    • I have an ex husband who has done his best to alienate our oldest son from me.  My oldest son was almost 13 when we divorced.  He has Asperger Syndrome (high functioning autism)and had a terrible time when I moved from the family home to an apartment where he had to share a room with his younger brother.  After a few months of struggling we decided that it would be better for our son to remain in the family home with dad.  Things were okay for a short time.  Dad gave the child his medication and sent him to school.  As soon as dad found out that I was dating the “alienation” began.  My ex began buying expensive gifts for our son such as new computers etc... just to keep him happy with dad.  Our younger son got nothing.  The ex told the son that he should not have to come to my house if he did not want to, even though it was time with him for regular visitation periods.  He told the son that I had abused him (dad) for years.  He told our son that I was a witch, I was stupid, crazy etc...  He even told our son that I did not want him, that when I found out about the Autism that I had abandoned him to the total care of his father etc...  I didn’t really know what was going wrong, but I knew something was.  During the course of almost 2 years dad had begun failing to medicate our son.  He was not filling Rx’s written by the Neurologist, our son was missing school.  He missed 90 days of school in 2 years.  Our son became suicidal in the spring of 2011, and that is when I finally found out all the things that Dad had been lying about.  I had to hire an Attorney to help me regain custody of my now almost 15 year old son (who now hates me, or has been coached to believe that he does) to protect him.  The alienation gets worse every day !  I have had temporary custody of my son for almost a year now.  He will be 16 in October.  The boys went for their 3 week extended summer visit with the Ex in July.  Two days into the visit my son is calling me on the phone to ask me if I am a Witch?  If I am stupid?  and if I am crazy?  What????  How painful all of this is.  To make matters worse there is a new step mom involved who thinks that everything is aobut her.  I was actually happy that the ex had found someone.  I thought that it would make our life better if he were happy.  How wrong I was.  Step mom came into the relationship with a daughter of her own who is now 12.  She totally controls all contact the girl has with her own father, and has gone as far as having the little girl use my ex’s last name on insurance cards etc.  There has been no legal adoption.  She is alienating her own daughter from her dad.
      We are still going to court for permanent orders. In the discovery and interogatories Dad and new wife state that they are asking for custody of the oldest son (but not the younger one) and their basis for this is I am a bad parent. I should’t have custody of my oldest son because I am Bi-polar. I have never been Dx as BP, but included in all of thier documentation are dad’s medical records and psychiatric records showing that dad is being treated with 3 different medications for his Bi-Polar condition, and that he was Dx with this condition 2 months prior to our divorce being final. I had no idea of dad’s BP until I saw these records in July. Explains a lot ! These people typed our 4 and half pages of lie after lie trying to make themselves look good. I wonder if they realize that they more than served my purpose in showing what they are doing. What kind of parent says that the ex is a bad parent and then only asks for custody of one child and not the other? Really?
      Dad and SM tell the son all the time that I owe them money. I don’t know how this could be since Ex doesn’t even pay support for oldest son. I cannot for the life me figure out how any of this will benefit the ex any way in court.
      So,yes my friends, Parental Alienation Syndrome really does exist, and damages children beyond belief.
      If you are being alienated, find a good attorney, read up on the subject, become informed and protect your children !
      It is a long battle, but one that must be waged for the children.
