SERVING TORONTO, THE GTA AND BEYOND VIRTUAL SESSIONS AVAILABLE
Views of the Child Reports (also known as Voice of the Child Reports)
Now more than ever, children want to be heard!
This service is a helpful way for children to have a voice in their parent's separation/divorce court proceeding. It provides the parents and court with the child(ren)'s views and preferences in relation to family matters, often promoting settlement negotiations. This service is relatively non-intrusive, inexpensive and brief (approximately one month), and can be court-ordered, or agreed upon by the parents.
The process typically involves reviewing relevant documentation and conducting interviews with each child over several weeks. The child(ren)’s views and preferences are canvassed about a number of subjects within the context of the separation and divorce. A brief Report is then completed, and provided to the parents and, if applicable, their counsel and court.
