New York Parental Alienation Lawyers
There are a number of ways to combat parental alienation in New York. One of them is to cut off child support to the other parent. New York requires that a parent support a child until age 21 pursuant to Family Ct Act § 413  [a]. However, if you can prove that your right of reasonable access to the child has been unjustifiably frustrated by the custodial parent, child support payments can be suspended. Helpful cases include Matter of Crouse v Crouse, 53 AD3d 750, 751 ; Matter of Dobies v Brefka, 83 AD3d 1148, 1152  and Usack v Usack, 17 AD3d 736, 737-738 ). To win your case, you are required to show that the other parent intentionally orchestrated and encouraged the estrangement of you from the children or that they actively interfered with or deliberately frustrated your visitation rights. Matter of Crouse v Crouse, 53 AD3d at 752, quoting Usack v Usack, 17 AD3d at 739.
