The article describes the experience of listening to children by the Judge - together with the Psychologist - in the judicial proceedings of separation and divorce. It is a procedure consistent with international conventions for the rights of children and adolescents, but it can be considered as an important opportunity for all adults - parents, lawyers and judges - to take into account the voice of children and to converge towards their developmental goals. After reviewing some theoretical principles that make it possible to understand the position of children with respect to parental conflict, the article describes the results of an empirical survey that allowed to detect a high percentage of children who - despite parents’ legal disputes - express the need to maintain an equidistant relationship that guarantees their emotional and social security. Nevertheless, the examples that are described offer a reflection on the risk that the children of divorce find themselves having to propose a role reversal for a long time with respect to adults who do not find a way out of the conflict.
Keywords: Children of divorce, listening to the minor, the best interests of the child.
