PARENTAL ALIENATION LAWYER
Divorce proceedings are never easy, but they become all the more difficult when a child is involved. Although it is no doubt best for the child that a speedy resolution to custody and visitation disputes is reached, such cases often become heated and result in the separating parents competing against each other in a series of court battles. However, it is important to note that in most intense court proceedings between parents, both parties are acting in what they believe to be the best interest of the child.
It takes a particularly reprehensible character to base their decisions regarding custody and visitation on what is beneficial to them. A tactic commonly employed by such people is parental alienation.
Parental alienation is the act of one parent making a clear and unrelenting attempt to turn their child against the other parent. While one would like to think that the child in question would have the ability to separate fiction from reality, it is important to remember that they are being fed these lies by one of their parents, an authority figure of whom they have no reason to be suspicious. When one parent succeeds in turning their child against their former partner through a campaign of half-truths and blatant lies, the child begins to exhibit signs of what is commonly referred to as parental alienation syndrome.
Parental alienation syndrome is devastating for both the child experiencing it and the parent they have been turned against. Parental alienation is a serious issue and will almost certainly result in the offending party losing any unsupervised access to the child in question.
