Divorce and Parental Alienation and Child Custody and Child Support and College Tuition and College Expenses
Divorce and Parental Alienation and Child Custody and Child Support and College Tuition and College Expenses. In a divorce matter where one parent has turned the children against the other parent, a claim of parental alienation may be pursued in the form of a cause of action of intentional infliction of emotional distress. A party that causes children to denigrate another parent, speak derogatorily about another parent, not have a relationship with the other parent, is participating in parental alienation. If parental alienation does exist, in the case of college tuition and expenses, the Court may find that the other party is not responsible for college tuition and expenses where the child does not speak to the other parent and does not involve that parent in decision making. There are even cases in New York, outside of New Jersey, where if parental alienation is found, child support may be suspended. Thus far, New Jersey has not gone that far.
