Long Island Parental Alienation Attorney
Huntington Divorce & Family Lawyers
Parental alienation is the intentional or unintentional influence a former
spouse may have on the children after
legal separation. What may have begun as an amicable situation in
divorce mediation may have soured over time resulting in one parent interfering in the former
spouse's parenting time, custody or visitation through the child or children.
If one parent discusses his or her negative feelings or opinions about
the former spouse with the child, that child may begin having his or her
own opinion of the other parent colored by these negative emotions. Often,
the child may already have some of his own misgivings or upsets with one
parent in which case the actions of the other parent may simply intensify
those feelings. If this situation sounds familiar, contact a Suffolk County
family lawyer at The Meyers Law Group, P.C. immediately for legal assistance
in protecting your relationship with your children.
Signs of Parental Alienation
Parental Alienation Syndrome is a disorder children can experience as a
result of one parent or guardian’s attempt to alienate the child
from the other parent.
Common signs of parental alienation include:
- Without an explanation, the child no longer wants to visit you
- Your relationship with the child is inexplicably deteriorating
- The child is suddenly blaming you for the divorce or your separation from
the other parent
- The child uses mature and grown up words or phrases to explain why they
no longer want to visit you or why you are to blame- this is often the
result of the other parent continually speaking negatively of you in front
of the child
