Houston Parental Alienation Attorneys

Protect Your Relationship with Your Child

In Texas, courts strive to issue joint managing conservatorships with the belief that it is in a child’s best interests to have a relationship with both parents. Unfortunately, some parents are unable to recognize their co-parent’s vital role in their child’s life and upbringing and end up turning the child against the other parent. This behavior is called parental alienation.

If you have reason to believe that the other parent of your child is attempting to manipulate them and turn the child against you, it is important to take legal action right away to prevent further damage. At Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law, we offer comprehensive and aggressive representation to the victims of parental alienation, fighting hard to help them patch their relationships and put a stop to the other parent’s manipulation.

Contact us at (281) 476-9447 to discuss your situation during an initial consultation.

What Is Parental Alienation?

Parental alienation is the act of attempting to alienate a child from his or her other parent in an attempt to remove that parent from the child’s life or harm their relationship with the child. This is an extremely harmful and dangerous practice that can forever alter not only the parents’ lives but the child’s life.

Signs of parental alienation include:

  • Your child is disrespectful to you – especially when the other parent is present
  • Your child refuses to accept gifts from you
  • Your child imitates the other parent and adopts their speech patterns or behaviors
  • Your child talks badly about you to others, such as family members, friends, teachers, and coaches
  • Your child pesters you or brings up situations between you and the other parent
  • Your child refuses to maintain contact with you

How to Stop Parental Alienation

If parental alienation is present, there are ways you can fight back. At Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law, our Houston parental alienation attorneys want to help you address this serious situation and resolve it effectively.

  • Modify your custody order and have the child moved to a neutral environment
  • Enforce custody arrangements that provide contact with your child, even if they are refusing to see you
  • Request therapeutic intervention
  • Request appointment of a parental coordinator
