TOOL OF THE DAY Basics for Framing Your Case and Preserving Error when there is Parental Alienation

(originally published on January 30, 2015. Updated on March 6, 2022.)

The most important thing you can do when you are being alienated is work on framing your case and preserving error when there is parental alienation. Too many parents believe that judges care about their relationship with their child, think that it’s going to be easy to prove the other parent has ruined their parent-child relationship and has turned their child on them.

Before we even talk about how to frame a case, let’s talk about how you got here.


It shocks me that for generations the courts have enjoyed parents that have been so passive for so long about a court ripping their child from them. You pay thousands of dollars to attorneys just to have them say that you’re going to get visitation with your child. And then after spending all of that money, you find out the order is useless, the other parent doesn’t follow the orders any way and nobody seems to care. The police don’t enforce your orders. You’re told to go back to court. Going back to court means spending lots of money again. And you are at the mercy of the attorney you hire and how much money you have in your pocket again. The problem is that we got dependent on attorneys. We trusted what the attorneys told us.


If parents knew what to do, I don’t think that they would be such easy prey. But there aren’t any trained attorneys willing to teach you about your rights, not the ones that limit the judge’s discretion anyway. And attorney bar associations want to limit where parents can get information.

We go to other countries to educate them on how AIDS is spread and other diseases. We go to countries where there are violations of human rights and we teach them that they have rights and to fight for them. We are not educating Americans in our own country on how they lose their rights to their children.

Just like any other predator. If there is a chance to take advantage of someone’s vulnerabilities, there is generally someone waiting there to capitalize on that opportunity. Family courts have become predators to our children, to the family units, and to you.

What are the signs of parental alienation not on the list of PA?

Did you believe that telling the truth was going to protect you from losing  your children? I did.

Unfortunately, once you realize that the truth didn’t matter, the Court has made orders. If you are reading this, then I’mgoing to assume those orders were not in your favor.

Perhaps you can relate to this video that I made for you, because I relate to what you are going through. This really happened to me. If this is happening to you, I want to let you know that there is hope. There are ways to win your child custody back. There are ways to your rights work that so many attorneys and pro se parents don’t even realize. If you are experiencing what I experienced, this video will help you find the tools that help you get better results.*
