Divorce and following child custody orders might be very stressful if parents are scheduled to attend court hearings where a judge would review parental visitation rights. Is it something new for you and you have no idea what’s going on? How to learn more about numerous court orders and follow them?
If you are a parent looking for some advice, the first thing I would recommend is to visit websites https://www.familieschange.ca.gov/ and https://www.justiceeducation.ca/ where you can find lots of useful information about legal help, tips on parenting, child support, visitations and money management. In addition, some sections of the website https://www.familieschange.ca.gov would be helpful for kids and teens who experience family separation.
Now let’s talk about numerous legal forms. Once a parent received a court order regarding supervised visitations with his or her child(ren), this court order might come out in different forms. There are several types of court orders depending which court they are associated with. All you need to know is the acronym that explains the type of a court order: for example, DV-150 is the name of a court order for supervised visitations, where the DV states for Domestic Violence. Another good example would be the visitation rights FL-341 form that would usually go with the FL-341 (A) attachment where FL would refer to Family Court forms.
No matter, if you have a DV case or just a regular case (FL) with supervised visits ordered by a judge, the forms clearly state information about possible costs for parents, type of Provider, schedule of supervised visits, traveling with children and any transportation responsibilities.

Just keep in mind, a Non-custodial parent would have the right to see child(ren) regardless of any possible issues that need to be addressed separately (for example, not paying child support).
