A Brief History in Sandra-Grazzini-Rucki’s Case with Regard to Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS) Psychologist Paul Reitman
In 2012 Dr. Paul Reitman forced the mother-Sandra Grazzni-Rucki to sign a consent form by threatening to “take her children” before any assessment occurred. Therefore Paul Reitman was engaged in professional misconduct from the start, by coercing the mother to sign his consent form under threat to the mother’s custody of her children. This also indicates PAS Psychologist Paul Reitman’s intent was predetermined and he planned to target and falsely accuse the mother of PAS.
At this one and only visit, PAS Psychologist Paul Reitman met with Sandra Grazzini-Rucki and four of her five children for less than 30 minutes. Dr. Reitman asked the children but one question “how’s school” and all said “fine: Paul Reitman conducted no scientific evaluations, tests, or analysis.
Then based on that single meeting, Paul Reitman, without the mothers or her attorney’s knowledge and without her consent, issued an ex-parte report to the court accusing the mother of Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS). and as a result of Paul Reitman’s report, the Court issued an Ex-Parte Order on 9/7/2012.
This Ex-Parte Order on 9/7/2012 evicted the mother from her home where she and the children had lived all their lives, rendered the mother homeless, effectively vacated the mother’s parental rights, prohibited all contact with her children, and she was permanently separated from her five children.
