The divorce coaches of CDANJ showed a documentary 20 minute film called “SPLIT” produced by Ellen Bruno. The subject was Divorce Through Kid’s Eyes. Joseph C. Noto, a Bergen County divorce lawyer, attended the session held on Monday, March 16, 2015, by the collaborative law group called the Collaborative Divorce Association of North Jersey,(CDANJ). It was presented to its Group members of which he is a member and director.  There were sixteen (16) brief scenes of children, ages from 6 to 12 years old, all of whom are children of a divorced family. The children also did the cartoons in the film which were very informative as well. Joseph C. Noto said you really learn how children feel after a divorce. Many parents are in denial as to what their children are feeling when they are going through a separation. The collaborative law process has as one of their Team members a Child Specialist who meets wth the child(ren) BEFORE the parenting plan is worked out. The collaboratively trained Child Specialist is the spokesperson for the child(ren) and.usually within one or two sessions has a good feeling of how the children feel regarding the separation. The Child specialist then updates the Team and the parents about how the child(ren) are handling the separation. Joseph Noto said he learned that the Child Specialist is used REGARDLESS of whether the child(ren) are troublesomebergen county divorce attorney joe noto esq. or not.
