Request for Supervised Contact
Parents are often requested to participate in supervised contact with their children because Magistrates have not yet heard proper evidence.
Whether it be allegations of Family Violence, Abuse, Alcohol, Magistrates will request a conservative approach until tested evidence of these allegations put before the judge.
Both parents will often allege actions that the other party may / may not have done to benefit their case.
Litigation, if you choose that path in your situation, in the Family Court and Federal Circuit Family Court is usually a long road which requires patience and emotional stamina.
Be patient, respect the Court and its processes, and remember to look after yourself.
