It almost never happens in North Carolina that the non-custodial parent is denied any visitation time with a child. If the judge is persuaded,however, that a child may come to some harm or danger if visitation is not monitored, the judge can order that visitation be supervised. Supervised visitation sometimes occurs in the visiting parent's home. The supervisor in such a location might be another judges to order no visitation for the secondary parent. In cases where one parent proves the child may be in some danger from the other parent, however, the judge might provide that all visitation will be supervised by either a relative or an unrelated third party such as a social worker in a protected setting. If visitation begins as supervised visitation, the order may provide for a phase-out of supervision once the suspect parent has proven him- or herself to be more reliable or consistent around the child.
