Supervised Visitations & Exchanges

Putting children first, helping families on their journey to recovery.

Supervised Visitation

When families have a history of domestic violence or there is suspected child abuse, a judge will sometimes decide that a third person should be present for any visits between the non-custodial parent and child. Many families choose to schedule these visits with nonprofit agencies as a cost-effective option for families to stay connected.

​Supervised Exchanges

During supervised exchanges, the first parent brings the child(ren) to a trained P2P monitor, the parent then leaves, and the monitor then brings the child(ren) to the second parent where they are released with the child(ren) to enjoy off-site visit time.

What to Expect

Parent 2 Parent (P2P) operates at the Live Violence Free office in South Lake Tahoe. For supervised visitations, visiting parents can share time with their child(ren) that is peaceful and enjoyable. Visits are scheduled for one to two hour(s), and visit rooms are stocked with toys, games, and interactive activities for parents and children to share. P2P monitors will only interrupt the visit when necessary for the child or co-parent’s safety.

During supervised exchanges, the custodial parent brings the child(ren) to a trained P2P monitor, the custodial parent leaves, and then the monitor brings the child(ren) to the non-custodial parent where they are released with the child(ren) to enjoy off-site visit time.

During supervised visits, the child(ren) is escorted into a visit room to enjoy time with the visiting parent. At the conclusion of the visit or during the second half of an exchange, the child(ren) are then escorted by a staff member back to their custodial parent. At no time do parents come into contact.
