Michael, San Francisco
Lots of people ask the same question, " How can I prove that what is going on is really PAS ? " If you look at the symptoms of PAS and match them to the behavior of the child you can pretty much know if your child is suffering from the problem, but the question that should be asked is this, " Will proving PAS get me back my child ? " My advise is to avoid any court room strategy to try and prove PAS. It is, however, important to get the help of mental health professionals to testify in court that it's in the child's best interest to be removed from the custody of an alienating parent.
I have been to court twice and on both occasions the judge has made reference to my wife's warlike attitude about the proceedings and yet she is given primary physical custody. If the court can see that she is coming at me with guns blazing, how can they not see that it is bad for her to have control of raising my daughter. I suppose I am asking for help in formulating my courtroom strategy.
