This work questions the judicialization of the present life process related to parental alienation and how psychologists have responded to these requests in the judiciary. The methodology is composed by a bibliographical and legislative analysis about the parental alienation and also of semi-structured interviews with Family courts licensed psychologists from the southeastern region of Brazil. The analysis of data was made through content analysis and the results pointed out that the performance of the psychologist should be attentive to an intervention collaboration with those involved in the process, avoiding the reduction of the total of forensic psychological assessments as support for the judge's decision. Therefore, it is considered important the social context and the ethical, technical and political implications of psychological practice in the justice system to be considered in the psychological evaluations.

Keywords : Judicial Psychology; Parental Alienation; Family; Psychological Evaluation.
