What are the Potential Monetary Implications of Parental Alienation?

Alienating your child from your spouse can have legal implications in child custody and support cases. In some cases where the alienation is so severe, the court may determine the parent alienating the child may receive less in child support.    In New York, child support is typically determined based on the Child Support Standards Act (CSSA), which considers the income of both parents and the number of children. Courts may deviate from the standard guidelines based on factors like childcare expenses, medical expenses, and any other special needs of the child.  If a court finds that you intentionally alienated your child from your spouse without a valid reason, it may consider this behavior when determining child custody arrangements. In some cases, it could impact the amount of time the alienated parent spends with the child, which may indirectly affect child support.
