Thank you for your question!
If one parent is making negative statements about another parent in front of children, the court may order that parent to cease making those negative statements in front of the children and the court may order that parent to promote a positive environment and connections between the children and the other parent. Courts do not like and will not typically permit the continuation of activities that are intended to alienate a child from another parent. If a court finds that a parent continues such conduct, the court can restrict visitation to prevent a parent from alienating children from another parent.That said, it's important to understand that, when addressing child support issues, if one parent refuses to work, the court can impute income to that parent and treat that parent as if he/she is earning what he/she could be earning if he/she didn't refuse to work.
