FCCS Staff is trained according to Standard 5.20 and Family Code Section 3200.5.
Facilitated Visitation is Supervised Visitation that includes coaching, direction and modeling to enhance parenting skills and improve the parent-child relationship. Documentation is included.
FCCS works with families who are facing issues related to: - divorce - domestic violence (DV) - abuse - custody - CSD involvement
Getting Started: The Initial Interview
California requires a separate and thorough Interview to be completed with each adult and child who is old enough to participate.
The Facilitated Visitation Coach will:
- gather information about your needs and circumstances - receive copies of Court orders, protective orders and other important documents
The Next Step: The Orientation
After the Interview, an Orientation will be scheduled. This may take a few days or even weeks, depending upon the severity of circumstances and scheduling availability.
The Orientation will provide you with:
- information on how services are provided - guidelines for visits - reasons for termination of a visit - fees - cancellation and late arrival policies - documentation and Summary Report policies - confidentiality limits - how to handle concerns regarding services
Children who are old enough to participate should be included in this pre-visit step. The Best Part: The Visits!
After the interviews and orientations have been complete and your family is approved, your visits can begin. Please note that visits can not begin until the Intake and Orientation have been completed for all adults involved.
After initial intake and orientation are complete, and if the Court Order allows, visits may happen in the community.

Please Note: Supervised Visitation is NOT therapy. For information on Therapy Service, check here. Supervised visitation is not mediation. Your Monitor cannot get involved in the personal emotions, frustrations and/or relationship complaints that are often present in a divorcing or ineffective co-parenting situation. Those issues should be addressed with the Court, your attorney, mediator, therapist, and/or other professional. A Monitor's job is to remain neutral and provide a safe visitation experience. Custodial and Visiting Parents must each follow SV guidelines.
