Signs of Parental Alienation
Parental alienation can be sometimes difficult for parents to identify.
Divorce is almost always a significant transition for children and it's
normal for a family to experience some temporary changes in its internal
relationships. However, there are telltale signs that, if consistent and
pronounced over time, can be indicative of a deliberate attempt to hinder
a child's relationship with one parent.
Common indicators that child has experienced parental alienation include:
- Uncharacteristic disrespect (including insults, swearing, etc.)
- Echoed behaviors or words of the other parent
- Refusals to keep in regular contact (emails, phone calls, etc.)
- Negative attitudes towards the affected parent's extended family
- Knowledge of issues between parents that did not involve the child
- Destruction of gifts given to the child by the affected parent
These are just some of the many signs that parental alienation has occurred.
Often times, these cases require the expertise of a family or child psychologist
to help substantiate any wrongdoing. The Law Office of Bryan Fagan is
ready to work with proven experts in the field and ensure that your case
has the resources it needs to be resolved as quickly and favorably as possible.
