8. CURRENT ORDERS REMAIN IN EFFECT REGARDING the domestic Violence restraining order until the amended restraining order after hearing is recieved by the court

my question is DO I HAVE TO BE supervised during my visitation also? or only exchanges is supervise by professional?
The other party saying I have to be supervise in my visitation, but the court order nothing say about that.

but in minute order which the court makes it doesnt say I have to upervise, but it say only exchanges

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . What you show here does not require you to have your visitation supervised. There is a prior order that is "unchanged", so check that one. It appears that only the exchanges are to be via a supervisor, which implies that the other times are not supervised.
