Victims of Parental Alienation: Your Options


One of the unfortunate "side effects" of a divorce involving children from the marriage, is that while the parents are busy disagreeing, arguing and trying to come up with agreements as to how the assets and debts will be divided, who will pay spousal support, how child custody and child support will be determined, and the other personal and financial issues, the children are the ones who can ultimately suffer. Divorce can be very confusing, especially to a child.

Children usually do not understand why their parents have to split up, why they only get to live with one parent, where the other parent will go, whether or not they "caused" the divorce to happen or other concerns. To add to the difficulties, one parent may try to intentionally alienate the child(ren) from the other parent. Even when it isn't intentional, one parent could in fact be alienating the other parent by complaining about them, making negative comments or snide remarks, and other actions which could cause the children to become estranged from one or both of their parents.

As a parent, it is important to maintain a positive and loving relationship with your children, even after going through a divorce.

Parental alienation can forever ruin a parent's relationship with their child(ren). Do not let it ruin yours. Contact a divorce attorney at Henrickson & Sereebutra before it is too late.

    “No one likes spending money on attorneys, but she saved me THOUSANDS!”
    I've spent the past year working with Suzanne to resolve my child custody legal issue. She is thorough and an excellent communicator. Observing her at trial was impressive because the opposing attorney was an utter disaster. Suzanne was organized and articulate. No one likes spending money on attorneys, but she saved me THOUSANDS!

    I recently had to get a divorce. And well.... my wife lived in another state GA. I contacted Suzanne and from the start she was patient, did not rush me (EVER), allowed me to tell her the long history of my marriage and was very thorough! Not only did she do a great job, but her and her team went above and beyond my expectations!!!!!! I highly recommend this law firm!!!! Thank you Suzanne!!!!

    “Thank you Suzanne for giving me hope and for having a moral backbone!”
    I only spoke with Suzanne for an hour or so but in that time I could tell she is a person that cares about the truth and ethics. She seems like the attorney that will fight for her client if she believes that are in the right. She understands the legal and political landscape of Paulding and Cobb counties. If things with my attorney do not give me more confidence in the next 3 weeks I am hiring Suzanne. Thank you Suzanne for giving me hope and for having a moral backbone!
