Rights Granted a Non-Custodial Parent or Grandparent to Supervised Visits with a Child or Children as Stipulated by a Calfornia Family Court Judge as Part of a Divorce Settlement or a Legal Separation Agreement for a Marriage. Also known as Court Ordered Supervised Visitation Rights.

When are Visitation Rights Established

(1) When Parents can Amicably Reach Agreement on Visitations
Visitation Rights may be established by the Custodial Parent and agreeing Non-Custodial Parent to a visitation schedule or by a court order if the parents are unable to reach an agreement on scheduled visits.

(2) When a Court Judge Determines the Visitation Terms
If an agreement cannot be amicably reached between the parents, the court may intercede. When the court judge determines child visitation rights, it will develop a schedule that both parents and the child or children are bound to abide. This type of “Visitation Rights are also known as “Court Ordered Supervised Visitation Rights.”

(3) When there is Evidence of Potential Child Endangerment
According to the California Courts Judicial Branch, “Supervised Visitation Rights are used when the children’s safety and well-being require that visits with the other parent be supervised by you, another adult, or a professional agency (Monitor).
