Child Alienation Attorney New Jersey
Child alienation can be a very upsetting occurrence when parents are dissolving their marriage by way of divorce or can occur when two parents are simply not getting along. Sometimes a parent is alienating a child without even realizing that they are doing it.
Typically both parents are concerned about the best interest of their child and can agree that speaking negatively about the other in front of the child is not in the child’s best interest.
Unfortunately, there are instances where a parent may use the divorce or the current situation to either attempt to gain the trust and love of their child at the other parent’s expense or attempt to tarnish the relationship of the child with the other parent for a variety of reasons such as jealousy and insecurity. These types of situations can be damaging to a child and the family as a whole.
Parental Alienation Syndrome has sparked a debate over the years as to whether it should be classified as a mental health disorder. Typically they are viewed as a relationship disorder rather than a mental disorder.
However, while some judges recognize this type of alienation, after seeing high conflict cases come before the Court over the years they all remain dedicated to protect the best interest of the children. Due to same, if the Court finds that you or your spouse is purposefully attempting to damage the other parties relationship with the child, harsh consequences may ensue.
