Sometimes during divorce with children there are situations where one parent will either intentionally or unintentionally attempt to damage the relationship between the child and the other parent. Parents often get so involved in the conflict between each other during divorce that they focus more on “winning” than on what is actually best for the child or children involved. This can be “brainwashing a child” against you or hostile aggressive parenting and is often referred to as parental alienation.
Some signs of parental alienation include the sudden rejection from your child/children without cause or specific event, or a child that refuses to communicate or spend time with you. If you have been able to relate to this then you may in fact be a victim of PAS (Parental Alienation Syndrome) and in need of our help.
The divorce and family law attorneys at Maynor & Associates can, among other things, ask the Court to appoint a psychologist or social investigator to help identify the parental alienation and recommend a course of action to prevent further psychological abuse to your child and help reverse what has already been done so that you can re-establish a healthy relationship with your child.
