      Justin Chang Variety 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. Jan 14, 2014 Full Review Matt Zoller Seitz RogerEbert.com 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. Rated: 2/4 Jan 10, 2014 Full Review Nicolas Rapold New York Times 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. Jan 9, 2014 Full Review Brent Simon Paste Magazine 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. Rated: 7.3/10 Jan 13, 2014 Full Review Eric Monder Film Journal International Documentary tackles the divorce industry with the same zeal as the lawyers it rebukes. Jan 9, 2014 Full Review Roger Moore Tribune News Service Infuriating, but lacking the balance to be the take-down of a corrupt system that it claims to be. Rated: 2.5/4 Jan 7, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews

      court f The most accurate representation of really what goes on in the Family Court system. $60 billion flows through our nation's family courts annually and racketeering is an epidemic. The crime is real and it is organized and it is every day devastating the lives of children and parents. Unethical attorneys, so-called experts, and complicit and/or permissive judges have turned the destruction of children and families and siphoning of their assets and income into an industry, with family law pleadings representing little more than paper for their printing press. Law enforcement, the media, and the judicial system itself turn a blind eye to the ubiquitous crime, attributing everything to a "he said, she said" situation, or to the ranting of a disgruntled litigant. That is merely cover-up and abdication of duty Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member sad but unfortunately true, something many of us are unaware if we have been amicably divorced and no children, unfortunately i have seen the ramifications of this travesty in other's lives and had a hard time understanding it.. this should be outlawed and reformed.. children's (and parent's) lives are drastically affected by this money making misuse of family law.. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Divorce Corp is Sadly too true. Lawyers will do anything to get Dollars from anyone with money. This must stop! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A scary movie that insists you need to move to Scandinavia before getting a divorce. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Essential viewing for anyone interested in Family Law, Child Protection, and Family/Play Therapy. Dotes not include personality disorders (Axis II, Cluster B) as motives for conflictual behavior and blames the system, which is absolutely appropriate but isn't the whole story. Be sure to watch the YouTube interviews on DivorceCorp YouTube channel. If you're in Colorado and want to organize for change see boulderparentsupport.com Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member A shocking truth about the law system in USA. More particularly the divorce system where the judges are considered gods and are let to get away with everything. Watching this you'll ask yourself "is it possible for a person to be so cold hearted?" Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
