Hi Miriam,

 

Thanks for writing back -- good to hear from you.

 

I have opted out (without charge).

 

Your question is open for the other Legal Experts to review.

 

I wish you the very best with your case.

 

Take care and have a good weekend,

 

Ben

I see that the other expert opted out.

Why do you believe that this is language from a statute?

What defines alienation from parental alienation

Parental alienation is a subdiagnosis of alienation. However, are you asking about the psychological ramifications of alienation? If so, that is a question for a different set of experts.

This question was classified as a Legal question. Do you want me to chance the category?

" Parental alienation is a subdiagnosis of alienation." HUH????

I think you are wanting something better explained by a psych. I will switch this question to that category.
Thank you for allowing me to assist you.

Actually, what is called "Parental Alienation Syndrome" is not a diagnosis as it is not in the DSM and is not recognized as a medical condition in the scientific communities. It is, however, commonly used in family court in efforts to fight over custody of a child.

Since it is a made up condition, it is not referenced in any statutes. However, in Florida, one factor considered in determining a child's best interests is each parent's willingness to encourage and support a relationship between the child and the other parent, to honor a time-sharing schedule, and to be reasonable when changes occur. This is in Title VI, Chapter 61, Section 13(3)(a).

Do you have any other questions?
