During a child exchange, the child(ren) is exchanged from the residential parent to the visiting parent. The purpose of the exchange is so that both parties do not have contact with each other. After the child is exchanged with the supervisor, the parent is expected to leave the location immediately. The visiting parent may be asked to wait in a designated location until the supervisor has received the child(ren).
Both parties are required to have a working telephone and/or cell to be contacted by CFV staff. The supervisor will require, both parents to provide information regarding the health of the child to ensure the best care of the child is provided. The residential or visiting parent may ask for a CFV Child-Well Being Form which is explained in the intake packet.
The visit supervisor maintains sight and sound contact with the child and all parties to the visit at all times. This is the highest level of supervision
The visit supervisor is ON SITE and within line of sight OR within hearing distance of the parent-child interaction at all times. The Service Worker will conduct fifteen (15) minute periodic checks where they are able to both see and hear the parent-child interaction. This is medium level of supervision
