Nov. 2017, Dr. Monty was appointed to do perform court-evaluations of custodial disputes related to parental alienation in Alabama, Georgia and New Jersey.

Parental alienation is more than just writing the usual idiomatic phrases dealing with losing your children. In order to be successful in working with disenfranchised parents, an expert has to develop an ongoing network of individuals who corroborate his court testimony. I have been involved not only with psychological and therapeutic issues, but also founded Fathers Rights Metro, National Association of Fathers and the National Parents Rights Association. I also work with Harvard educated attorneys and therapists who have devoted their lives to support the reunification of families.

Dr. Monty is brilliant in the culture of dark forces impeding the accessibility to custodial rights of the disenfranchised parent. His genius is only outshone by his tenacity to rescue his clients from improper or inaccurate decision making by our judiciary. Dr. Monty is a virtual one man “legal” army. — Dr Marcus Wells, M.D.

Dr. Weinstein testified this past week in Paulding County Georgia. Court qualified him as an expert in parental alienation, reunification therapy, family psychology and family therapy. He was able to expose severe parental alienation and make a record. He is now targeting other states such as Colorado, New York and North Carolina.

Expertise in custody, parental alienation and family systems, with several special cases handled in Alpharetta, GA.

In November 2016, Dr. Weinstein was once again qualified by a Justice of the Georgia Superior Court as an expert in parental alienation, psychological aspects of sex abuse and family therapy in a major case in suburban Atlanta. The client was pro se and asked Dr. Weinstein the appropriate questions to qualify him. The substance of Dr. Weinstein’s testimony was about how the removal the children from the parent had a devastating effect upon all concerned. Within the past three years, Dr. Weinstein has opined and prevailed on his theories of PAS in Colorado, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York and Georgia.



  • Get an expert that understands this phenomenon and can educate the court on this
  • Get an expert who is not intimidated by the court or lstatus quo
  • Do not leave the marital home when one party files for divorce as this will become the status quo and will hurt your chances to obtain joint custody
  • Do not agree to go before any court evaluator that does not understand PAS or who is chosen by one side and not the other
  • If a Guardian ad litem does not understand this phenomenon ask that he/she be recused
  • Beware of any settlement negoitated by the attorneys which does not give you equitable rights



“[…] in forty-five years of practice in being on the bench, the Court has never met a better or more heavily credentialed behaviorist than Dr. Weinstein. I’m very impressed with his enormous background and not physically, of course, but I think he’s an amazing individual,” Judge Philip Roan, Larimer County District Court, Fort Collins, Colorado, in open court Dec. 7, 2007.

Survival List for Litigants

Undergoing a custodial dispute can be a harrowing and debilitating experience. Unless you are vigilant in protecting your parenting time from the onset of your separation from your spouse, you can lose vital parenting time and even the right to see your child, especially if you are a father. It is therefore crucial for you to know all of your rights before you embark on a custodial dispute.

Dr. Monty, I can’t thank you enough for all your help and guidance in turning around our case, which had floundered for almost seven years. If I had known what an asset your presence and experience would be I would have contacted you years ago. Because of you, my son and I are quite close to being reunited after an unnecessary and difficult absence. You have given an amazing child back his childhood and a devastated mother back her faith in people. You are by all accounts a Mensch whose work with mothers and fathers I am delighted to support.

Your assistance in this case is most appreciated. It was wonderful to have someone known for his advocacy of father’s rights, to be an expert for a mother who was alienated from her children.

In order to be successful in a custodial dispute, a seasoned litigant must leave the box and think of creative ways to navigate through the court system. One should not use parental alienation if in fact it does not exist in your particular case. However, if PAS does exist, one should validate it in its entirety by using methodologies that prove this phenomenon. One cannot use attorneys or court psychologists who do not understand Parental Alienation and/or Parental Alienation Syndrome.

Additionally, one should learn through a skilled attorney, how to impeach a court evaluator or law guardian who usually corroborate with each other to achieve an outcome that is not in your or your child s best interest. Scientific methodology is usually not understood by the court or its agents and that is why one must consult an expert that understands meaningful theories on child development, family systems and parental alienation.

Most mental health practitioners, despite their credentials, cannot stand up in court to rigorous voir dires and cross examinations. One must look carefully at their track records, both positive and negative. I have been a licensed family therapist for over 30 years and am also a nationally certified psychologist, a fellow of the American Psychotherapy Association and a founder of the National Association of Fathers where I spent years advocating for accessibility of children to their parents. I have successfully testified in thousands of custodial and abuse cases to help gain disenfranchised parents their children.

Broadway v. Broadway, Alabama Matter that went to the Court of Appeals:
Court of Civil Appeals of Alabama.

Decided: September 26, 2014

Monty Weinstein testified that he is a licensed family therapist and psychologist who has published a number of articles, conducted research on parental alienation, and appeared on national TV to talk about parental alienation as a disorder. He defined parental alienation as the systematic and methodical removing of a noncustodial parent from the life of that parent’s child. He believed parental alienation was a form of emotional child abuse. In his opinion, there was very severe parental alienation on the part of the mother, and, in his opinion, the only way to reverse the result was to change custody of K.B. to the father, with limited visitation given to the mother, coupled with therapy for K.B. Dr. Weinstein did not believe a change of custody would cause a disruption in K.B.’s life, and he predicted numerous adverse consequences for K.B. if custody was not changed to the father. Dr. Weinstein based his opinions in part on his meetings with the father and K.B., but he did not meet with or obtain information from the mother.
