Custodian of Records: Shannon White, MS, LPC-S

How to Get Started

  • Both parties must contact Guardian House and schedule an intake interview to enroll in our services. Staff will NOT contact the other party to schedule an intake interview.
  • All paperwork, required documentation and fees from both parties must be submitted before the enrollment process is considered complete.
  • After the enrollment process is complete and before visitation begins, a Child Orientation will be conducted with each child participating in supervised visitation services.
  • After the Child Orientation is complete, both parties will be contacted by phone to let them know that the non-custodial party may now begin requesting visits.
  • In the event that services do not begin, the intake paperwork will only remain on file for six months. After that, the intake interview and intake fee will have to be completed again to have an active intake, or to start services.

Records

Guardian House uses a third party service to provide copies of client records upon receipt of subpoena. Subpoenas must be hand delivered; faxed or emailed subpoenas will not be accepted. The attorney is responsible for paying fees and coordinating delivery of copies with the third party service. Guardian House is not part of this process.

Upon subpoena, the Custodian of Records will testify or make depositions regarding observations made during visits. For court hearings we request that the Custodian of Records be placed on-call, and be notified 30-40 minutes prior to taking the stand.

Fees for Custodian of Records:

Retainer – $750

Preparation & Coordination – $75
On call – $200/day
Court appearance – $100/hour (includes travel time)

A charge of 35% will be added to the total amount if payment is made with less than three business days prior to the appearance of the Custodian of Records.
