Parents may agree that both parents maintain custody of the child or that only one parent has custody. In addition, parents must agree on the child’s residence and how the child meets with the parent with whom he or she does not reside. The child’s best interests must always serve as the basis of these agreements. The purpose is to secure the child’s position and contact with both parents.

Description of the Service

A Child Supervisor confirms the custody, residence, and visitation agreement as well as supports the parents in reaching an agreement concerning these matters. When parents cannot reach an agreement about the child’s custody, residence, or visitation, the matter is decided by a district court.

Contact Information

You can contact the Child Supervisor / Family Law Services if you need help with issues concerning your child’s custody, residence, and maintenance.
