Parental Alienation

Parental alienation is a psychological mind game which involves unnecessary manipulation and behaviour towards a child to ruin a relationship between the child and the separated or divorced parent. Cafcass (The Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service) say that Parental alienation is a form of child abuse.

“Anthony Douglas, chief executive of the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (Cafcass), warned against the danger of "parental alienation".

He said the deliberate manipulation of a child by one parent against the other has become so common in family breakdowns that it should be dealt with like any other form of neglect or child abuse.”

At Banner Jones, we understand that ex-partners may not get along. However, it is imperative to be strong and fair for the interest of the children involved.

At Banner Jones, we have dealt with all forms of Family Law. For friendly, compassionate legal advice, call 0330 017 6304 in confidence. We're here to help.

This type of behaviour not only damages the relationship between the children involved and the separated parent but also has long-term, even permanent, psychological implications. 

At Banner Jones, our Family Law Solicitors in Sheffield, Dronfield, Nottingham, Mansfield and Chesterfield can evaluate the following signs:

  • False allegations
  • Recognising alienation behaviour in a child and protecting the affected child
  • Identifying alienation in parents
