This article takes issue with recent suggestions that children's voices might best be heard in family law proceedings by means of judicial interviews. Drawing on theoretical and legal literature, case-law and empirical research, it argues that the quest for access to children's ‘true' or ‘authentic' wishes and feelings is misplaced. Rather, there is a need for careful scrutiny of the conditions of production of children's wishes and feelings and the frameworks of interpretation applied in any context, together with consideration of the purpose of judicial interviews with children, and the reasons why this debate has arisen at the present time.
