Dealing With an Obsessed Alienator
The court should have a mechanism, like a Guardian Ad Litem or court staff member to monitor the parent’s compliance to the court order. Courts must find sanctions for parents refusing to cooperate. One sanction that can be considered is to actually increase the parenting time the targeted parent has with the children. If the court decides to use this sanction, the alienating parent should understand this at the time he or she is being ordered into counseling and be told to comply with the parent time court order.
Dealing with an obsessed alienator can be one of the most difficult and painful experiences you will have because you will feel powerless and it can last for years. What is most important is that you don’t add to the problem by getting caught up in the alienating cycle. Remember prevention is a must because reversing parental alienation syndrome is near impossible. Most courts don’t have an effective mechanism to handle these cases.
Resources & Tools
COPING WITH PAS (the Parental Alienation Syndrome) -- Avoiding negative communication with the alienating parent lessens the chance to create conflict. By holding still, the alienated parent can shield children from the effects of bad-mouthing and prevent losing respect, affection or contact with them.
