PAS claim being used to gain custody
From: Mom in Georgia
Remote Name: 22.214.171.124
I have two children, & 16. Their dad has been remarried for 5 years and the stepmom is obsessively overbearing. The kids have complained for years that they don't want to go over there because she is too involved and is very strict. Their dad has allowed her to become the 'parent', and defers to all of her disciplines. Her behavior has become abusive, and both children refused to go there. I filed a modification of visitation, asking that guidelines be put in place to protect the children. Their dad viewed this as an attack and countered with a full custody claim. After being deposed, they realized they had nothing based on my parenting, and decided to 'suspend' litigation and for my daughter and us go to a therapist. After researching this therapist, I learned that she and her office specialize in PAS cases. There has been parental alienation, but it's from the dad and stepmom, and they are using this as a way to gain custody. I have read some things that would indicate that I need to take this very seriously. If anyone has any advice, I would appreciate it. (Last changed: February 26, 2006 )

Mom in Georgia: You have nothing to worry about if your not targeting your ex, you appear to view your ex's wife as threat- understand everyone has a different way of parenting, and limit setting. If your kids don't know how to be flexible, they will not make it in todays world. If you get diagnosed with PAS, you must really look at yourself closely, tell the truth during therapy, be honest with yourself. If you lie, you might be surprised being diagnosed sociopathic liar- just like my ex. I wish your kids luck- hope that they turn out good adults in the end. (Last changed: February 26, 2006)
