In high-conflict child custody cases, often one parent is driving the conflict. Whether this parent suffers from a personality disorder, psychological impairment, or simply creates conflict just to spite the other parent, the results can be devastating for the entire family.
Children who are caught up in a contentious child custody battle often experience serious emotional and psychological trauma, and their relationship with both parents usually suffers.
High-conflict child custody disputes may involve any number of parental alienation tactics, including false allegations of child abuse, false accusation of domestic violence, frivolous restraining orders and unapproved attempts to relocate with the child either in-state or out of state.
A Recognized Leader In High-Conflict Child Custody Disputes
Dorie A. Rogers is a knowledgeable Orange County high-conflict child custody attorney with more than 30 years of experience helping families navigate and resolve high-conflict child custody disputes.
She is a board-certified family law specialist with a background in working with children and adults with mental health issues. Because of her impressive credentials and experience, Ms. Rogers is often appointed by courts to represent children in high-conflict custody matters.
Hiring a skilled lawyer early on is the key to successfully navigating a contentious custody case. If appropriate, Ms. Rogers will take control of the situation by seeking immediate court intervention to put a stop to parental alienation tactics.
She will then facilitate reunification counseling/therapy for the parent and child who have been estranged or alienated. If your spouse objects, we can ask the court for a temporary order to allow such counseling to ensure that the child's best interests are protected while the custody dispute plays out.
