Boulder, Colorado fathers rights attorneys frequently confront parental alienation in their cases. Parental alienation occurs when one parent tries to alienate the other in order to win a child’s attention, love or affection. This violates dads rights to continue his relationship with his child, and it can cause a lifetime of damage.
Here are a few examples:
• A dad is required by custodial-parent mom to provide his own toys and clothing for his child that he only sees eight days out of the month.
• A custodial-parent mother schedules a trip to an amusement park on the noncustodial parent’s visitation day (which violates the fathers rights in the visitation order).
• Custodial-parent mom insists that a child choose between his parents.
• Custodial-parent mom tells her son that the divorce was his dad’s fault.
These and many other forms of parental alienation are blatant violations of a dads rights in Boulder. Children caught in this tug-of-war tend to treat the alienated parent disrespectfully or may even refuse to see him.
