The Film

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.

What others are saying about Divorce Corp

I love this movie. This is an eye opener. Corrupt Judges Corrupt Lawyers. Please Watch! It's time for change. It happened to me. No more victims.

Divorce Corp is a powerful film that accurately depicts the abuses and corruption of the divorce industry. No one watching this film can have any doubt that the divorce machinery needs much more than piecemeal reform; its very existence must be fundamentally reassessed and its destructive practices must be forced to justify themselves. Divorce Corp is a valuable documentary for anyone concerned with judicial abuse, the decline of traditional marriage, the proliferation of single-parent households, the government manipulation of children, and the many societal ills that result. I recommend it highly.

One of my life goals was to help reform the family court system. Unfortunately I don't have the resources to make a film like your's to help spread that message. Now I do. Thank you so much for making this documentary!

Realistic, accurate and insightful. This movie gives a clear picture of a very sad reality.

Powerful and concise. This documentary finally documents the unconstitutional abuses of so called "Family Courts". Designed to destroy families and hurt children while enriching lawyers and corrupt judges. A long time coming, after 40 years of increasingly evil divorce laws, America is finally being told what corruption exists in our courts. I can only hope more documentarians and journalists take up the cause. We needed this movie!

...kudos to writer-producer-director Joe Sorge for bringing us this riveting, and revolting, assessment of divorce, and family courts in general...Whether you can check it out in the theater or on DVD/Blu-ray, "Divorce Corp." is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I watched Divorce Corp Saturday night. It was a true eye opener. I wish more people would see it.

This is a phenomenal expose on the realities of the family law system in this country. These injustices are rampant in our system and children and families are being destroyed daily. Parents have constitutional rights that are wholesale being violated on a daily basis. Every legislator should see this and take action to fix this absurd and unconstitutional system.

Ron P, Rotten Tomatoes

Thank God you all made this into a movie.

It's not a Hollywood blockbuster film, but the documentary doesn't lie. Our audience laughed out loud, cried, shook their heads and nodded, and at the end of the film said it's about time someone took the problems and wrapped them into a nice bow and made the bold statement we're onto it and we won't let it go on any longer.

I have a funny feeling this movie is going to open up a can of worms and create positive change. Fingers crossed.

Brandon McCarthy, Facebook

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.

Brent Simon, Rotten Tomatoes

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".

Doug George, IMDB

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.
