My daughter has a bad relationship with her mother. Her mother has "sustained allegations of child abuse, neglect, and endangerment" in Children's Court (Dependency Court). She is 15 years old and does not want to see her mother. I have been taking my daughter to therapy with her mother (conjoin therapy) even though our daughter does not want it. Recently her mother, again, tried to physically attack our daughter (2nd time this year) and I had to physically restrain her. Now she, through her attorney, is accusing me of Parental Alienation because our daughter does not want to see her mother after the attempted assault. Is PAS recognized in California? What would her attorney have to do to prove it? If I lose custody our daughter goes into foster care, since mother cannot have custody.
