Deer Park Parental Alienation Attorney
Help with Parental Alienation
Divorce no matter how well the spouses control their emotions still has
a traumatic impact on the children of a marriage which is breaking up.
Sometimes emotions get out of hand. Parental alienation, also called parental
alienation syndrome or PAS, is used to describe a situation where one
parent criticizes or denigrates the other parent to their child. This
generally has the effect of causing the child to withdraw emotionally
from the criticized parent. These situations are emotionally painful for
both child and parent and may cause lasting harm to the child. PAS most
often occurs during an on-going divorce action but may also continue or
start up after the divorce is final. If you have reason to be concerned
that your child is being deliberately alienated from you by the other
parent, you need to consult a Deer Park divorce attorney to request assistance
and find out more about your rights.
Parental Alienation Lawyer in Deer Park
Emotions can run high during a divorce. Sometimes one parent will forget
the importance of protecting a child from the stresses and emotional trauma of a
divorce and begin to make negative comments about the other parent to the child.
Telling a child about the other parent's bad acts damages relationships
all the way around. Since the child is emotionally attached to both parents
and lacks the ability to maintain an objective viewpoint such comments
can have a deep impact on a child. Attempting to manipulate a child by
telling negative tales can have a price. A parental alienation lawyer
can take steps to stop this behavior. The family court will consider a
modification of child custody and visitation orders if convinced this
is in the child's best interests.
PAS can have lasting consequences on your relationship with your child
and on your child's emotional development and ability to maintain
close relationships as an adult. Talk to a divorce lawyer at
Dennis M. Slate, Attorney at Law if you suspect your child is being manipulated.
