Parental Alienation is a disorder found in many children with divorcing parents. This syndrome is an estrangement of the child from one parent, caused by the intentional (or unconcious) efforts of the other parent. The process involves the alienating parent making defamatory comments and hostile statements about the target parent in front of the child on a regular basis, in an effort to manipulate the child’s feelings towards them.
This results in the child displaying hostile behaviour, including insulting, humiliating and belittling comments, agression, and false accusations towards the target parent. The comments, accusations, and statements are ongoing and almost always unjustified. This behaviour can extend to the target parent’s friends and family as well.
Carey Linde was one of the first lawyers in Canada, and remains senior, in the field of Parental Alienation and Parental Alienation Syndrome. He is experienced in filing against the parent who has set out to alienate a child from the other parent, sabatoge the bond between the child and that parent, and in every possible way remove that parent and their family from the life of the child.
The lawyers at the Law Offices of Carey Linde strongly believe that every child needs both parents equally in their lives. Their goal is to overcome any obstacles necessary in order to ensure that this happens. The best interest of the children involved is always the primary goal, and their experience in handling this kind of difficult situation helps make the process less trying for their clients.
