California Parental Alienation Laws
What Is Parental Alienation in California?
Parental alienation syndrome (PAS) is the emotional manipulation or bullying of a child by one parent in order to cause him or her to become hostile toward the other parent. This is common in high-tension divorces, especially when the custodial parent is openly hostile to the non-custodial parent.
The Negative Impact of Parental Alienation
Also known as pathological alignment or visitation refusal, parental alienation is considered abusive in some circles because it is akin to brainwashing.
Barring abusive treatment, most children benefit from having both parents in their lives—even on a limited basis. Manipulating children to become estranged from a parent has lifelong consequences and can result in a total loss of connection between family members. The loss of parental ties can even lead to mental illness and physical illness in the long term.
