Chicago Parental Alienation Attorneys

Parental alienation is a complex and distressing phenomenon in which one parent manipulates a child into having unwarranted negative feelings or hostility towards the other parent. This manipulation is a form of abuse that can severely damage the child’s relationship with the targeted parent, leading to long-term psychological and emotional consequences.

At Corri Fetman & Associates Ltd., we understand the dynamics of parental alienation.

Signs of Parental Alienation 

Identifying parental alienation can be difficult, as it often manifests subtly. Some signs to watch for include:

·   Sudden withdrawal of affection from the targeted parent

·   Unexplained fear or hostility towards the targeted parent

·   Repeating negative language or accusations used by the alienating parent

·   Unwillingness to participate in family activities involving the targeted parent

·   Unjustified rejection of the targeted parent’s extended family 

Why Parental Alienation Occurs

Parental alienation can arise from various internal and external factors. Frequently, it stems from unresolved anger or bitterness between parents following a separation or divorce. One parent may seek to undermine the other as a form of retribution or control. Additionally, external influences such as new relationships, economic struggles, or psychological issues can exacerbate the situation, further complicating family dynamics.
