The Divorce Survival Guide Podcast


Aug 10, 2023

In today's episode, I'm thrilled to introduce Grant Wyeth, a talented writer based in Melbourne and occasionally Sweden. He joined me to discuss the intricacies of family court and share his knowledge about parental alienation. Grant wears many hats – he's a columnist for the prestigious Asia Pacific Affairs publication, The Diplomat, an editor at Asia Pacific Development, Diplomacy, and Defense Dialogue, and the creator of the Substack newsletter, International Blue.

While Grant's main focus has been on foreign affairs, in recent years, he's taken a deep dive into a different subject – the behavior of family courts. One particular Substack piece Grant wrote caught my attention. He delved into the complex issue of parental alienation within the family court system. Grant shares his research, experiences, and thoughts on these important issues in this episode. 

 Featured topics include:

  • How family court systems are failing to address abuse (4:17) 
  • The global significance of child custody cases and violence against women and its reflection on societal health (6:36)
  • The history of parental alienation (14:18)
  • Family court judges often lack training in recognizing signs of domestic violence, which leads to dangerous rulings (22:56)
  • Abusers use institutions like courts, mediation, and social services as weapons to maintain control (33:43)
  • The danger and harm of reunification camps (27:09)
  • We discuss the father's rights movement and gender bias (45:35)
  • Debunking parental alienation (46:46)
