What Is Parental Alienation?

Parental alienation syndrome (PAS) is used to describe a parent’s efforts to negatively affect their child’s relationship with the other parent.

Parental alienation often involves:

  • Speaking negatively about the other parent in front of the child
  • Making up lies about the other parent
  • Encouraging the child to spend less time with the other parent

In many cases, parental alienation is intentional, but sometimes it is simply the exposing of children to one parent’s hostility toward the other.

Warning Signs of Parental Alienation

Parental alienation is a complicated topic with many variables. The court will attempt to discern whether allegations of parental alienation are genuine.

You may be the victim of parental alienation if you notice:

  • Your child is moody around you or refuses to talk to you
  • Your child requests to stay with the other parent
  • Your child speaks highly of their other parent but talks badly about you
  • A significant change in your relationship with your child

Determined to Protect Your Relationship with Your Child

If you are being affected by parental alienation, it is in your best interest to retain an attorney rather than try to handle the situation alone. Accusing the other parent can start a fight and only make things worse.

Our parental alienation lawyers in Brooklyn can petition the court on your behalf. In some situations, it may be necessary to appoint a forensic expert, such as a psychologist or psychiatrist, who can diagnose PAS and testify in court. We may request a more tightly structured parenting time order – possibly including supervised therapeutic visits – that prevents further alienation and provides you increased access to the child. In some cases, we may advocate for a change of custody to help remedy the situation.
