More money flows through the family courts, and into the hands of courthouse insiders, than in all other court systems in America combined – over $50 billion a year and growing. Through extensive research and interviews with the nation’s top divorce lawyers, mediators, judges, politicians, litigants and journalists, DIVORCE CORP. uncovers how children are torn from their homes, unlicensed custody evaluators extort money, and abusive judges play god with people’s lives while enriching their friends. This explosive documentary reveals the family courts as unregulated, extra-constitutional fiefdoms. Rather than assist victims of domestic crimes, these courts often precipitate them. And rather than help parents and children move on, as they are mandated to do, these courts - and their associates - drag out cases for years, sometimes decades, ultimately resulting in a rash of social ills, including home foreclosure, bankruptcy, suicide and violence. Solutions to the crisis are sought out in countries where divorce is handled in a more holistic manner.
Divorce Corp is the centerpiece of a nationwide grassroots movement to reform the US family law system.

A back-stiffening doc that makes a persuasive case for the reform of family law court, and in particular a decoupling of money from issues regarding parental custody and visitation rights.

Any divorce survivor will see rueful reminders of a destructive process. Any engaged couple should see it, period.

Just saw 'Divorce Corp' in Boston on January 23rd, 2014. The Boston Embassy Theatre reported it having the largest ever turnout for a special showing. I estimated approx. 200 in attendance. At conclusion of the documentary there was overwhelming applause, followed by a very interesting panel of 4, assembled by Ned Holstein of the NPO (National Parents Organization) to Q&A, with audience participation. By a requested showing of 'hands', the audience was well represented by divorced mothers and fathers, family law reformers, along with those that feed off the misery from children of divorce. An outstanding film that brings bona fide legitimacy towards unveiling the corruption behind the black robe of judges and their disgraceful and criminal dealings of the kangaroo court, called "Family Court".

It is hard to get the word out on the injustice system out Family Court system is providing. This documentary does a very good job. Unfortunately a lot more could be said. The enemy within is not so much communists or terrorists, but family court. But its a start. Unless something is done Family court will destroy America.
