The Family Law System

"His first duty is to the courts and the public, not to the client. And where ever the duties of his client conflict with those, he owes as an officer of the court in the administration of Justice, the former must yield to the latter." Corpus Juris Secundum Vol. 7, Section 4.

Lawyers, Judges and Legislatures

First lets examine how laws come into existence. It all starts with our legislators who for the most part are lawyers. They create the statutes that regulate dissolutions of marriages. Family law attorneys derive their income by the very adversarial nature of the breakup of the marriages.

This nature emanates from the existence the multitude of laws regulating the dissolution and is, in most cases, designed and perpetuated to keep the parties at odds rather than attempting a mutually agreeable reconciliation and settlement. While some states are attempting to make dissolutions more equitable and granting rehabilitative alimony for up to three years (such as Indiana, Alaska and Texas) most of them are not. Permanent lifetime alimony is the norm for marriages of about 10 years or longer..

The adversarial state exists because of an endless loop of causation derived from the modern day situation in which the law has become the arbitrator and mediator of all disputes in our society. People cannot solve problems among themselves without a law; the legislatures (lawyers) create resolutions in the form of laws that are supposed to be applied by the courts; these resolutions cause more problems, creating a need for more laws, and thus the cycle begins anew.

The adversarial system of litigation exists to add nothing but complexity to an already complex society with its sole purpose being to allow the lawyers to generate a lot of fees. Its advantages exist only for the wealthy that can afford the expense that is involved in litigation.

For the average person forced into the family law judicial system, the adversarial system exists in name only and its advantages are not available to the income-challenged for whom it is suppose to be a safe haven.
