Supervised Visitation Safe Zones

In the last two decades, it is evident that we are using technology at a faster pace than ever before. I remember only using the internet to check email, research topics, and talk to friends two decades ago. Today, We can use the internet to buy groceries, clothing, gifts, trading services, etc. There are a myriad of services available at our fingertips when we are linked into the internet. It seems that the internet has become an extension of ourselves, as majority of people are constantly interacting with technology, whether it be on a mobile phone, tablet, iPad, google glasses or other convenient method. 

With the increase in online transactions, we want to remind you parents that if you are looking for supervised visitation services, or custody exchange services, please do your homework and research the individual who you are entrusting the care and safety of your child to. We at Family Care Monitoring Services, Inc. pride ourselves in having experienced monitors that go through the somewhat time-intensive process of registering with TrustLine and Livescan. This is a two step process involving fingerprinting (done electronically) and then sending in an application to Trustline Registry, a database of caregivers who have cleared the criminal background checks in California.

Many parents believe that for custody exchanges, the most safest location is at a police station, but many times the police officers at the station have far more pressing issues to deal with such as homicides and other various crimes and abuse. Many times we have encountered parents giving us questionable looks when telling them that a police station is not the best option for Visitation Exchanges. The reality is that they are not knowledgeable in the Rules of Court , nor are they knowledgeable in the Standards applicable to Supervised Visitation Monitoring or exchanges.

If you are in need of these services, please feel free to contact us at your earliest convenience. Our Service Coordinator, Rusty, will be more than happy to assist you in answering any questions you may have.
