Parental alienation - and the origin of a child’s reluctance to spend time
with a parent - continues to be a difficult issue increasingly faced by divorce
practitioners. This program will explore the issue of parental alienation; what
is it, what are the root causes, and what are the available interventions?
Learn how to make a case for parental alienation, how to defend your
client against an allegation, and how to find solutions – in court and outside
of court – for this growing problem.
Attendees will benefit from the insight of experienced
practitioners as they address how to adjust litigation tactics where
estrangement of children from a parent exists; from the GAL investigation, to
hiring an expert, to trial.
Hear from Dr. Peggie Ward, a local expert who regularly works with
parents and children caught in conflict and estrangement. Attendees will
also benefit from a view from the bench thanks to commentary from Judge Robert
W. Langlois as he offers the Court's perspective.
Attendees will learn:
How to recognize and define alienation;
How to effectively
advocate for solutions through the Courts;
Litigation strategies, including
working with a GAL, expert witnesses, and your own client (whether accused of
alienation or the alienated parent);
How to deal with parent-child
estrangement issues in mediation;
