Family lawyers: they’re not ALL bad. Honest!

[The following is written by an anonymous contributor] I see a lot written by parents about "corrupt" or unscrupulous solicitors and legal professionals. I’m going to try and write something positive for a change. I have never fully added it up but I spent about £50,000 on legal fees. I don’t want to add it … Continue reading Family lawyers: they’re not ALL bad. Honest!

The Story of a Great Man and a Great Father who Suffered at the Mercy of an Alienating Parent

"It’s his story yes. But it’s being told so others will continue to fight. It’s to raise awareness about Parental Alienation.

The shadow on the wall – Interview with a self-confessed (but reformed) parent alienator.

You've heard the phrase "it takes two to tango?" Well parent alienation requires an antagonist and an antagonised, a targeter and a target and a resident parent and a non-resident, in that order.

This post was suggested by my various professionals during my journey and a post by David Shubert on iwaserased.com

I have thought about this a lot over the previous years. How to put into words the loss that I feel not seeing my children, having no idea what they are up to, not being asked daddy questions and an infinite amount of other possible situations.

I was ‘lucky’, in that I have found (or they found me?) a wonderful new partner and her son, both of whom adore me.
