Divorce Corp
With over 85 percent of Fairfield County litigants in Family Court pro se (without attorney representation), it's important to be informed on this $50 billion industry.

This is a very timely discussion as the state Legislature is currently voting on reforming family laws and the Connecticut Practice Book. The public needs to provide their input into the reform needed to serve their families and minor children.

For roughly 50 percent of American couples, divorce is an unpleasant fact of life. Dealing with divorce and its effects destroys lives, contributes to domestic violence, and bankrupts individuals every day.

Family law, which barely existed for most of the country's history, has morphed into a massive machine over the past several decades.

Family courts carry on in a dark corner of the American legal system, where fiefdoms and tyrants thrive, where children are taken hostage for profit, and where lives are destroyed as a matter of course. 

Now, in a shocking documentary, Divorce Corp exposes the inner workings of the $50 billion a year U.S. family law industry, shining a bright light on the appalling waste, misguided policy-making, and shameless collusive practices that are experienced daily as a part of America's divorce epidemic.

Narrated by acclaimed interventional psychotherapist Dr. Drew, Divorce Corp shows in frightening detail how an unchecked system has led to an unholy alliance between trial lawyers, judges, and divorce industry professionals, all capitalizing on the demise of marriage and family bonds.

Exposed are the fraudulent and abusive practices that are often ignored by many within the legal establishment, and the family movement. 

Through extensive research and interviews with the nation's top lawyers, mediators , judges, politicians, litigants and journalists, Divorce Corp uncovers how children are utilized as pawns for political gain--torn from their loved ones and homes by misguided judges, overzealous attorneys and custody evaluators, and where distraught parents are left to pick up the pieces.

The U.S. family courts are functioning as unregulated, extra-consitutional fiefdoms, catalyzing conflict and precipitating domestic violence, while dragging cases out for years, resulting in a rash of social ills, including bankruptcy, suicide and destroyed lives. 

Whatever the reasons for divorce, this is a must-see documentary that is vital to the preservation of families, and the future of U.S. domestic policy making. 

All proceeds for these two movie screenings will go to St. Jude's Children's Hospital.
