Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS)

Often, the custodial parent (usually the mother) attempts to eliminate the non-custodial parent from any involvement with the child.  Specific behaviors of alienation may range from refusing to allow visitation to directly disparaging the non-custodial parent to the child and the extended family.  The custodial parent attempts to convince the child that the non-custodial parent a bad person and attempts to turn the child against the non-custodial parent.  Intentional alienation of a parent is emotionally damaging to a child and is taken very seriously by the Courts. 

What is Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS)?

This is the definition of PAS as described by R.A. Gardner who discovered the syndrome and has become an expert in dealing with the issue.

Gardner's definition of PAS is:

"The parental alienation syndrome (PAS) is a disorder that arises primarily in the context of child-custody disputes. Its primary manifestation is the child's campaign of denigration against a parent, a campaign that has no justification. It results from the combination of a programming (brainwashing) parent's indoctrinations and the child's own contributions to the vilification of the target parent."

(Excerpted from: Gardner, R.A. (1998). The Parental Alienation Syndrome, Second Edition, Cresskill, NJ: Creative Therapeutics, Inc.)

One sign of alienation can be intentionally refusing to allow the non-custodial parent visitation or possession of the child.  There are many phases of alienation.  The only way for a parent to guarantee visitation and time with your child is to get a Court Ordered possession schedule.  Failure of a parent to adhere to court ordered possession is a violation of a Court Order and is punishable by CONTEMPT OF COURT.  If a parent violates the Court Order she may be held in Contempt, which can include fines, court costs, attorney's fees, and commitment to the COUNTY JAIL.  BE PREPARED AND CALL US NOW to protect your rights to your child.  972-445-1500.
