Providers for Supervised Visitation
In every child custody case, the court wants to act in a manner that is in the best interest of the child. Unfortunately, there are some cases where one or both parents are deemed unfit to care for the child due to having a history of violence or other factor that affects parenthood. If this is the case, a parent may be only granted supervised visitations, where a third party stays with them throughout the whole of the visitation period to ensure the child is safe.
When a couple decides to pursue divorce, it can impact many people beside themselves. If you are concerned about your child’s well being and want to talk about supervised visitation, contact a Manhattan Beach custody lawyer at the Law Office of Baden V. Mansfield today at 310-546-5858 and schedule a free consultation.
