Family Law Counsel “In The Best Interests Of The Child”
Do you suspect that you and your child have been the victims of one or more of these categories of parental alienation?
- Critical comments contained in text messages, social media posts and emails
- Disparaging characterizations of the co-parent in the child’s presence
- False accusations of hands-on and/or emotional abuse of a child
- The other parent portraying him- or herself as the “victim” in conversations with the child about the marriage
- Threats to relocate out of state with the child
- Violating parenting time arrangements or using visitation as a weapon
- Undermining a co-parent’s discipline of a child in order to ingratiate himself or herself
Ironically, parental alienation is itself often considered a form of abuse. If the legal remedy to correct this wrong is a lawsuit, or if you have been falsely accused of alienation, our law firm is fully prepared to advocate for you. During your initial consultation, we can discuss the possible need for input from mental health care professionals such as forensic psychiatrists and custody evaluators, and we can generally chart a course of action that gets to the root of the problem.
