Movie Info

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.

  • A vigorous but clumsily argued expose of the corrupt family-court practices that have turned one of life's more painful experiences into a $50 billion-a-year industry.

  • If this movie were a person, it would be the kind of person you'd avoid because you fear he might explode one day and you'd rather not be there when it happens.

  • The tone ranges from wounded to disgusted, but a movie positing this deep a rot in the system needs to be more measured and better made to take hold.

  • [A] melodramatic attack on America's family law system.

    Jan 9, 2014 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • Statistics are few and far between, a look at solutions from countries where divorce is supposedly more civil proves too thin to be useful, and, worst of all, the victims's stories are largely flimsy and one-sided.

  • 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.
