Vigorous Representation In Parental Alienation Cases
When parents divorce, they face extremely difficult, complex decisions regarding their children’s future care and upbringing. Mothers and fathers sometimes have very different views of the custody and visitation arrangements that will give their kids the best opportunities for stability and happiness.
In some cases, a parent engages in behaviors that are unfair to the other parent and potentially very harmful to children’s relationships and emotional well-being. Debate about whether Parental Alienation Syndrome is a legitimate psychological problem is ongoing. What is certain, however, is that some people try just about everything to ensure that their kids are on their side in divorce and custody disputes.
