Signs of Parental Alienation


Sometimes one parent (the alienating parent) tries to influence the child/children against the other parent (the target parent) by undermining the target parent so the child/children show unwarranted fear, disrespect, or hostility toward the target parent and that parent’s family. This is parental alienation. Long Hagan Huff-Harris has represented many target parents.

If you are the targeted parent, it is extremely important to seek legal advice and help as quickly as possible. Parental alienation happens almost exclusively in cases involving divorce or paternity. The alienating parent is working hard to exclude you from your children’s lives by manipulating them to reject you. The damage to a child can be devastating and, in some cases, irreparable.

Many probate and family courts view parental alienation as a serious form of child abuse. Children who have been alienated from one parent have a much higher risk of physical and mental illness throughout their lifetime. Parental alienation can be as difficult to prove as it is harmful, however. Long Hagan Huff-Harris attorneys are effective advocates for target parents. A divorce attorney with experience handling parental alienation cases can make the difference between a child having one parent or two.
