- Visitation Questions
- Can I bring a family member? No- Because of Covid, we are not allowing extra visitors at this time. When Covid restrictions are lifted, not until your request has been emailed in with the added visitor’s name. It then must be approved by the custodial parent.
- Can I bring food, drinks, etc.? DURING COVID RESTRICTIONS, NO. However, when Covid restrictions are lifted, YES. Food, drinks, games are all acceptable. Any WRAPPED gifts or cards must be looked at by the supervisor before the visit begins. No video games, tablets, or cell phones.
- Can I take a picture? No, per the contract, no phones are allowed. You may ask the supervisor BEFORE the visit begins if pictures can be taken. If the custodial parent has approved pictures, then the pictures will be sent to you via email. If the custodial parent has not approved, pictures cannot be taken.
- Can I bring my child’s pet? No – we understand that pets are family, but due to other clients being present who may have allergies, fears, etc., we cannot allow any furry friends.
- Can I change the visit schedule? No – due to an impacted calendar, we will not modify a visitation schedule unless it directly affects the child’s schooling, extracurriculars, or the VISITING parent cannot leave work. It is the CUSTODIAL parent’s duty per the Court Order to make sure the child has reliable 3rd party transportation to and from all visits if they themselves cannot drop off/pick up.
- Things NOT to do during visits:
- No emotionally draining conversation is allowed at any time; For example- statements or comments to the child such as, “Do you miss me?” - “Do you love me?”- “Do you want to come home?” etc.. This puts the child in an uncomfortable and emotionally draining role during the visits and can result in the child not wanting to participate.
- No comments about the other parent or discussion of Court issues are allowed. If the child brings up Court, you may respond with the following or something similar: “That is up to me and your *mom or dad* to figure out. We want you to focus on being a kid and have fun.” Keep conversations subject/age appropriate.
- We ask that ALL custodial parents encourage the child to visit. Please note that everything is noted. If a parent is not encouraging, it will be noted.
- No phones at any time are permitted. If you are waiting on an important call, please let the supervisor know and you will be able to step outside and take the call.
- ENTRANCES AND PARKING FOR VISITS and EXCHANGES:
- Custodial parents must use Shaw or VanNess to enter and exit the East parking lot nearest Dominoes, and they must use the main front door.
- Visiting parents must enter and exit using Hughes Avenue, remaining parked in the West lot area, and use the parking lot/back gate entrance.
- Parties are responsible for giving these instructions to any 3rd party transportation providers.
1) your name,
