A: I agree with my colleagues. There are many reasons for court order supervised visitation. The standard is always what is in the best interest of the child; this is what is paramount and top of mind in the court's eye. The court looks at all circumstances and details that surround the visitation and the parties involved.

It is best to consult an attorney who can help you maneuver through this process and assess your case personally.

We are glad to assist you.
