Supervised Parenting Time in a New Jersey Divorce with Child Custody. There are times in a custody matter where it is necessary for supervised visitation to be ordered by the Court. If there are allegations of child abuse or domestic violence, or a current DCP & P investigation, then supervised visitation may be ordered by the Court until the conclusion of the DCP&P investigation and a risk assessment by a psychologist. A risk assessment generally contains a report by a psychologist which states whether or not the parent is a risk to the children in any manner based on their past behavior of child abuse, domestic violence or substance abuse. It may be necessary for a party to also obtain a substance abuse evaluation and drug testing as well in order for supervised parenting time to be terminated. Upon termination of supervised parenting time, a parenting time schedule may be put in place for that parent to have unsupervised parenting time with the children.
