Yes it is. The questions to be asked though are why and how much?

Parental alienation is the interference with the parent child relationship by a former spouse or partner. It can be mild moderate or severe.

In most breakups there is some resentment and hurt that “leaks” from the parent into the child about their ex. Usually it dissipates and people move on.

In some cases it is worse and needs to be addressed with compare ting classes and some therapy.

And in a few cases it is so severe that extreme measures to u do the damage are necessary. Those involve reunification therapy for the alienated parent and child. A change in physical custody away from the alienating parent and strong judicial oversight.

It is important to have good legal and psychological counsel through the child custody phase of a divorce or paternity case to address these issues and determine the best path forward.
