|The documentary Divorce Corp will be released Jan. 10, 2014|
"A documentary that exposes the appalling fiscal waste, shameless collusive practices and rampant corruption within the U.S. family law industry. More money and more people flow through the family courts than any other court system in America combined - now grossing over $50 billion a year. But because of good intentions run amok, misplaced financial incentives, cronyism, and a lack of checks and balances, family courts have become self-corrupting, extra-constitutional fiefdoms that serve the local legal community instead of the general public. Rather than help victims of crimes, these courts often create them. And rather than help parents and children move on, as they are mandated to do, these courts - and their associates - drag out their cases for years, sometimes decades, ultimately resulting in a rash of social ills including bankruptcy, violence, the bastardization of feminism and the criminalization of civil laws. Solutions to the crisis are sought out in Scandinavian countries where marriage dissolution is handled without attorneys, courts, or the turbulence and family disintegration so common in the United States."In the updated credits, James Scurlock has both a producer and writer credit. Scurlock is the writer/director of the critically acclaimed documentary Maxed Out: Hard Times, Easy Credit and the Era of Predatory Lenders. Divorce Corp is set for release in theaters on January 10, 2014. For further information and updates, visit the Divorce Corp Twitter page at @divorcecorp.
