my son, Zachary....
who was alienated from me between the ages of 8 &
9 by his father & his girlfriend, who was once my friend in the first place. now
Zachary is 20. he still lives with his father
& the girlfriend who vowed, "I've stolen your husband already and now I will steal your son."
I pray for Zac's mental health, relationship abilities
and the quality of his self esteem as he continues to deal with his father & his father's wife's abusive & controlling
I pray for all of you who have been through similar
situations, your children and the condition of all families in today's society.
In Kilgore v. Boyd Case No. 95-7573 the Court
If I do have to apply a Frye test he has passed the Frye test. And I find that parental alienation
syndrome has passed the Frye test in my courtroom, which is a Circuit Court Courtroom in the Family Law division, based on
the evidence and argument before me.

This article includes:
- a list of symptoms & types of behavior, as defined by Douglas Darnell, Ph.D., that are common
in cases of parental alienation
- descriptions of the types of alienators
- Case Law, Transfer of Custody
- Interference with Custody Sanctions: Criminal Sanctions, Civil Sanctions
- Parental Alienation A Cause for Action
- Parental Alienation Alternate Approach
Alienation causes the alienated parent emotional distress, as it prevents the injured parent from having a relationship w/their
parent who has had a child alienated from them, by the acts of the other parent could easily make out a claim against the
alienating parent that would satisfy the "outrageous" element necessary to establish a cause of action for intentional infliction
of emotional distress or outrageous conduct.
Making false accusations of sexual abuse against
a parent, interfering w/parenting time & purposely destroying the relationship between parent &
child, is the type of behavior that could be seen as so extreme, to go beyond all possible bounds of decency &
be regarding as atrocious & intolerable in a civilized community.
action against one spouse could be joined in a divorce action if the behavior occurs before or during the pendancy of the
divorce action. The action could also be brought post judgment if the alienation does not occur until
after the divorce, which is often the case.
