Contentious marital separations affect children and may require legal intervention. The aim of this article was to assess the relevance of psychotherapeutic intervention in families under supervised visitation by the technical team of the judicial units of family, women, children and adolescents of Ambato, Ecuador, from July 2020 to July 2021. A research with a mixed, non-experimental and descriptive approach was implemented with a population of 10 files of families under visitation supervised by the judicial entity. Sources from the following scientific databases were used: SciELO, Dialnet, Wiley Online Library, Latindex and MIAR for the theoretical basis. In addition, the nominal group technique was applied with 11 expert psychologists. As part of the results, it was determined that 90% of the families resided in urban areas and 80% had only one child. The average age of the children was 6.92 years. Fifty-five percent of the parents had a higher level of schooling, 90% of the visitation regimes were two hours a week, and the same figure was for custody assigned to the mother. Eighty percent of pensions were less than US$261. Fifty percent of court rulings indicated psychotherapeutic interventions. The conclusions identified multiple causes and consequences of the family crisis that required judicial intervention. The participating specialists considered that psychological interventions were necessary to safeguard the mental health of the children, involving care units of the Ministry of Public Health and with regulations focused on legal grounds.
