The Court has Made an Order for Supervised time. What does that mean?
A court will always act in the best interests of the children. The Court may order that your time be supervised if:
- You have no relationship with the children
- Have not seen them for some time
- The Court is unsure whether you have the capacity to care for the children by yourself
- There are allegations of family violence.
Supervised time means that another person will need to be present when you are spending time with the children. This can be a relative, someone known to the family or a professional supervisor at a contact centre.
