San Diego Parental Alienation Attorneys
Divorce causes emotional distress and impacts your children in many ways. Messy custody battles may result in parents engaging in conduct that degrades the other parent in front of the children. California's Family Courts do not approve of either parent attempting to "turn" the child against the other parent. Some psychiatrists have dubbed this type of behavior "Parental Alienation Syndrome." If your child has been affected by this type of behavior or you are accused of alienating your child, contact San Diego child custody lawyer Thomas M. Huguenor today.
Attorneys Preventing Parental Alienation In San Diego Child Custody Cases
Courts are willing to take action when parental alienation is occurring. This behavior can take the form of demeaning a parent in front of the child or attempt to engage in parental kidnapping. Parental alienation is a basis to modify your child custody order in California. The first step in this process is to file a Motion to Modify Child Custody. If the alienation is extreme enough then the Court may grant an expedited hearing. At the hearing the Judge can make a temporary modification to the visitation schedule pending a trial to determine if the change should be permanent. If you are being alienated from your child then it is imperative that you contact an attorney immediately as further damage accrues with each day you wait.
