Parent Alienation

Pasadena Family Law Attorney

Parent alienation is the unfortunate circumstance in which one parent tries to break the ties and ruin the bond between their child and the other parent involved. An example of this may involve the mother telling their child that their father does not love them anymore. Another example may include the father expressing to the child that the mother cares more about her new boyfriend than them. No matter what the case may be, the family law attorneys at the Law Offices of Makupson & Howard are determined to provide you with the representation you need to defend yourself and see to it that your relationship with your children is not permanently damaged.

Parental Alienation Syndrome

When two parents decide to separate from one another, one parent may consciously or subconsciously create a separation between their child and the other parent involved. This can be done by talking poorly about them, expressing to the child that their parent wants nothing to do with them and overall "brainwashing" them. Overtime, this can create an invalidated dislike or hatred from the child against the other parent involved; referred to as parental alienation syndrome. This syndrome may end up affecting the child for the rest of their life as well as permanently damage their relationship with their parent. It may also cause a reverse effect and cause the child to dislike the parent who tried to cause the separation. Either way, parent alienation is never an easy situation to handle.
