It is incredibly painful when one parent tries to alienate the child from the other parent. If is equally painful when a parent is wrongfully accused of doing this. Animosity between the parents can severely harm a child.
For several years now, many Texas judges have recognized the harm that parental alienation causes. More importantly, they are increasingly willing to do something about it.
The problem, however, is knowing for sure that it is happening. Just because a child does not want to do something with a parent does not mean that there is alienation going on; sometimes a child has a valid reason for not wanting to be with a parent. Alienation can be extremely subtle.
It takes wisdom and experience to be able to evaluate parental alienation cases. As often as not, it means that mental health professionals have to be brought into the case to help deal with these problems. The Fort Worth family law attorneys at the Bob Leonard Law Group deal with issues such as this and have the experience and knowledge to help you.
