MISSION

The mission of CASVSP as a statewide association of professionals in California is to represent, assist, promote, and support the delivery of supervised visitation services through quality leadership, training, collaborative partnerships, and compliance with professional standards of conduct and best practices.


ARE YOU AWARE?

Effective January 1, 2015, Standard 5.20. Uniform standards of practice for providers of supervised visitation eliminated therapeutic supervised visitation as a type of supervised visitation provider. This means you are no longer able to provide this service. If you are currently engaged in an order for therapeutic supervised visitation:

  • suspend services immediately
  • list your reasons for suspension in writing
  • refer your client back to their legal representative and/or the court that issued the order.

    This change was approved to be consistent with Family Code 3200.5, which recognizes only two types of providers: (1) Non professional and (2) Professional. In addition, the Judicial Council Form, "Supervised Visitation Order (FL-341A)," was revised (effective January 1, 2015) to eliminate the reference to therapeutic supervised provider. For additional information regarding this service/provider elimination, contact your local Family Court Services Department and/or the California Access to Visitation Grant Program Manager, Shelly LaBotte.

    For more information, be sure to register for the April 2, 2015 Webinar:
    Moving on from Therapeutic Supervised Visitation.

    PROVIDERS ADVISORY

    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.
