In Florida divorce cases, how do attorneys and judges contribute to parent alienation?
Parental alienation is a very serious problem in many cases. When parents are in litigation and the judge is having to make decisions, the judge’s decisions and the parents’ actions and the advise that the parents get from their attorneys, can exacerbate parental alienation and cause long term problems for the children. If your attorney is recommending that you take action that seems like it would divide your child from the other parent, that’s probably not a good idea. In fact, the first thing that judges look for in deciding time sharing and what to do with children is the encouragement of a close and continuing bond between parent and child with the other spouse.
