Protecting Your Parental Rights | Parental Alienation Advocacy

Divorce is never easy. It is even more difficult when children are involved, especially when custody battles turn contentious. Parental alienation is a term that is used to describe what happens when one parent attempts to "turn" his or her child against the other parent. This behavior is harmful to all parties involved. Fortunately, there are legal actions that can be taken to stop it. At the Law Offices of James V. Sansone in California, we will use our extensive family law experience to help protect your rights and the rights of your children.

What Is Parental Alienation?

Parental alienation occurs when one parent consistently bad mouths or insults the other parent to the child in an effort to poison the child's relationship with the other parent. This goes beyond the normal stress and frustrations that may be expressed during the divorce process or custody process.

Parental alienation involves an effort by one parent to prevent the child from seeing the other parent, or instilling the child with such fear that he or she does not want to see the other parent. We can help put a stop to this destructive behavior.
