Supervised visitation. Defines the term "supervised visitation" as contact between a parent and a child that occurs in the immediate presence of a supervising person approved by the court and under conditions designed to prevent any physical, emotional, or sexual abuse, threats, intimidation, abduction, or humiliation of either the child or the child's custodial parent or guardian. The bill also provides who may not serve as the supervising person and requires that anytime supervised visitation is ordered, it shall be done in compliance with the definition of supervised visitation.
