Many circumstances in domestic cases, consequently, lead to a situation where a court orders that one party’s visitation with his or her minor children be limited to supervised visitation by a professional third party.
Oklahoma statute, under the Oklahoma Child Supervised Visitation Program (Okla. Stat. tit. 43, § 110.1a (2004)), provides that the associate district judge of each county may create a supervised visitation team to (a) identify entities which will provide a place for visitations to occur, (b) identify individuals willing to serve as third-party visitation supervisors, and (c) establish training requirements for volunteers. However, it seems that the majority of counties in Oklahoma have failed to establish such teams. Therefore, we’ve provided this page to help those trying to exercise their supervised visitation rights.
Licenses for Oklahoma Visitation Supervisors:
There is no official licensing or accreditation authority for supervised visitation in Oklahoma. Thus, each district court has the opportunity to facilitate a process by which visitation supervisors can be approved; however, few, if any, district courts have done this. There is though a national non-profit organization, known as the Supervised Visitation Network, that has created standards for supervised visitation, to which many providers listed below subscribe.
