Supervised and supported meetings

Suomeksi | På svenska

In some sitations a child and a parent living separately can meet each other at meeting places in Helsinki. The meeting places can be used for supervised and supported meetings, as well as supervised exchanges for children living in Helsinki, if the support and supervision is necessary for a grounded reason in the child’s interest.

Supervised and supported meetings, as well as supervised exchanges, are organised based on an agreement verified by a Child Supervisor or a court order, and they are free of charge for clients.

In order to organise meetings, parents must first send the decision or agreement concerning visitation right to Family Law Services via encrypted e-mail. After this, Family Law Unit will make a decision of the service, which will then be sent to both parents. The decision will include the contact information of the meeting place. The parents will have to book an introductory appointment and schedule meetings by contacting the meeting place directly.
