Planet Kids Supervised Visitation & Exchange Center offers a safe, child-friendly environment where court-ordered and voluntary visits between children and their non-residential parents can occur.
The courts believe that children need to have contact with both parents, even when there's been violence. Before Planet Kids, parents exchanged children in public or other unsafe locations, causing great stress to the non-violent parent, not to mention the children who can be caught in the middle. Since Planet Kids began serving clients, law enforcement has reported a dramatic decrease in the number of domestic disputes resulting from parents exchanging children.
