For twenty years, CFS has provided New York City’s children with safe transfers between their parents. Regrettably, many children and families have had no choice but to utilize local police stations for their transfers as no other affordable option existed. In response to this, CFS is proud to announce that there will now be a step-down addition to our existing supervised transfer service.
CFS’s Supervised Transfer Program (STP) offers two supervised transfer options for families and the Court: Monitored Transfers (MT) and Facilitated Transfers (FT). The Supervised Transfer Program (STP) is often viewed as a step down from supervised visitation as the parent and child no longer need the entire visit to be supervised. Through Monitored Transfers, CFS Family Receptionists are available to monitor the child’s transfer between parents and the Supervised Transfer Program Coordinator is able to provide the Court with factual information related to these transfers, such verifying attendance and punctuality.
CFS’ licensed social workers will continue to provide Facilitated Transfers of children during their parental access time. Through Facilitated Transfers, the CFS social worker is available to assist in and support the child’s transition between parents, debrief the child as needed and provide feedback and recommendations in the event of transition difficulties or if areas of concern arise.
Our STP fees are based on your selection of MT (Monitored Transfer by paraprofessional) or FT (Facilitated Transfer by Licensed Social Worker). FT is based on the contracted hourly rate.
MT option is $20 per exchange and all fees must be paid in advance of scheduling Transfer appointments. A one time Administrative fee of $40 is required to commence services and includes an intake session with CFS STP coordinator.
