What exactly is supervised visitation or exchange?
A supervised visitation is when a child is brought to KinShip to see their non-residential parent (the parent they don’t live with). A monitor will sit in the rooms or just outside the rooms to document all conversations and activities. These reports are kept in the family’s personal file and shared with the courts if required.A supervised exchange is when the residential parent drops the child off to be picked up 15 minutes later by the non-residential parent. Exchanges can be anywhere from a couple hours, to days or weeks, depending on what is scheduled. The frequency and length of visitations and exchanges depends on what the court has ordered, the family’s availability, and KinShip’s availability.
