In the collaborative divorce system we can use the services of a child specialist. The child specialist is a mental health professional who specializes in dealing with children. Their job is to meet, speak, and support your children during the divorce because it is difficult for them to understand the feelings they have and it’s difficult for to communicate with their parents. The child specialist will make recommendations to the parents as to what he or she feels is going on and what the children may need. This is an enormous help in the collaborative process because it permits the child specialist to speak about what the child needs so the child has a voice.
