Parental Alienation allegations can result in serious and long-lasting consequences for the parent and the child. It could result in a change of custody, modification of parenting time, award of attorney fees, sanctions, or even jail time. But does the theory of parental alienation have scientific support? Can it (and has it) pass the Daubert and Frye gatekeeping tests? And what if there's a justifiable reason for the child to reject or resist contact with a parent? What if a parent is falsely accused of "parental alienation" when all that the parent is trying to do is to protect the child? This program will give you the tools that you need to understand the phenomenon of parental alienation and to defend your client against false allegations of alienation.
This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.
