Parental Alienation in Family Law Cases

Turn to Experienced Family Lawyers in Southern California

Parental alienation is the emotional manipulation or bullying of a child in order to cause him or her to become hostile to another parent. This phenomenon is most common in high-tension divorce proceedings—especially ones in which a custodial parent is openly hostile to the non-custodial parent.

We have seen firsthand the damage and pain caused by 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 it 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.

If you feel that your spouse is encouraging your child to cut ties with you, turn to our Southern California family law attorneys to intervene on your behalf. We can help protect your relationship with your child. Call (888) 251-9618 today.
