CRASH! Parental Alienation, Family Violence and Family Law

Family law professionals, ranging from legal counsel, Independent Children’s Lawyers (ICL) and family consultants struggle with parental alienation as a form of family violence against the targeted parent and a form of abuse against the child. It was also apparent that not everyone was familiar with Section 4AB of the Family Law Act, 1975 that provides a reasonably accurate functional description of parental alienation as an example of family violence

Here it is:

Section 4AB Family Law Act, 1975: Definition of family violence etc.  (1)  For the purposes of this Act, family violence means violent, threatening or other behaviour by a person that coerces or controls a member of the person’s family (the family member ), or causes the family member to be fearful.
•(2)  Examples of 
behaviour that may constitute family violence include (but are not limited to): •(i)  preventing the family member from making or keeping connections with his or her family, friends or culture”
