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. 

Best Practice Guidance

California providers may not use the term certified when describing their own qualifications and/or the services that they provide.

Therapeutic Supervised Visitation is not a legal service in California.  Revision to Standard 5.20 as it relates to therapeutic visitation was effective January 1, 2015. Therapeutic Supervised Visitation was repealed - this means that this is no longer a valid service in California. Court order form FL-341(a) was revised to exclude the option to select this type of service as an option for supervised visitation.

There are only two types of providers: (1) Professional Provider and (2) Nonprofessional Provider.  Providers using language such as "child visitation monitor" are inconsistent with the language of Family Code 3200.5 and Standard 5.20.  Revision to Standard 5.20 as it relates to types of provider was effective January 1, 2015.
