationship. Through Divorce and separations, emotions come into play, and people find it very challenging to try and keep emotions out of the child custody and visitation process. However, more often than not, visitation, custody, and exchange becomes heightened with emotions; especially when one parent has to see the other parent. It takes a long time to heal from emotional wounds, even when two people no longer love one another. Most divorces take place when the two parties still love one another, or at least one of the parties is still in love. That said, it is not a surprise that seeing that person, your ex-spouse, can become very emotional. Sadly, the children tend to get caught in the middle of all those emotions. At Psychological Affiliates, a practice of psychology in Orlando, FL., they specialize in making this entire process much smoother, and healthier for everyone involved. From separation and divorce, to visitation, the partners and associates seek to educate through divorce education programs they offer, in addition, they offer services like Orlando Supervised Visitation and a Monitored Exchange Program. In some cases, a court will order these modifications in the court decree. On the other hand, many people do not think that their personal situation will need this kind of extra attention at the time of divorce. In cases such as those, parents will seek modifications after the original court decree is ruled.


Why Might There be a Need for a Monitored Exchange Program?



There is no shame in desiring a smooth process when exchanging children from one parent to the next. Monitored exchange programs are not always about rectifying a bad situation. Monitored exchange programs are there to ensure that the children remain stress-free, and the environment is conducive to a positive demonstration of behavior for all parties. If there is fear expressed by one or both parents in a court of law, a judge may enforce a monitored exchange program to take extra precaution. However, each case may have similarities, but a judge can modify the requirements per a situation. Not all cases are open and shut.


Why Would There be a Need for Supervised Visitation?



There are a number of reasons a parent may request supervised visitation. If a judge rules that supervised visitation is deemed a necessity, the judge has a strong reason of precaution to do so.

Drugs or Alcohol- When one parent is presumed the use drugs or use alcohol excessively, or around the children in which they would put the children at risk for unsafe situations, a judge may rule in favor of a court ordered supervised visitation order.

Violence or Abuse- Violence or Abuse of any nature, can stimulate an investigation into a parent. This can also occur for both parents. In cases such as these, a judge may rule for supervised visitation. This may be enforced whether there is concern for the child’s safety, as well as if there is previous documentation of abuse toward the opposing parent. A monitored exchange program may also be put into place as a requirement by the court in order to have visitation schedules met. Documentation may include, but is not limited to; restraining orders, police reports, court documents, Attorney General case documentations, and any type of previous documentation of violence or abuse. This may also include psychological evaluations, and rehabilitation evaluation documents.


Rest Assure


The main point of all of the programs and court orders of this nature, are to ensure safety for all parties involved, and to make sure that the proper behavior is demonstrated. Children often times get caught in the crossfire and are even used as leverage by some parents in attempt to hurt the other parent. Reading an article of this nature and hearing actual case history with topics such as this, in the light of day, can be a real eye opener; as they should be. When people allow emotions to rule their behavior, they do not always think clearly. Sometimes just seeking outside help, a third party to come in and counsel through the divorce process, can really help parents understand the most important part of the process is that their children remain safe and emotionally healthy.
