Livingston Parental Alienation Lawyer

Defining Parental Alienation in New Jersey

Ideally, divorcing parties will act in the best interests of their child(ren) and cooperate with their former spouses to ensure that both parents maintain a healthy parent-child relationship. However, in many cases, this does not occur and in some extreme situations, one parent may purposely set out to systematically sabotage the other parent’s relationship with the child(ren). This phenomenon has come to be known as "parental alienation."

Parental alienation may be characterized by a parent making disparaging remarks to a child about the other party, encouraging the child to avoid spending time with the other party and, in general, manipulating the child into believing that the other parent is a bad person, undeserving of their love and respect. This process results in a child’s irrational rejection of the targeted parent and, on the other hand, an unusually close allegiance with the alienating parent.

If you're a parent and you believe that your co-parent is trying to sabotage your relationship with your child, you likely have legal options. At Ziegler Law Group LLC, we can present your circumstances to the court, petition for intervention, and help ensure that your role in your child's life is safeguarded.
