DID YOU KNOW????? With the enactment of Family Code 3200.5, the definition of a "provider" has changed? Providers should use the definition provided in the Family Code (and not the definition of a provider as found in the Standard 5.20) effective January 1, 2013. There are many other areas within Family Code 3200.5 and Standard 5.20 that Providers should be trained in so that they understand the changes that may affect the delivery of court-ordered supervised visitation services.

Please review current legislative discussions regarding Standard 5.20 through measure AB1674. The new law, Family Code 3200.5, became effective on January 1, 2013 and affects Professional and Nonprofessional providers of supervised visitation.

California-based providers are expected to be trained on both Standard 5.20 and Family Code 3200.5 and they should understand the INTENT of these laws.


Be sure to review CASVSP attendance and cancellation policies.
