In re Petition of Two Minors for Change of Name:

[UNPUBLISHED]

Alienating Parent: ♀

“[T]he judge, pointing to the comment in Dr. Powers’s letter of August 26 that the ‘parents remain highly contentious toward each other,’ found that the mother’s efforts to change the children’s surname ‘constitutes an attempt to alienate [the] [f]ather from the children’s lives,’ behavior that should not be condoned through a change of name petition.”
In re Petition of Two Minors for Change of Name, 65 Mass.App.Ct. 850, 855, 844 N.E.2d 710 (Mass.App.Ct. 2006).
