What is Parental Alienation? - Family Lawyer Massachusetts

Parental Alienation

A number of family law cases involve children taking part in camera interviews with a judge to discuss which parent they want to reside with along with disclosing their feelings about each parent. While this can be a useful tool for the court system, it can also involve a child repeating negative views or comments about one parent over the other based on misinformation or intent of one parent to alienate the child from the other. There are varying degrees of parental alienation and has been slowly becoming a problem that most people don't know about. It is viewed by some as a form of child abuse. This type of strategy posed by parents can give children an unsettled and emotional traumatic feeling. They may feel guilty for many years and some suffer toxic effects between the relationship with child and parent. The courts may intervene if there is blatant or unlawful use of parental alienation, such as physically keeping a child from having contact with a parent.

Family Law Basics

Family law encompasses a wide range of specialties pertaining to divorce and domestic legal issues. Each situation that requires the representation or advice of an attorney is as unique as each family is. While there are certain laws and formulas that are part of the court system to protect assets, future finances, and a family's rights, each case is different. Therefore, the unique factors involved can greatly affect the outcome of any family law case. The necessity for law firm’s advice or representation crosses all social and economic lines.

  • Divorce or annulment, including civil unions, domestic   partnership, and same sex marriage
  • Alimony
  • Custody, parental alienation, and child support
  • Adoption and paternity  Spousal or child abuse

Tips for Choosing a Family Law Attorney

There are a significant number of factors to consider when choosing an attorney. It is important to check the professional credentials and licenses of any attorney before hiring them. It is also advisable to factor in that attorney's expertise in family law and their experience as an attorney in general. Professional affiliations can also tell potential clients where a particular lawyer focuses their attention and who they affiliate themselves with. It is also generally advisable to check references and recommendations so as to gauge the likelihood of a favorable outcome. Costs are naturally a factor in deciding on a family law attorney.
