Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS) Is a Medical Diagnosis
PAS is a medically recognized disorder. It occurs when one parent, on an ongoing basis, belittles and insults the other parent without justification. It is estrangement of a child from a parent. It is seen in cases where the custodial parent attempts to prevent a child from spending time with the other parent, or where a parent says or does things that make the child fearful that the other parent will harm him or her. Our experienced Calabasas family law attorneys are familiar with this dynamic and we can take actions to prevent it.
