Fight Back Against Parental Alienation
Books have been written about parental alienation and cases are working
their way into the Florida
family law legal system. Parental alienation can be subtle. If one parent hates the
ex-spouse and conveys these feelings to the children, even through unspoken
means, parental alienation could result. The judge could award the hated
ex-spouse additional time with the children if the parent is found to
be alienating the other parent.
