Helping Parents Build Positive Relationships With Their Children
No one suffers more than the children involved when a bitter divorce or child custody dispute causes one parent to willfully alienate the children from their other parent. When children are essentially forced to choose sides, they are likely to experience intense psychological and emotional pain.
In many cases, an attempt to alienate one parent backfires on the offending parent. Children exposed to this kind of behavior may feel it necessary to protect the parent being targeted and may also deeply resent the alienating parent.

Certified Family Law Specialist With A Background In Mental Health
Under California law, courts are required to make child custody determinations on the basis of the children's best interests. The court will view negatively any attempts to undermine the other parent or to disrupt his or her relationship with the child. Any such behavior will only work against the offending parent. The most effective way to accomplish your preferred child custody arrangement is to demonstrate cooperation and maturity in co-parenting matters.
Preventing Parents From Alienating Children During Divorce
The primary concern of the courts is ensuring peace and stability for children involved in a custody dispute. Courts are most likely to grant custody in favor of the parent who is more likely to nurture the other parent's relationship with his or her children.
