Supervised visitation is judicial order for a neutral third party to be present when a child is spending time with his/her parent. When making a supervised visitation order, a judge may consider a wide variety of factors and goals. Some of the reasons a judge may order supervised visitation include giving the parent time to deal with specific issues, helping reintroduce a parent to a child after a long absence, introducing the parent to the child when there has been no prior relationship, avoiding potential domestic abuse or neglect, or if there is a threat of abduction.
