How to Detect Parental Alienation Syndrome and What to Do About It

Normalizing - 2016

De facto judges, CPS and Family Court Staff workers are operating a state sanctioned kidnapping racket [RICO]. These predators operating under the color of law are kidnapping our children and seniors for money. They demoralize and destroy the developing mind of our children during their most tender years and our vulnerable parents during their twilight years turning the beginning and end of their lives into nightmares, leaving shattered and distraught families in their wake.

Because our elected and appointed servants refuse to protect and champion our most precious and hallowed resource, our children, We the People through the Unified United States Common Law Grand Jury will champion this holy cause with a relentless determination to bring justice upon these wicked stewards. We Promise!Fathers and Family Courts - 2015

We are a proactive group with the tenacity and motivation to stop these criminals that have seized our courts. It you have an issue with CPS, APS, Family Court and Juvenile Court and you like to join our class action suit and help stop the destruction of our children and families contact an intake receptionists below and begin the process. Let the receptionist know if you can volunteer time to help this cause.

There are many proponents of the Fathers Rights Movement that profess a belief in the teachings and sayings of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King. Yet when you delve into their knowledge of the practices of Gandhi and King you find that they have only scratched the surface when studying the methods of these two leaders. AFLA - Ghandi - 2015Gandhi set forth a very specific template of actions in order persuade the British to leave India. Despite the fact that he made incredibly moving speeches to persuade his opponents it was the actions of his followers that drove his point home. Gandhi believed that if he could not persuade you he would find someone else that could. This was achieved by the economic boycott of the British monopolies on salt and cloth. Gandhi didn’t hesitate to put thousands of Englishmen out of work. It was the discontent of these out of work Englishmen that convinced the British Government to concede defeat.

So why Florida Orange Juice and California Wine?

It should be evident to anyone the value of these agricultural commodities to each state. California reaps over $1 billion a year from its wine industry. Florida spends millions promoting orange juice and tourism. Yet neither state gives a damn about the rights of a divorced father! In keeping with the boycotts of British salt, cloth, the Birmingham bus companies and the white own businesses of the segregated South we are instituting a worldwide boycott of Florida Orange Juice, California Wine and their Theme Parks.

If these states are prepared to ignore the voices of so many disenfranchised fathers then they will surely listen to the complaints and pain of their growers and corporate theme park owners.

So join us as we spread the pain and suffering of our Children and Fathers across the entire States of Florida and California. Remember once these states fall and grant Fathers’ Equal Rights and Equal Custody this boycott will be shifted to other deserving states such as Vermont, Michigan, Minnesota, Virginia and the many other states that turn their backs on the Rights of Fathers and the Happiness of our Children.Childrens Rights Florida

Parental Abduction is Child Abuse

Parental Alienation Syndrome: How to Detect It and What to Do About It

by J. Michael Bone and Michael R. Walsh

FLORIDA BAR JOURNAL, VOL. 73, No. 3, MARCH 1999, p 44-48

Although parental alienation syndrome (PAS) is a familiar term, there is still a great deal of confusion and unclarity about its nature, dimensions, and, therefore, its detection.(1) Its presence, however, is unmistakable. In a longitudinal study of 700 “high conflict” divorce cases followed over 12 years, it was concluded that elements of PAS are present in the vast majority of the samples.(2) Diagnosis of PAS is reserved for mental health professionals who come to the court in the form of expert witnesses. Diagnostic hallmarks usually are couched in clinical terms that remain vague and open to interpretation and, therefore. susceptible to argument pro and con by opposing experts. The phenomenon of one parent turning the child against the…

The Parental Alienation Debate and Argument for Tort

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Parental alienation is a growing problem faced by the courts — a problem which deserves a better remedy than currently exists. Parental alienation (PA), insofar as this paper is concerned, is defined as the unreasonable or irrational rejection of a parent by a child primarily due to the “negative influence of the other parent.”1

In a previous article, this author discussed the balancing interests of the fundamental constitutional protection of the right of a parent to raise a child as s/he sees fit, and the failure of Courts to protect the interests of an unreasonably rejected parent.2

To summarize, in those cases where the rejected parent has intentionally injured the child or the primary custodian of the child, then the rejection of the injuring parent by the child is rational and should be supported by the courts. However, in those cases where one parent is unreasonably rejected by a child and where the other parent has subtly or otherwise caused the rejection, then the court must do more to protect the relationship between the child and the wrongfully rejected parent — and to deter the alienating parent from engaging in the behavior which caused the rift between the child and the rejected parent.

Further, where the rejection has been so absolute as to destroy, perhaps for all time, the relationship between the rejected parent and the child, the court must allow the tortious recovery for the devastation caused by what is often calculated and blatant manipulation of the child’s affection.

three essential elements in this definition: (1) rejection or denigration of a parent that reaches the level of campaign (i.e., it is persistent and not merely an occasional episode); (2) the rejection is irrational (i.e., the alienation is not a reasonable response to the alienated parent’s behavior); and (3) it is a partial result of the non-alienated parent’s influence. If any element is absent, the term PAS is not applicable. Properly understood, a clinician using the term PAS does not automatically assume that the favored parent has influenced a child’s alienation from the other parent. Rather, the term PAS is used only when there is evidence for all three elements.

The Honorable Lawson E Thomas (1898-1989)
Lawson E. Thomas was an outstanding civil rights activist who worked tirelessly to make a pronounced change in Miami’s social and political environment, and who did so utilizing the law as his tool. His first major victory on behalf of a group of clients was gained in the late 1940s when he represented black parents in Broward County who successfully sued the School Board over unequal treatment of their children. At the time, the school year for black children was three months shorter than for white children, so that black children would be available to work in the bean fields.

The Family Court System Playing Field Unfair!

Double Standards in Family Courts - 2016

Denied Contact - 2015 Joshua Youssef, a fit parent had all visitation with his son stripped of him with absolutely no finding of abuse and neglect. Josh is an upstanding, law-abiding citizen with absolutely no criminal history, is an entrepreneur, business-owner, job-creator, and most importantly, a loving father who has been victimized by the biased and rogue N.H. Family Courts. In this multi-part video series, Josh testifies before the New Hampshire House of Representatives Committee for Redress of Grievance, to make known to our lawmakers that the Family Courts of N.H. are abusing children and families by denying parents and children access to each other with no abuse or neglect findings.what-happened-to-equality-20161

In this case, former guardian ad litem Tracy A. Bernson made feminist-agenda-based recommendations to the court, which were adopted by Marital Master Nancy J.

Children's Rights

Alienation is Child Abuse That when a Child is born, both biological Parents have a right to know. 


A Child has a right to both Parents in their lives.


Fit Parents decide what is in the ‘best interests’ of their Children.


Good, average, and poor Parents are Fit and Equal Parents.


That you and your spouse have a right to be presumed Fit and Equal Parents (equal in terms of both physical and legal custody). 


If anyone (a spouse, relative, social services) wishes to challenge these rights, you have:


1) The right to counsel.


2) The right to be presumed a fit Parent, innocent, and deserving of an equal relationship with your kids.


3) The right to protection of a criminal jury. The “state” needs to prove you were a demonstrated serious and intentional threat to your Child’s safety and that you acted with mal-intent towards your Children.

They AREN’T helpless! They AREN’T incompetent. They AREN’T disabled.

I’ve been practicing for about 30 years now – most of it in family law, and Florida’s finally doing away with permanent alimony is long overdue – about 150 years overdue, in fact!

A right delayed is a right denied

We all support smashing the ‘glass ceiling’ in the workplace, equal pay for equal work, women in combat, burning bras, and in general any and pretty much every other cause that holds women as competent and capable as men…and that’s the way I certainly raised my own daughter to be.

It’s time to pass a law which finally treats divorced adult women as adults instead of disabled incompetents who cannot survive after divorce with enslaving their ex-husband for life through alimony payments – and vice versa for any man who thinks he is somehow ‘entitled’ to a substantial part of his ex-wife’s income for life so he doesn’t have to act like an adult after his marriage fails!

Alimony is nothing more than an involuntary servitude, and it should have been abolished in 1865 along with the rest of slavery! It apparently only began in old England because there was no other means of equitable distribution since most married couples owned only one asset – their farm. If they divorced, the husband had to keep it since women couldn’t hold title to real property under English Law and thus it couldn’t be split! Also, banks wouldn’t lend husband’s money to buy out their wife’s interest in those days, as banks really only lent to the rich then (merchants, not farmers).

The reason alimony ended upon remarriage of the wife wasn’t because it was support, and it wasn’t to shortchange her equitable distribution share – it was because the woman ceased to exist as a legal entity once she remarried (As Blackstone explained then: “When a man and woman marry, they become one, and the one is a him”). Continue reading “They AREN’T helpless! They AREN’T incompetent. They AREN’T disabled.”

Awareness for Grandparent Alienation

Facebook.com/StandupforZoraya
Facebook.com/StandupforZoraya

It may appear as though the child is happy about their new, parentless status, but suppressing a relationship with the other parent is emotionally unhealthy and impacts them for a lifetime. This is a reality in Albion, PA, where children and parents are impacted, just as it is a reality all across the World. We need to find people who can help.

www.facebook.com/PAPA.fightpas
http://www.facebook.com/PAPA.fightpas

Parental Alienation is a term used to describe the behavior of a parent and often other family members who manipulate a child’s mind with the motive of severing all ties between the child and the other parent. The agenda is packed with various tactics and actions are pre-meditated. When the pressure on the child to remain loyal to the alienating parent becomes too intense, the child gives up, and total rejection of the other parent becomes reality.

Interestingly enough, one elementary school counselor took a brochure but told me she is told “not to get involved” with these situations. My response to her was, “That is a problem.” I have to question if people understand that parental alienation is emotional bruising just as physical abuse leaves visible marks on a child’s body. It harms a child’s development. Do people care or are they ignorant? Are we failing our children by not facing reality? What kind of society do we live in?

Parents who are on a mission to destroy a bond between a child and the other parent can only be punished through the courts and by God. There is little we can do about them and their behavior. They tell others they are “protecting” their child and make the child feel like the other parent is unworthy of a relationship with their child. Something no child should have to hear, for that parent is parent of who they are.

Parents who are on the receiving end of the alienation are often helpless. There is little they can by themselves. They stand helpless, as they watch the relational death between themselves and their children. They watch their children construct a wall between them as a result of the brainwashing. The parents witness the joy being drained out of their children’s lives, as they are asked to spy, lie, and even partake in the intense denigration. They watch their children sabotage their time with them in order to remain abnormally loyal to the alienating parent (and family). Alienated parents cannot help their own children because they are portrayed as the enemy. The courts fail them too.

Family courts embrace adversarial situations and often empower the alienating parent. Alienating parents have passed the course in manipulation and are very convincing. As a result, the courts lack of education, empathy, knowledge of children development or need for power further hurts the child.

The damage caused by the breakup of families is not going away, especially if we continually turn our backs on the abuse. Research shows that 20-25% of children in divorce situations are alienated from a parent. The impact lasts a life time. That was evident as I spoke to adults, in Albion, PA, who were alienated from their children.

Teachers, college professors, pastors, ministers, doctors, counselors, coaches and many others can begin to help children in an area that is desperately needed. Right relationships are what life is all about! Parental alienation is real, parental alienation is child abuse!

I’m not the best Father in the world, but I’m yours.

Those eerie words plague my memory.

I still hear them, I still dread them.

Your presence has been faint,

yet your words remain omnipresent.

My elusive mind cannot shed

those esoteric syllables.

They torment me.


I’m not the best father in the world, but I’m yours.

This pitiful usage of reverse psychology;

this paltry gesture to instill guilt;

this cowardly act of selfishness.

This technique

that works,

without fault.


I’m not the best father in the world, but I’m yours.

You’ve provided an excuse for

an absence,

a void,

that is, and always will be,

inexcusable.


I’m not the best father in the world, but I’m yours.

In an attempt to find

a father figure,

I’ve found just that—

a figure,

a silhouette;

an empty space,

a voice without a face.


I’m not the best father in the world…

There is a “father factor” in nearly all of the social issues facing America today.

There is a “Father Factor” in Our Nation’s Worst Social Problems

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 24 million children in America — one out of every three — live in biological father-absent homes. Nine in ten American parents agree this is a “crisis.”

Consequently, there is a “father factor” in nearly all of the social issues facing America today. But the hope lies in the fact that children with involved fathers do better across every measure of child well-being than their peers in father-absent homes.

Below is data on the positive impact of father involvement, and data on the effects of father absence on poverty, maternal and child health, incarceration, crime, teen pregnancy, child abuse, drug and alcohol abuse, education, and childhood obesity.

The Positive Impact of Father Involvement

In a study examining father involvement with 134 children of adolescent mothers over the first 10 years of life, researchers found that father-child contact was associated with better socio-emotional and academic functioning. The results indicated that children with more involved fathers experienced fewer behavioral problems and scored higher on reading achievement. This study showed the significance of the role of fathers in the lives of at-risk children, even in case of nonresident fathers.

Father Factor in Emotional and Behavioral Problems

Emotional_IconData from three waves of the Fragile Families Study (N= 2,111) was used to examine the prevalence and effects of mothers’ relationship changes between birth and age 3 on their children’s well being. Children born to single mothers show higher levels of aggressive behavior than children born to married mothers. Living in a single-mother household is equivalent to experiencing 5.25 partnership transitions.

Father Factor in Child Abuse

Abuse_IconA study using data from the Fragile Families and Child Well-being Study revealed that in many cases the absence of a biological father contributes to increased risk of child maltreatment. The results suggest that Child Protective Services (CPS) agencies have some justification in viewing the presence of a social father as increasing children’s risk of abuse and neglect. It is believed that in families with a non-biological (social) father figure, there is a higher risk of abuse and neglect to children, despite the social father living in the household or only dating the mother.

This Father’s Day, and every day, all across America, there are children who are being denied access to their fathers, and most of these fathers were in their children’s lives prior.

People must awaken to the truth and the horrors of family law and see how it’s the other parent and the family courts that have bankrupted and broken them down.

Changes must be made to these systems so the court-induced parental alienation immediately ceases from them doing more harm to our children.

How is it in the best interests of our children that their fathers’ driver licenses are suspended, and they are eventually thrown in jail for inability to pay?

Here are fathers who are already broke, bankrupted, and brokenhearted and now without any ability to pay, they order him to pay or go to jail.

Where is someone supposed to come up with that kind of money when they’ve lost everything? Tell me, people. How is this in the best interests of our kids? (Yes, I am not disputing that there are some parents who don’t deserve to be parents — moms and dads.)

But most often, these are loving, “fit” fathers who have been engineered by a system designed to break them down in every way, until all they can do is run.

They are hopeless and the cycle then goes on! What happens to them when they run? They become despondent and commit suicide, like Chris Mackney, or get shot at, like Walter Scott!

Does it make sense to suspend a parent’s drivers license so now they can’t work, can’t get money to pay?

Does it make sense to throw a parent in jail because of an inability to pay, so that while he’s locked up his arrears get worse?

It’s up to us to break the cycle!

There was this girl that once dreamed of having a relationship with her father but that dream seemed so far out of reach. She saw her father a few times as a child but that was all. She grew up saying “I don’t need a father.”

Years went by and she didn’t think much about ever seeking to fix those broken pieces. Oh but wait she thought she was fine. I think deep down inside she longed for that relationship with her father. You could tell by the choices she made with men.  She needed the piece of the puzzle to be filled.

A couple of years ago, she did some research, find her father and he was…

The depth of a woman’s attachment to her father is profound.

The Face of Fatherloss

The quintessential image of father loss.

We are not makers of history. We are made by history.
We are not makers of history. We are made by history.

A few weeks ago, millions of us around the world wept as we watched 11-year-old Paris Jackson, daughter of pop-icon Michael Jackson, break down as she spoke at her father’s funeral service. “Ever since I was born,” Paris said, “Daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine. And I just want to say I love him so much.” For me, in her pain, Paris Jackson was the quintessential embodiment of father loss.

Next week, I will publish a book entitled Fatherless Daughters; Turning the Pain of Loss Into the Power of Forgiveness. It’s a look at the effects of father loss on girls, and the women they become.

As you might imagine, I’m a fatherless daughter. My dad died of pancreatic cancer when I was 10, and my book grew from a personal wish to understand what I had missed not having grown up with my dad. I also strongly suspected that other women who had lost their fathers felt as I did-aware that their dad’s loss had affected them, but not quite able to articulate how. So I interviewed over 100 women whose fathers had either died or abandoned the family before the girls turned 18. This book is the result of those talks. (I also did quite a bit of additional reading, research, and interviews with professionals in the worlds of psychology and sociology.)

I learned a tremendous amount. Some factors were utterly expected, almost clichéd; such as that a woman’s romantic relationships are dramatically affected by father loss. Other findings were delightfully surprising, including the reality that most fathers are more interested in their daughter’s physical health and well-being than in her relative beauty.

Here is a list of the 12 essential factors I concluded about father loss:
1. The depth of a woman’s attachment to her father is profound. Whether the relationship was good or bad, long or short, happy or sad, her father has had an enormous impact on her life, and his influence will never end.
2. Fear of abandonment is the hallmark of the fatherless daughter. Directly linked to fear of abandonment are many other emotional problems, including issues with intimacy, sex, trust, commitment, shame, and most of all, anger.
3. Death of a father, because of its finality, is commonly thought to offer closure to a fatherless daughter. This is not necessarily true.
4. Abandonment by a father, if the father is still alive, is commonly thought to offer hope to a fatherless daughter. This is not necessarily true.
5. If your mother coped with strength, intelligence, and empathy toward you after your father’s death or abandonment, the chances are good that you were spared many of the problems faced by fatherless daughters.
6. Stepfathers can be a God-send or a tragedy.
7. Alcoholism is a frequent problem among the mothers, fathers, and stepfathers of fatherless daughters.
8. If, as an adult, you have put together a happy relationship with a husband or partner, you are well on your way toward resolving your father loss issues.
9. Your life would not necessarily have been better if your father had been present in the family; different, certainly, but not necessarily better.
10. You are not responsible for hurts you endured as a child, but you are responsible for your life today. You must rely on yourself.
11. It’s never too late to “find” your dad-and to come to terms with his loss.
12. Coming to terms with the loss of your dad–and forgiving all those who may have let you down– is liberating, freeing you to experience life, love, peace, and happiness.

Based on these findings, it may appear that fatherless daughters are doomed to neurotic, unsatisfied lives. This is hardly the case. Many of the most accomplished women in history and at work in our world today are fatherless daughters.

For example, I was startled to learn how many actresses lost their fathers early in life, including Myrna Loy, Jean Harlow, Bette Davis, Lucille Ball, Angela Lansbury, Julia Roberts, Barbra Streisand, Jodie Foster, Tracy Ullman, Sophia Loren, Rene Russo and Cate Blanchette, to name just a few. Many of these women supported their families single-handedly for their entire lives.

In addition, many women from the world of feminism and politics were or are also fatherless daughters, either the result of death or divorce, including Eleanor Roosevelt, Gloria Steinem, Bella Abzug, Olympia Snow, and Geraldine Ferraro.

Today, as I write this, Sonia Sotomayor, a 54-year-old woman of Puerto Rican descent, raised in the Bronx, New York, became the first person of Hispanic descent to sit as a judge on the Supreme Court of the United States. One pivotal factor in Judge Sotomayor’s personal history is that her father died when was nine,

For me, like Paris Jackson, Judge Sonia Sotomayor is a quintessential face of father loss.

When I was 17 I lost my dad unexpectedly. It’s been seven years and the pain is still very real. Over the course of those years I have come to realize many things that I feel need to be shared with others. I know there are many other young women who are in my shoes. To our friends, these are the things we want you to know.

1. We’re sorry.

We are sorry for being quiet every time you talk about your dad to us. We don’t mean to sound uninterested or make you feel that your happiness is unimportant to us. It’s just that when you talk about moments with your dad, it takes us back to moments with ours. Moments we wish we could relive and share with you, too. We don’t get quiet on purpose; it kind of just happens. It’s our mind’s…
