The statistics on divorce are well-known and oft-cited: forty percent of all marriages in the United States will end in divorce, and the numbers look to keep growing. Divorce Corp, however, goes beyond those familiar statistics to address corruption and greed in one of the fastest-growing court systems.
More than fifty billion dollars flow through family courts in a single year, and the documentary looks at some of the practical realities of moving that kind of money in such a short amount of time.
Divorce Corp, from filmmaker Joseph Sorge, pays close attention to the impact of divorce on the children who are affected. In many cases, children are torn away from one parent or the other, or torn from their homes entirely, and the film does not hesitate to show this reality in all of its painful, honest truth.
