The story in the "fake" letter is just that, a story for the Judge, in an attempt to re-write history to favor mother's desires. My agreement with my ex (& our son) was that we were to NEVER put him in the middle of our disputes. I ran for a government seat once & it was absolutely incredible how quick people were to bash me after my ex gave numerous negative interviews to the media. She could of just said nothing that would harm my possible future employment, but she felt it was okay to broadcast our divorce issues & brought our son's name up. I would like to believe that World Peace is a possibility, but so far I can't get peace from my ex 'cause I still care about my son & want to see him.
You seem to be avoiding the questions I asked. Please answer those. Does your son deny to you that he wrote or signed that document?

I don't understand what the poll is even asking.

Poll makes no sense but I thought the current expert view was the theory of parental alienation was very poorly thought-out and is used to cover real abuse and so Courts and social workers are trying to move away from its use.

He is asking if the courts in people's jurisdictions recognize parental alienation (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parental_alienation) syndrome as a valid means of changing custody agreements.

I think the OP believes that the mother is unduly influencing the son against his father. I'm guessing he doesn't believe the sons true interest lies in what the son says he wants to do, since he believes the son is being psychologically manipulated by his mother.

In this case, since the son is almost 18 and an adult, the courts would probably give a large consideration to the son's testimony in terms of who he really wanted to be with.

If I were in the summer between HS and graduation I probably wouldn't want to switch households, either, tbh. At that time one's mine is often on friends, girlfriend/boyfriend, and job to save up for school, all of which are probably in the vicinity of the kid's current residence.

I assume dad doesn't live in the immediate area, if he's not on a more regular visitation schedule.

For all those that do not understand "Parental Alienation" I suggest you tune into Dr Craig Childress blog for education or view his presentation on PA to the Penn. State legislature, it is truth and it is a real life tragedy for the child and the alienated parent, the child is used as a weapon of revenge and it is psychological child abuse and does great psychological harm to the child and the alienated parent. The alienator is always a narcissistic borderline personality or sociopath, it's real so be forewarned when you attempt to use your child as a weapon because it will destroy your child.
