Targeting And Ending Parental Alienation

At Kraayeveld Law Offices, P.C., in Grand Rapids, we treat parental alienation cases with the unrelenting and aggressive representation that you and your child deserve. We know how to help identify situations in which alienating behavior is impacting your parent-child relationship and when false accusations may be an issue.

If you see the signs of parental alienation, it is important that you address the situation as early as possible. Ongoing parental alienation can have long-lasting effects on your relationship with your child.

Contact us if you can answer yes to any combination of the following questions. You may be the victim of parental alienation, and IT NEEDS TO STOP.

  • Has your child suddenly drawn away from you?
  • Is your child pressured to call the other parent numerous times during your visit?
  • Have you been falsely accused of abuse?
  • Does the other parent constantly have excuses to cancel, restrict or limit parenting time?
  • Does the other parent avoid providing you with information about your child?
  • Has your child been taken to a counselor who has a one-sided view of you?
  • Does the other parent bad-mouth you in front of the children?

We Help Put An End To Alienating Behavior

When you have been alienated from your child, it can make you feel absolutely helpless. It is important that you do not give up and know that you do not have to battle this issue alone. Our lawyers can provide invaluable assistance in helping determine a plan to fiercely combat parental alienation.

There is no singular remedy for parental alienation, but some level of action must be taken. Remember, waiting can cause lasting harm.

Each case is unique, which is why it is so important to get help from professionals who can tailor treatment plans to the specific needs of your child and the scope of your individual situation. A Michigan court may also become involved in these situations and support or even order a certain course of action.

Possible solutions involve:

  • Therapy: A psychologist or another professional can give a child insight into the situation, understand the consequences of losing a loving parent and both reactively and proactively address the attitudes of the parties involved.
  • Court order with sanctions: An order that sets certain limitations and includes sanctions for violations can allow a child to focus on the relationship with the nonalienating parent. This might include restricting communication with the alienating parent during visitation time with the other parent.
  • Enforcement of an order: When a parent violates limitations or restrictions in a court order, we can help a parent enforce the terms and the sanctions.
  • Removal: In some cases, a court may order that a child be removed from the custody of the alienating parent.

We must reiterate that there is no singular solution for parental alienation. These cases are complicated and do require the attention of knowledgeable professionals. Contact our experienced lawyer to protect your legal interests. Our lawyers can help you find other trusted professionals such as respected psychologists.
