Walnut Creek Parental Alienation Syndrome Attorneys

Family Law Attorneys Helping To Minimize Parental Alienation Syndrome

In a divorce proceeding where children are involved, the issues are between the two parents, but the children bear the bulk of the emotional weight. Unfortunately, some marriages are so toxic that the end is not really the end: parents may try to manipulate their children to damage their ex-spouse or partner in what is known as parental alienation, a form of child brainwashing.

Changing the family structure almost always involves pain and confusion, but healthy parents work hard to reassure their children, not alienate them from the other parent. If you are a mother or father and feel your children are being subjected to manipulation that is destroying your relationship by the other parent, the attorneys at Kaspar & Lugay, LLP, have the experience you need to understand the law in this area and make your case.

Call 415-789-5881 or contact us online to schedule a consultation with our experienced family lawyers.

Some signs of parental alienation include:

  • Children acting differently around a parent.
  • Children defending or protecting one parent.
  • Children rebelling against a non-custodial parent or visiting family.
  • Parents being refused access to school or medical records.
  • Aggressive and unreasonable demands around visitation schedules.

Protect Your Rights by Remaining Vigilant

Most parents are concerned with the best interests of the child?and it is never in the child?s best interests to denigrate the other parent. Unfortunately, parental alienation still happens. Being alienated from your parental role is slow and painful. Be mindful of any shifts in the behavior of your children towards you, which can be so subtle that you never see it until it?s too late.

Does the concept parental alienation have you confused? Kaspar & Lugay, LLP, can help

  • Has your former partner or spouse made accusations of child brainwashing against you? Do you feel you are a victim of parental alienation syndrome? There are community education programs and seminars that can help you and your ex understand how to interact with your children.
  • Your children need to know about the divorce and the fact that your family is changing. A child should not be used, however, as a confidant to air issues. We have some suggestions about what to tell the children, and we can refer you to appropriate resources.
  • Custody evaluations are an important part of the child custody decision process. Our attorneys can guide you through the process and help you prepare for the evaluation interviews.

Safeguarding the relationship you have with your children is of the highest priority. Our experienced north bay child custody and support lawyers can help you understand your rights if you feel you are the victim of parental alienation. Call us today at 415-789-5881 or contact us online today.

Update: Case Closed! I just want to say thank you to the whole Kasper and Lugay Team! Brent got The “W” in my case. They worked hard on my child custody battle and were super flexible with my payments! Anyone that’s going through a separation knows the stress courts can bring, but Brent and his team made sure to make everything fast and easy as possible for me! Thank You Again! I hope I never have to go through something like this again but if I ever do I know who to call!

I hired Brent Kaspar & his team to assist me in the dissolution of marriage from my wife of 9+ years and love for 14+ years. This is obviously not any type of experience anyone want to go through, however I wanted the best direct & logical approach as the emotional & financial sides of this transition are difficult enough. Brent impressed me immediately with his knowledge of the process as well as his experience with every local attorney, mediator, judge, and whomever else I may be faced with addressing.... I would want him on my side.

My case was not simple or easy. After 5 years, my ex-husband, decided to try and terminate all alimony on a 26 year marriage, as well as obtain funds from me....The process with Brent Kaspar and this entire group was very thorough as well as methodical to achieve the end goal. Although there is always a high amount of stress when dealing with any legal matter, these individuals as are excellent at their jobs, relentless on getting information, light hearted when need be, and strong willed when dealing with others legal nonsense. We were able to settle prior to court and obtain/protect what I intended.
