Work Life Balance:

We are all trying to understand and cope with the enormous changes in our work and personal lives. Mostly we react in a positive and productive manner. However, many attorneys are describing their lives as so busy, working so many hours, that they often feel physically and emotionally exhausted.

Balancing your work and personal life requires being clear on your purpose, mission, and values. It is really self-management . The way you keep balance in your work and life is to set priorities and focus on what is truly most important.

Supervision and Monitored Visitation

Supervised visitation is when a parent spends time with their child with a neutral third person (provider) watching and listening during the visit. There are many reasons that a judge may require supervision. For example, it can be ordered when:

  • There are safety issues, like allegations of domestic violence, child abuse, or child abduction
  • A parent wants to spend time with a child that they’ve never had a relationship with or they’ve been apart from
  • There are safety concerns because of drug or alcohol use or mental health issues

What is a provider? 

A “provider” is a neutral third person that is ordered by a judge to watch and listen to every visit with the child. The provider is there to make every effort to keep your child safe. The provider must: 

  • Be present at all times during the visit 

  • Listen to what is being said 

  • Pay close attention to the child’s behavior 

  • Report any suspected child abuse 

  • Feel comfortable interrupting or ending the visit if they have concerns
