Legal Representation for Parental Alienation Cases in NYC

Issues of parental alienation are complex. Determining whether rejection of a parent is the result of parental alienation is the key to applying legal remedies to this issue. Some indicators of parental alienation are:

  • A child making accusations that are obviously rehearsed, using adult language;
  • Sudden hostile behavior towards a parent for frivolous reasons;
  • No remorse felt for cruel behavior toward the alienated parent;
  • Hatred and dislike extending to relatives of the alienated parent;
  • The child rejects one parent and refuses visitation;
  • One parent consistently blocking access to the child despite custody agreement.

The Family Courts will curb cases of parental alienation and these actions could be considered a form of child abuse. Whether it is the result of an emotionally challenged parent seeking revenge, or an unintentional result of heated arguments in the presence of the child, the result is disruptive and negative. We are sensitive to the nature of child custody. You must protect your parental rights in a manner that is reduces the emotional impact the child and results in your ability to participate in raising your child after divorce.
