Supervised Visitation and Safe Exchange




Here at Peaceful Solutions Counseling Services we have highly trained staff that provide a home environment for families that are in transition and undergoing stressors. We have a play room and outdoor activities to assist families with one on one time to rebuild relationships and continue communication. Often we receive court orders to faciliate supervised visitations and other times we receive request as part of the divorce proceedings in a family. We offer a variety of options and days. 

 

Our Mission

To provide a safe, comfortable, time and place for children to connect with family

We understand that seeing your child or children is extremely important to you and we want to help you set up a safe visit as soon as possible.

 

We require all participants to attend an orientation meeting (intake) which will help us get familiar with your family and the current supervision needs. At this meeting, we ask that you fill out identifying information and read and sign our policies and procedures so you can have a clear picture of what to expect during visits.  We ask that you bring the following information to the orientation:

- Copy of current court orders

- Copy of any current restraining orders; EPO; DVO

- Copy of current mediation report

- Copy of your drivers license

 

After all the paperwork is received and the orientations are completed, we can schedule the first visit.
