Parental Alienation: Drastic Outcomes in Difficult Cases

The children of a mother who was ‘more like a friend than a parent’ were moved from living primarily with her to live with their father.  That is how The Times reported the case of RS v SS on 18 February 2014. The article focused on the children’s mother’s permissive parenting style; how she would head off to bed after school, leaving the children to watch television and play on their x-box.  The judge praised the children’s father for his insightfulness and persistence in seeking residence, and made a Residence Order in his favour.  On the face of it, the case could simply be interpreted as the triumph of middle-class parenting values.  If you are a divorced parent and your children spend the majority of their time with you then let them watch too much television at your peril!  But this superficial analysis belies a far more complex picture that is painted when one reads the case in detail.  The children in this case were apparently alienated from their father by a manipulative mother, who coached them to believe that their father had been neglecting them.  The judge described the mother as a ‘very and angry and willful woman’, who had ‘significantly failed these boys_’. Her hatred of the father was _‘almost pathological’.  Living with their mother was so detrimental to their welfare and their relationship with their father, that the Judge was satisfied that it would be better for them to move home, school, and town to live with their father.

9 Warning Signs of Parental Alienation and What To Do About Them

There are times in divorce when one parent hates his/her spouse more than he/she loves his children. When this occurs, toxic things happen. Things such as parental alienation.

Parental alienation, when a child turns away from a parent in an extreme form, can occur in both intact and divorced families and in families where the alienating parent is the primary residential caregiver or not or when the parenting plan gives equal timesharing.

Both genders have the potential to be the targeted parent. Mothers, despite typically holding the brunt of the childcare activities, even today, are not immune to being on the receiving end of the alienation. And it is not necessarily related to the time-sharing plan, although there may be a correlation. Fathers can have the classic every other week visitation, joint time sharing or the bulk of the residential requirements and even an occasional visitation because it’s not so much about access when you are dealing with a pathological personality.

Late last year, Dr. Phil took the case of a man obsessed over the idea that his wife has constantly lied to him and their child. This has caused a big fracture in the couple’s relationship and in the process, led to parental alienation towards the mother. Here’s a review of Dr. Phil’s assessment of the case, particularly on Mike which he deemed to be potentially suffering from Paranoid Personality Disorder.

A recent case involving the name change of a child highlighted the relevance change of name cases can have on custody litigation. The case (In re: Change of Name of W.E.K., 12-03,079) arose out of Lycoming County in which the natural Father sought to have his child’s last name changed from the Mother’s married last name to his last name. The facts of this case are unusual to the extent that Mother, Father and Step-Father were all aware of the other’s existence at the time of conception. Notably, all three are Army veterans and served overseas in Afghanistan. Mother was having relationships with both Father and Step-Father at the time of conception and, despite the knowledge that Father was most likely the biological Father of the child, named, Step-Father as the “birth father” on the Birth Certificate.
