Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.

I am genuinely sorry to hear that you are in this situation. However to file suit for 'parental alienation', there must first be a court order in place designating the right of both parents to have access or rights to the child. If there is currently nothing in place, the parties are deemed to have co-equal rights that must be re-evaluated via could order. Then if one parent interferes with the right of the other, a potential contempt claim and a petition for prenatal alienation would be possible.

Good luck.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
