Supervised Parenting Time

Supervised parenting time refers to the presence of an employee of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) during a certain parent's scheduled parenting time (visitation).


A judge may order supervised parenting time if there is evidence that a parent has put a child's physical, emotional, or mental health in danger. Likewise, a judge may order supervised parenting time in an effort to enforce that a parent is present during their scheduled parenting time with the child.
