Parental Alienation

Parental Alienation

Parental alienation is a very real problem that affects countless parents and children every year.  Typically following a contested divorce or separation, one parent may try to alienate the children from their other parent, usually in an attempt to gain an upper hand during a child custody battle.  As a result, the children become brainwashed into resenting their other parent, ultimately affecting the quality of the relationship. 

If you think your child might be a victim of parental alienation, you should consider speaking with a family law attorney who can review the situation and provide you with practical advice and legal options.  By speaking with an attorney at our office, you can gain a better understanding of the situation, as well as what can be done to correct the problem.

Signs of Parental Alienation

Many times a parent can tell that something is "off" about how their child is acting, or may suspect that something is wrong but cannot determine what that something is.  There are several signs that may indicate your children are being manipulated or brainwashed by their other parent, such as:

  • They may no longer wish to spend time with you
  • They seem more distant and withdrawn
  • They've started to blame you for the divorce or separation
  • They've started snapping at you about even the smallest things
  • They seem angry at you all the time
  • You've noticed their attitude towards you has changed for the worse
  • Your relationship with your children is suffering overall

  • "I absolutely loved Maria. She helped me a lot and fought hard against the other attorneys. She works hard for her clients and is extremely dedicated. I met with with other attorneys prior to hiring Maria. They were not as aggressive as she was. I would highly suggest Maria."
