    The diploma work represents the process of a divorce or separation through perspective of children, who have experienced the divorce or separation of their parents. In the theoretical part, families and changes in the forms of family life, the child’s experience of his or her parents divorce, the relationship between parents and children in the time of their cohabitation and in the event of a divorce are described. Possible forms of help to children after the divorce of their parents are also described in this part. The empirical part uses the qualitative analysis of four interviews, by which a more integrated insight into the child’s experience of the process of a divorce is represented. Four children of age thirteen to fifteen, whose parents divorced, were interviewed. Results are represented in the following content sections: family life before the divorce, the child’s experience of the process of a divorce, changes or consequences of the divorce, relationships and organization of family life after the divorce, child’s relations with the absent parent, child’s experience with the new partner of his or her parent, child’s elements of support and perspective on the divorce or separation of his or her parents. The survey confirms that a divorce affects and disturbs all family members. Duration of child’s adjustment to the divorce depends on his or her parent’s behaviour in the time of the divorce. Children who witness parent’s hostility and anger adjust much longer to the divorce and they also have emotional and behavioural problems.
