Reach out through our Contact page to confidentially discuss supervised visitation or safe exchange services.
There are various reasons a parent may be ordered to undergo supervised visitation. A court may feel the parent-child relationship needs to be established or restored and the child needs time to comfortably adjust. There may be allegations of physical or psychological abuse resulting in a court order for supervised visitation out of caution for the child’s safety and well-being. Regardless of the reason visitation must be supervised, Rachel’s primary focus is the child’s safety and enjoyment of the time he or she spends with the visiting parent.
In addition to providing litigation support for contested child custody and visitation cases for the last 20 years, Rachel is a certified lay Guardian ad Litem, and has received training in handling high conflict personalities in relation to family court matters.
