Child Specialist

Definition - What does Child Specialist mean?

A child specialist refers to a collaborative divorce professional who develops a relationship with the children of divorcing parents and brings the children's needs to the forefront. This allows the divorcing couple to make decisions related to their divorce while keeping their children’s well-being in mind.

Justipedia explains Child Specialist

In a collaborative divorce, both of the spouses negotiate the issues related to the divorce to reach a settlement. As parents are negotiating a settlement, the interest of their children might get sidelined. A child specialist is hired specifically to protect the best interests of the children. The child specialist spends a considerable amount of time with the children. During this time, they work to understand the children and their specific needs. After assessing them, the child specialist reports back to the parents and helps them make informed decisions regarding the child’s life after the divorce.
