Hi,

I'm having a little trouble with the following sentence which I am trying to translate into Spanish:

It seems the girl's parents have personal reasons for wanting to keep her away from you.

The context is in a formal letter.

My attempt is as follows, but it doesn't seem very neat to me!

Parece que los padres de la chica tienen razones personales por querer mantener a la alejado de usted.

Would be very grateful for a native speaker to clarify.

Many thanks,

Chewie
