• Denigrating the other spouse

• Using the child as a messenger

• Interfering with visitation rights

• Sharing intimate details of the other spouse’s infidelity, behavior, etc.

• Failing to pay support/adequately supporting the children

• Immediately introducing the children to the parent’s new love interest

• Moving the child as far away as possible from the other parent
