Abstract: The present study aims to investigate the efficiency of involving the psychologist in hearing minor children in front of the notary or of the judge during a divorce. The process ofthe divorce is a stressing event, in certain cases a traumatic event in a child’s life, frequently burdened by negative feelings. From this point of view, the psychologist’s involvement may bean opportunity for a short-term meeting where parents are given certain information about how to support their child to better overtake such process. The minor hearing procedure in case of divorce is similar to other hearing procedures involving minor children, for this reason it is similarly influenced by certain distortions at the level of the involved cognitive and affective processes, where the psychologist may intercede to monitor the entire process. The specialty literature debates on the opportunity to hear minor children in case of divorce due to certain negative effects on their accommodation to post-divorce life; in such situation, the psychologist may intercede to counteract the side effects and to make children perceive the hearing as helpful in order to adapt to post-divorce life.
