Supervised visitation refers to contact between a non-custodial parent and his or her children in the presence of a third person, called a monitor. The monitor is responsible for observing and ensuring the safety of those involved. The decision to have supervised visitation might be a family agreement in unique circumstances such as introducing a parent to a child after a long absence. Supervised visitation may be a court-ordered arrangement during or after separation or divorce.
Divorce Doctor has resources available to provide highly trained monitors to help a family with supervised visitation. Our professional monitors are able to do visitation appointments at our safe and comfortable facilities, or at myriad other locations that your family may prefer such as parks, sporting events, or family events.

The mediation process can be one of the most helpful tools in finalizing your divorce. It not only saves time and money but can help you avoid a lengthy, destructive court battle. Most importantly, it can help your family come through the process with less resentment and have a Better Divorce.
A divorce mediator is a neutral, unbiased and thoroughly trained and experienced individual whose job it is to assist the divorcing couple in communicating with each other and helping them in understanding and appreciating each other’s needs. All divorce issues can be dealt with at mediation including parenting time, parental responsibility and decision making (education, medical, religion, extracurricular), child support, relocation issues, medical and extracurricular activity expenses, property division (assets and debts), maintenance (alimony), and more.
As a guide, the mediator helps the parties focus on the future, work together to take control of their lives and come to a resolution of the issues and problems that are uniquely theirs. The parties are given the opportunity to make the decisions affecting their lives and the lives of their loved ones and not relinquish those decisions to be made by lawyers, a judge or anyone else. The mediator makes no decisions and gives no legal advice but assists the parties in focusing on the issues, prioritizing their goals and allowing the parties to maintain some type of civilized relationship. The goal of the mediator is to help the parties adapt to the new structure of their family brought about by the divorce not to destroy it.
With the help of a trained mediator, there is an alternative to the stress, aggravation and emotionally charged trail of litigation which can potentially have significant and severe consequences on the family relationships. With mediation, divorcing couples can maintain a civil relationship, mutual respect and keep control of their lives. Mediation can be the better option for a Better Divorce.
