Q: Professional supervisor not supervising visits properly , what should i do?
During a supervised visit, the supervisor could not hear or see the child and non-custodial parent and vice versa. . child got upset and no longer wants supervised visits, especially not with that supervisor. Supervisor's contract states that the child reserves the right to not go to the visitations, with approval through the supervisor. supervisor insisting on face to face talk with the child to give approval, this is not in the contract. can i refuse the face to face? supervisor refuses to talk to child by phone instead. non-custodial parent sees child everyday at custodial parents home. considering supervisor's contract, can i be in contempt if i refuse the face to face visit the supervisor is requesting?
A: The supervisor usually has discretion regarding exactly how to conduct the supervision. Although the supervisor's contract may have some guidelines, the real controlling document is the court order. You may want to raise these issues at a review hearing. You should consult with your attorney about these matters.
