can you take civil action against an alienator
Thanks in advance.
Hurt feelings? Not sure how actionable that is. All's fair in love and war really. Not much you can do in other words.
With alienation, the wrong is to the child, not you. Also, with alienation, both parents can make a contribution so the whole area is very arguable. I'm not saying this applies to you, as evidently the expert is ascribing responsibility to the mother.
It would be interesting to hear a solicitor's view.
It would be more correct to say that Children may say what they consider an authoritative figure, which includes parents, may want to hear.
i.e. Children do not always say what their parents want to hear. If aligned to a parent a child will tend to say what that one parent wants to hear. Such alignment isn't necessarily limited to alignment with a parent.
