Supervised Parenting Time
If a court finds that parenting time with a parent is likely to endanger the child’s physical or emotional health or impair the child’s emotional development, the court may restrict parenting time with a parent as to time, place, duration or supervision and may deny parenting time entirely, as circumstances warrant.
Similarly, parties can agree that for the same reasons, a parent’s time with a child must be supervised by another willing adult.
The safety and well-being of a child is one of the most important issues that can occur in a divorce proceeding. If you are involved in a divorce where a child’s safety is in jeopardy and do not believe that child is being properly protected, you should consult with an experienced divorce attorney.
