When one parent convinces a child to turn against the other parent, it is an extremely sad and unfortunate situation. Sometimes referred to as parental alienation, this method of manipulation is used by parents during a contested divorce and causes untold grief to the child and the alienated parent. The importance of a child having positive relationships with both parents is undeniable. Therefore, when a child is being brainwashed to dislike or rebel against a parent, what is usually required is fast and resolute court action.
Mr. Colman's courteous and direct advocacy for me in court helped me not only to gain more access but solved other areas of conflict and, I believe, prevented many future legal conflicts.

We will leverage this new awareness to ensure that your relationship with your child is not destroyed.
Techniques such as positively reinforcing children for making negative statements about a parent, and encouraging lying and rebelling, must be stopped. Additionally, when a hostile and aggressive parent prevents another parent from seeing the children in violation of a parenting plan, legal action must be taken to enforce the child custody and access agreement or court order.
