Documentary film blasts family court system

Posted: Updated:

The horrors and high cost of ugly divorce and custody battles hit the big screen.

Divorce Corp., a documentary film that claims to expose the excesses of family courts around the nation, premiered Thursday night at the Lefont Theatre.

The controversial movie claims family courts are ripping people off and ruining families.

A mother who did not want to reveal her identity said she and her daughter are victims of biased judges and lawyers seeking to cash in on their misfortune.

The mother said her husband sexually abused their young daughter for years.

CBS Atlanta first reported her story last year.

Investigators' findings supported the girl's claims. But that was not enough for a Fulton County family court judge, who granted the father custody after the couple divorced.
