Parental Alienation

In general, courts in California recognize a parent's right to be with his or her child. If a parent denies the other parent the right to child access or visitation, the parent who denies the access is committing parental alienation.

Parental alienation may also involve psychologically manipulating a child into feeling unwarranted fear, hostility or disrespect toward a parent. Make no mistake: parental alienation is considered to be a form of psychological abuse and family violence. Unfortunately, parental alienation is a real problem in many high-conflict divorces in Beverly Hills.

If you believe the other parent of your child is engaging in parental alienation, contact Mansouri Law Offices today. We can help.

Contrary to what some people believe, if a parent falls behind on child support or spousal support payments, the other parent does not have legal grounds to deny access to the child.
