The Business Of Divorce

Divorce is painful but it’s also a very profitable business. Joseph Sorge is the writer and director of Divorce Corp. The movie is a powerful and chilling documentary on the divorce industry. It is a really well done piece that outlines the destructive nature of the family court system. Before he began writing and filmmaking, Joseph earned a B.S. degree from M.I.T., and an M.D degree from Harvard, was a professor of molecular biology at The Scripps Research Institute, and founded a biotechnology company, Stratagene, which he took public and later sold to a large medical supply company.  In this episode we talk about:

  • A behind the scenes look at how attorneys and judges work on divorce cases.
  • Why money becomes a major factor during divorce hearings.
  • How divorce is portrayed and practiced in other countries.
  • How 50/50 parenting impacts the wellbeing of children.
  • Why some couples use finances during divorce to get revenge on each other.
  • Why the divorce system is biased toward the “breadwinner”.
  • The inequalities of child support based on gender and salaries.
  • Cultural and gender biases that are inherent in the divorce system.
  • Can the divorce system in the United States change?
  • Joe shares ideas on fixing the system.
  • Strategies on picking the best lawyer to represent you.
  • How to mentally prepare when going into court.
