Please contact Central Visitation Program by phone at 303-839-8701 or email at email@example.com in order to obtain the necessary documents.
ORIENTATION: Once all of the documentation has been submitted by BOTH parties. Central Visitation Program will contact them individually to set up separate Orientation appointments.
The purpose of the Orientation appointment is to gain a better understanding of the case and the needs of the child for visitation or exchange services and to review the rules and expectations of CVP. Orientation appointments generally last between 30-60 minutes and a $20 fee is required at the time of Orientation. Fees are paid by each party unless the court order specifies one party pays all the fees associated with supervised visitation or safe exchanges.
Parents are asked to bring in payment for the Orientation and a photo ID. Orientation may be completed at the Denver, Brighton, and Aurora locations, but please note that the Brighton and Aurora offices are only open on weekends.
Phone Orientation appointments are also available for individuals who are outside the Denver Metro area. Please let the staff know that this arrangement is needed when you submit the documentation.
FEES: CVP provides services to all families, with a sliding scale available for those who qualify. Proof of income is required to qualify for the sliding scale. Fees range from $30-$60 for supervised parenting time and are $20 for safe exchange services. Unless stated otherwise in the court order, the party visiting the child is responsible for the supervised parenting time fees.
Payment is requested before the visit starts. Clients who do not make a payment after 2 consecutive visits will have their visits suspended until payment is made. Parents that cancel a visit with less than 24 hour notice without valid proof will be charged for the missed visit. This rule applies to both parties.
Central Visitation Program accepts cash, check, money orders and credit/debit cards for payment. CVP will charge $25 for a returned check fee for nonsufficient funds and no longer accept checks from the client if a NSF check is presented.
HOURS OF OPERATION: Central Visitation Program is open 7 days a week between its locations in Denver, Brighton, and Aurora. The hours are as follows and are subject to change. Always contact the office to verify office hours. The offices are closed for major holidays.
Brighton CVP Offices Saturdays and Sundays 9 am – 5 pm
Aurora CVP Offices Saturdays 9 am – 4:30 pm
SCHEDULING VISITS: A visit time will be offered once both parties have provided all necessary documents, completed an orientation, and the staff has had a chance to look at the schedule and find a time that works for everyone. CVP has a waitlist, and it can be anywhere between 2 to 6 weeks before visits will start. Flexibility is key in scheduling – weekends are very full and will usually result in a longer wait time for visitation. CVP only offers on-site visitation services at this time. All visits begin at 1 hour once per week, regardless of the amount of time granted in the court order. Additional time may be available depending on the availability in the schedule and on the condition that the Executive Director has determined that visits are proceeding successfully. Priority is always given to new families who are starting supervised visitation before granting additional time to current families.
CVP will offer a set day and time for parenting time. Once a day and time are agreed upon by both parties, this will be their regular visitation time. Schedules may vary based on the needs of the family, availability of staff, and the provisions of a court order or parenting plan.
Both parents are expected to comply with the schedule. Parents must notify CVP in advance of delays or cancellations, and CVP may terminate services for excessive delays or cancellations by either parent. Parents are charged for canceled visits if notice is given within 24 hours of the visit time. CVP reserves the right to report parties who are not complying with CVP rules to their attorney and/or the courts.
