The only Georgia Divorce Course developed by a Psychologist immersed in divorce and family law matters in their clinical practice on a daily basis. Dr. Justin D’Arienzo, Clinical and Forensic Psychologist and Divorce Expert, routinely testifies in US Courts regarding divorce, parental fitness, parenting plans, and custodial decisions.
