Family Visitation Centers

Since 1995, the Family Visitation Centers have provided a continuum of services designed to help address custody and visitation issues in families with a history of domestic violence and abuse. Visitation centers are located statewide and offer an appropriate way to provide for safe visitation and exchange, along with flexible visitation alternatives on weekends, evenings and holidays.

The Visitation Centers may be appropriate if:

  • Family Court or the Division of Family Services has determined that use of the Centers are appropriate;
  • A family may be experiencing or have a history of intimate partner violence; or
  • The parents have had a history of hostile or violent arguments during the pick-up and return of their children.

Parents may choose to use the Centers voluntarily or be referred by Family Court, social services, attorneys, victim services or other agencies.


Hours vary by center.  Fees for services are determined by income and are as low as $4.  Public transportation is accessible.
