Parental Alienation & Private Children Law Cases
Practitioners working in private children law will often come across high conflict contact matters. Whether you represent the applicant or the respondent, there will often be blame being attributed to each other, and sadly, the child often gets caught in the middle of what is a dispute between the adults.
What should you do in situations relating to ‘implacable hostility’ and ‘parental alienation’ cases?
This webinar will consider the various options available.
