Resentment or negative emotion towards your ex is really easy to develop and maintain during and immediately following a divorce, particularly one that is contentious and involves considerable courtroom litigation. This can sometimes make parents attempt to sway their children’s opinions of their ex, sometimes consciously but possibly even unconsciously as well.

Combating Parental Alienation in New Jersey
Many parents are surprised to learn that parental alienation is a matter that can be brought to the court, and possibly have an impact on decisions such as child custody and visitation. Some believe this is a perfectly natural reaction to a contentious divorce, and that they are well within their rights to parent how they please as the custodial party.
Parental alienation can have a number of negative effects on children, including:
- Physical and mental health damage
- Behavioral issues
- Negative emotion or resentment towards one or both parents
If you are found to be contributing to parental alienation, it will be seen in court as a reflection on your ability to parent, and a poor one at that. Custodial parents may even lose their status, or the court may even change the agreement to one of joint custody to ensure children receive equal time with both parents. This can have a tremendous impact on the lives of everyone involved going forward.
