Dads often get the short end of the parenting stick

By now, most divorced dads in Texas understand that single parenting can be a challenge. Depending on the divorce agreement, you might only get to see your kids on the weekends, or you might have 50/50 custody but your ex is sabotaging every moment of time you have with your children. At the Law Office of Brian Turner, we know that there is a term for the latter – it’s called parental alienation syndrome, and it’s far from uncommon.

Psychology Today defines parental alienation syndrome as the deliberate attempt by one parent to restrict the children’s time with the other parent or to turn the children against him or her. If this is happening to you, you may know that it doesn’t just hurt you – your children are also hurt when they aren’t allowed to have a close relationship with you, and the tactics your ex uses to alienate them from you can cause lifelong emotional damage to them.

Parental alienation syndrome is not gender-specific, although most of the time, it’s the mother who does the alienating. The alienating parent may have financial and legal resources, as well as the social support to turn family members, former friends and others against you. An alienating parent uses tactics like blame, making false accusations, bad-mouthing the other parent to the children and restricting the other parent from having time with the kids.

Child custody and visitation can be a complex legal area, especially if your ex is trying to turn the kids against you. As our page explains, you have legal options if you have a custody concern.
