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 cases out 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.

Things I already knew , how unfair the system is when it comes to Child Support. Also listening to the cases and declarations of other people had to say.
1.) mediators asking questions not really relevant to what is important , just setting up for making one look bad dad and loose credibility
2.) complex formula and computation on awarding child support
3.) no accountability of the recipient to receive money from the paying dad.
In the United State the constitution provides for a presumption of innocence until proven guilty. In Family Court wild allegations are enough to strip a healthy and loving parent of their most sacred responsibilities. A criminal has more legal rights tham a divorcing couple. The "broad discretion" of the courts along with near absolute immunity for all family court professionals makes for epic disasters that continue to spiral our society into an abyss that consumes mind boggling resources and endorse mufti-generational abuse of our children.
There should be a rebuttable presumption of parental rights. There needs to be a standard or proof, before the court can interfere with the parent child relationship. The judges and court professionals need to be held accountable for their actions.
