By Cheryl Wetzstein - The Washington Times - Friday, November 14, 2014
Advocates for reform of the nation’s family court system are coming to the Washington, D.C., area this weekend for a conference on divorce, child support and related issues.
Organizers of the Inaugural Family Law Reform Conference say divorce is a $50 billion-a-year industry that operates at the expense of men, women, children and families.
“It’s time for meaningful reform of our family laws and family courts,” said medical scientist Dr. Joseph Sorge, writer/director of “Divorce Corp.,” a 2014 documentary that takes aim at corruption, greed and abuse in many family courts.
Divorce Corp. is intended to form the nucleus of a national, grassroots movement to reform the family law system.
Speakers at the conference in Alexandria this weekend will discuss alimony reform — including recent changes in laws in Massachusetts and New Jersey — as well as child custody, child support, domestic violence, parental rights, children’s rights, judicial bias and mediation..................
