Parental Alienation Syndrome

Brainwashing & Making the Other Parent Look Bad

Divorce is between the two parents, but sometimes a parent will use divorce issues to drive a wedge between the other parent and the child in hopes of destroying the existing relationship between them. Restructuring a family always brings confusion, but healthy parents use their time to reassure their children, not alienate them from the other parent. If you are a mother or father and feel you have been the victim of parental alienation, we at Stolar & Associates, A Professional Law Corporation can help.

Some signs of parental alienation include:

  • Your child acts differently around one parent.
  • Your child "protects" the other parent.
  • Your child starts to really rebel against the visiting party and their family.
  • You are being refused access to school or medical records and schedules.
  • A parent is refusing to be flexible with the visitation schedule.

Beverly Hills Divorce Attorneys Protecting Parental Rights

Most parents are concerned with the best interests of the child—and it is never in the child's best interests to denigrate the other parent. Unfortunately, parental alienation still happens. Being alienated from your parental role is slow and painful. Always keep aware and guard against the wedge, which can be so subtle that you never see it until it's too late.

If parental alienation is happening in your family, we can help you in the following ways:

  • Has your ex made accusations of child brainwashing against you? Do you feel you are a victim of parental alienation syndrome? There are community education programs and seminars that can help you and your ex understand how to interact with your children.
  • Your children need to know about the divorce and the fact that your family is changing. A child should not be used, however, as a confidant to air issues. We have some suggestions about what to tell the children, and we can refer you to appropriate resources.
  • Custody evaluations are an important part of the custody decision process. Our attorneys can guide you through the process and help you prepare for the evaluation interviews.

We want to help you get through this period of time with as little pain as possible. Because our law firm is focused on family law, we have the experience to guide you to the right resources.
