Setting Up Visitation and Safe Exchange Services 

  1. Text 423-790-3747 and provide your name and your request to schedule an intake for supervised visitation, therapeutic visitation, or safe exchange services. 
  2. Allow 24-48 hours for a reply.  If no reply is received, please follow up again with a text message. 
  3. An intake will be coordinated and scheduled at a mutually agreeable day and time at our Cleveland Office or Athens Office.  Intakes take between 30 – 45 minutes to complete.
  4. Bring a State Issued ID, any relevant court documents, and $25 (cash or credit/debit) to your appointment.  Both the visiting parent and the custodial parent/guardian are responsible for remitting the $25 intake fee unless there is an agreement or court order providing otherwise.  
  5. Once all parties have completed this process, Solomon Family Solutions will text to coordinate and schedule visitation or exchange at a mutually agreed upon day and time and location.  Solomon Family Solutions offers visitations and exchanges 7 days a week between the hours of 9am – 8pm. 

Fees for Services

Solomon Family Solutions does its very best to keep fees for services as low as possible.  Fees are based upon the visiting parents’ gross household income and will be subsidized by grant funds and donations. Fees are generally the responsibility of the visiting parent unless there is an agreement or court order providing otherwise.

Generally, visitation services may cost between $75 – $125 per hour, but we recognize that this cost is not affordable for most families. So, through the generosity of our community and donors, we are able to subsidize the fees and provide services on a sliding scale. Fees for services may increase based upon our safety assessment or if other special circumstances apply (i.e., offsite location).  Lower hourly fees may be available under limited circumstances and with approval from management. An application and supporting documentation will be required.  If a visiting parent is employed, rents/own a home, has a vehicle, and/or has a private attorney, they will likely not qualify for the additional subsidization of fees. 

Safe exchange service is $20 per exchange at our offices in Cleveland and Athens.  This cost may increase if an offsite location is requested.  We encourage safe exchange fees to be split between co-parents.
