I would like to introduce myself, my name is Christine Carlson of “A Caring Visitation and Transportation Monitoring Service. In cooperation within the guidelines given by the courts under standard 5.20 and 3200.50 “Supervised visitation is contact between a noncustodial party and one or more children in the presence of a neutral third person.”
As your Supervised Visitation Monitor (SVN), my responsibility is to ensure that each child’s health, safety, emotional state and welfare are the top priority. I expect each party to abide by the parents rules of conduct listed in the documents. I will work to effectively set limits with both parties, Requesting the parents always keep their opinions, hostilities and negative comments out of the presence and hearing of the child/ren. By your providing your child/ren with a positive and stable environment before, during and after the visit, allows them to be less affected by the situation. My Motto is “ we only have one childhood, let’s allow our children to have the best one possible.”
"I couldn't have possibly hoped for a better supervisor than Christine. She is very professional, prompt, and highly positive in her role as a visitation supervisor. Whether it is a trip to Legoland, dinner in a restaurant, or a day in my home, Christine always strives to make a quality and loving visit with my children as possible. She is absolutely wonderful with children, and my own kids very quickly began to see her as a cheerful and friendly woman whom they looked forward to seeing on visits with me. She gets my highest recommendation and thanks."

"Thank you so much for your incredible service to the kids the past 2 1/2 years. You are such a great part of their lives, and I believe you will always be a bright shining part of their memories their whole lives.
When this whole journey started, I remember being afraid of choosing "the wrong person" from list of 3 monitors. But when I called and spoke to you on the phone, I knew that my children would safe with you. It has been such a relief to be able to leave them with their dad, knowing they are safe with you.
You have also helped develop a sense of truth & confidence in not only both my children but also myself. None of us were quite sure of how to talk about divorce & sharing time. You helped equip us by sharing truths that helped clarify situations I was unsure of how to vocalize. In a sense, you strengthened my relationship with my kiddos as well.
I hope we can stay in touch. The kids sure love you!"

"I wanted to reach out before too much time has passed and thank you for being a part of my families life and story. Things couldn't be better right now between the kids Mom, my kids and myself. The kids have responded extremely positive to the visit changes and the interaction between the kids Mom and I has been such a positive change for us all. Thank you so much for everything. I so greatly appreciate what you do and how amazingly positive the entire experience was. I wish you and you family the very best of luck.
Thank you and take care,

My desire is to respect the valuable time that each parent has during a visit and to make the parent and child/ren as comfortable as possible. To effectively set limits with both parties and to enforce court orders. As the Visitation Monitor, I will schedule visits to observe and document the behavior of the Custodial parent (CP) and Non-Custodial parent (NCP)’s interactions with the child/ren during the scheduled visits.
