Nationwide Parental Alienation Lawyers
Parental Alienation and Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS) are related but distinct issues. Regardless of what you are encountering or what you call it, the pain and frustration are real. There are tons of parents that could care less about their children so its incredibly sad when a parent wants to be part of a child's life and the other parent engages in parental alienation. Even worse is that society doesn't seem to either know about parental alienation or they don't think its a big problem. Our attorneys actually think its an epidemic. While it happens everywhere, our attorneys really notice its devastating impact in New Jersey where child support continues until the child is 23 years old. In so many cases, the parent paying child support has no relationship with the adult child. The other parent successfully alienated our client long before we got in the case. Now that the child is 18 years old, there is nothing our attorneys can do. Of course, if your child is under 18, you still have hope.
Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be enough lawyers that focus on this serious problem so we created this site to highlight our knowledge and experience in parental alienation and how we have fought back to make sure that our clients do not become another victim. While our practice is primarily based out of New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, we offer our services nationwide.
We hope that you find this site informative and helpful. If you need our help anywhere in the U.S. with your parental alienation case, call our team of tough, smart lawyers anytime at 1-855-9-JEFLAW.
Parental Alienation Resources:
We have created some informational resources around specific parental alienation topics that commonly need addressing. The problem of parental alienation has probably been around as long as divorce and spousal separation, possibly as long as manipulative parents have been having children! Acknowledging and talking about the problem is relatively new and still not as mainstream as it needs to be to effectively battle the problem. This website and the resources that it offers are a place for victimized parents to begin battling back.

Pennsylvania Parental Alienation Lawyers
In Pennsylvania, most parents share legal custody. This means both parents have a right to participate in major decisions related to the child's life. When divorced parents disagree on decisions affecting their child, parental alienation may be used as a means to an end or as the result of mental defect. The degree of parental alienation can vary and identifying the problem isn't always an easy task.
If parental alienation is taking place, some of the signs may include;
A child may not want to talk with the alienated parent.
May not want to spend time with the targeted parent.
May bad mouth the other parent without justification.
Doesn't want to interact with the targeted parent's family members.
