OBSERVATION AND EVALUATION VISITATION
Pursuant to Court Order or on consent of parties, CFS provides Observed and Evaluated visitation. Licensed Social Workers conduct Supervised Visitation for the purposes of observing and evaluating the parent/child interaction and attachment, parenting skills and any other areas of concern specific to each family. CFS provides as many visitation sessions as the Court orders, and these evaluations typicaly include intake interviews of the parties and children. The gathered information is then provided to the Court and can assist in informing custody and visitation determinations. Observation and Evaluations can also assist in identifying areas of intervention into the family dynamic to help assist and stabilize a family in conflict.
