Q. Who else is permitted to attend my supervised visits?

A. Unless otherwise restricted within the Court’s orders, CGFS policy allows for relatives and/or significant others to participate in up to half of the visits once the visiting parent / grandparent has established a consistent schedule and the child appears comfortable and is adjusting well to the visits, usually after the first three visits at the discretion of CGFS staff.  All visitation participants will be subject to the same rules, expectations, and restrictions as the visiting parent / grandparent and may have their visitations suspended for violation of CGFS policies.

The custodial parents or adults dropping off / picking up children for supervised visits are not permitted to remain on the premises or within viewing distance of the supervised visit in order to avoid potential conflicts and to ensure privacy and facilitate a comfortable and relaxed environment for the visiting parent and child.
