If you were granted supervised visitation, you may have a lot of anxieties about the situation and are wondering when you can resume normal parenting. Supervised visitation can present a lot of challenges since it must be at the convenience of your supervisor. More importantly, having another person present can make bonding with your child difficult.
When Does Supervised Visitation End?
There is no set time for how long supervised visitation should last. It ultimately depends on why it was ordered and if you can make the necessary improvements that will allow you to go back to regular visitation.
Supervised visitation often comes hand-in-hand with some court requirements, which might include:
- Attending and completing co-parenting classes or parenting classes
- Completing drug or alcohol addiction treatment
- Going to therapy on your own or with your child
- Maintaining a stable, safe, and healthy environment that is appropriate for your child
Additionally, you should also consider doing the following:
- Be gainfully employed
- Avoid getting involved in confrontations with your co-parent
- Avoid any interactions or altercations with law enforcement
- Fulfill child support obligations if ordered by the court
Supervised visitation can be changed to regular visitation when you successfully show the court that your circumstances have changed since the order was issued. By completing the court requirements and showing that you can provide a safe environment for your child, it is likely the court will allow you to set up a regular schedule of visitation.
Given how high the stakes are in such a case and the importance of resuming normal visits with your child, it is important to hire an experienced attorney to protect your parental rights, so you can maintain a meaningful bond with your child.
