Divorce Industry Creates New Profit-Centers

It is not what a lawyer tells me I may do; but what humanity, reason, and justice tell me I ought to do.” --Edmund Burke


The article below gives an excellent example of how the legal industry and the family law injustice system creates new ways to intrude into peoples lives in their ever-increasing quest for more money….in opening up additional opportunities by creating new profit-centers and expanding their influence and control into them.

More laws, means the expansion of government and related agencies to be able to administer the implemented laws. Pretty soon the number of people who are either in government or governmentally supported agencies will outnumber the people who are supporting all this with their taxes. Is it any wonder that the government is seeking ever-increasing avenues and sources of income to support their reckless growth?

California Legalizes Same-Sex Divorce

By Jim Untershine

Successful breadwinners of a same-sex household will be targeted by officers of the Family Court when their dependent partner is now forced to file for divorce. Instead of moving on with their lives, or amicably separating with conditions, the Family Court will now force the financial disclosure from both and attempt to establish a cash flow between them that is unfair enough to entice further litigation.

Palimony and domestic partnerships have always been a vehicle for allowing poor partners to make rich partners their slaves, but now there is no option - a judge must be involved to dissolve a marriage. With an atmosphere of no-fault divorce and an absence of a binding prenuptial agreement - the only arguments that will ever be heard in Family Court will regard the accuracy of each partner’s financial disclosures. The Family Court will always make the deep pockets partner pay all court costs, attorney’s fees, psychiatrists fees, evaluator fees, unaffordable alimony, and outrageous child support payments (even for someone else’s kid) until the kid finally graduates college.

Equal Treatment For Men??

In a blatant show of gender bias in the government, see how it treats women in domestic violence cases and then see if you can find any mention of what kind of equal treatment men get under the same circumstances. You guessed it, they get none!

This treatment flies in the face of government statistics that show that women who abuse men is about the same as the number of men who abuse women. Then when you take into consideration that a majority of men don’t report case of DV against them and then the ratio changes into showing women as the move violent of the species. [Read an earlier blog on the subject]

Yet, where is the consideration for the creation of a Violence Against Men Act similar to the Violence Against Women Act? Where is the public outcry in response to that outrage?? The majority of the media ignores it, as is typical of the feminist NOW influence.

Senator Biden Wants to Give Your Ex-Wife a Free Attorney...

May 26th, 2008 by Glenn Sacks

"When it comes to domestic violence legislation, the road to hell is paved with good intentions and Senator Joe Biden (D-Del) owns an asphalt company.

"Biden’s latest domestic violence bill is the National Domestic Violence Volunteer Attorney Network Act, which amends Biden’s Violence Against Women Act to create an extensive network of volunteer attorneys to help abused women. The attorneys would provide free legal help in forging divorce or separation agreements and in winning child custody...[READ MORE]

Too Many Lawyers Are Ruining Our Country

"I don't think you can make a lawyer honest by an act of legislature. You've got to work on his conscience. And his lack of conscience is what makes him a lawyer." --Will Rogers

You have probably noticed the proliferation of laws with each passing year. With all these laws, many financial benefits are derived by the legal system in the process of their enforcement.

This spills over into the family law system whereby it is a monstrous cash-cow that milks the parties and sucks the family assets out of them to pay their fees. [Read Dr. Charles E. Corry's article on "How To Make Lawyers Rich And Destroy Civilization."]

The family law system is a system that is in itself a self-policing and self-perpetuating entity. The lawyers in the legislature make the ever-increasing number of rules that feed a growing legal profession's appetite with laws that create adversarial relationships requiring lawyers to handle them. These adversarial proceedings are then taken to a court, administered by a lawyer-turned-judge to rule in such a way as to retain jurisdiction [such as retained when lifetime alimony is granted] on the adversarial parties thus insuring a tentacle-enfolding stranglehold on the parties for the rest of their lives. This process is a self-serving way to provide job security for the legal profession.

An interesting commentary can be seen in the following article which talks about the role of lawyers in our government which affects and touches on just about every aspect of our lives.

The Lawyers' Party
Written by Bruce Walker for the American Thinker on March 17, 2008

Today, we are drowning in laws, we are contorted by judicial decisions, we are driven to distraction by omnipresent lawyers in all parts of our once private lives. America has a place for laws and lawyers, but that place is modest and reasonable, not vast and unchecked. When the most important decision for our next president is whom he will appoint to the Supreme Court, the role of lawyers and the law in America is too big. When lawyers use criminal prosecution as a continuation of politics by other means, as happened in the lynching of Scooter Libby and Tom Delay, then the power of lawyers in America is too great. When House Democrats sue America in order to hamstring our efforts to learn what our enemies are planning to do to use, then the role of litigation in America has become crushing. [READ MORE]

A Source Of Revenue For The States

Government does not have a revenue problem; government has a spending problem. Government does not have a revenue problem; government has a priority problem. It is time that we begin to fine tune our focus and decide what the priority of government ought to be. --Marsha Blackburn


The following is a letter sent to Florida’s Governor Charlie Christ and all the state legislators pertaining to a study that shows the cost to the state resulting in part from the inequitable alimony laws as we have delineated in earlier posts.

Upon reading the study and agreeing with its premises, you will find that this letter could serve as a template for a similar letter that you could utilize in your state to send to your legislators and news media.

Text of Letter:

Dear Governor Christ:

In order for Florida to obtain increased revenues to cover current budget shortfalls, please consider a way to do so by taking advantage of the savings to be realized in the following manner.

1. Presently, it is estimated that the current cost to Florida taxpayers resulting from divorce and unwed childbearing is $1.953 billion dollars per year at a minimum. This information is according to a 2008 studyThe Taxpayer Cost of Divorce and Unwed Childbearing by Georgia State University economist Ben Scafidi mentioned in an April 15, 2008 MSNBC news articleStudy: Divorce, Unwed Parenting Costs Billions.”

2. The Florida Statutes 61.08 governing the dissolution of marriage alimony laws in Florida is one of the leading causes of the increase in the number of people who comprise a major part of the statistics leading to the above figures.

a. The combination of no-fault divorces and the wide discretion allowed judges by F.S. 61.08 provides tremendous financial incentives for one spouse to leave the other and be guaranteed a lifetime of support by placing the other in what a Idaho Supreme Court Justice Shephard in his dissent has defined as involuntary servitude [Olsen v. Olsen, 98 Idaho 10 (1976)]

b. The adversarial nature of dissolutions resulting from these statutes, which allow unlimited discretion of the judges and inconsistent alimony awards, gives rise to battles between the spouses that do little other than to drain the resources and assets of the parties and redistribute them to the legal industry.

c. Parties who are subject to a lifetime of alimony are frequently driven into the lowest income brackets and are unable to provide adequate funds to ex-spouses and/or for child support thus necessitating the recipients to rely on public welfare.

d. Parties who are recipients of lifetime alimony welfare have little or no incentive to become self-supporting and useful members of society. This is a poor role model for the children they raise.

3. As it stands, F.S. 61.08 is violative of the Florida Constitution’s “right to privacy” and the “separation of powers” between the legislature and the judiciary. [A memo of law supporting this claim can be provided upon your request.]

4. Resulting from these inequitable alimony laws is a phenomenon commonly referred to as a Marriage Strike.

a. A marriage strike occurs when prospective spouses find that the outlook of marriage with its 50% divorce rate and concurrent possibility of financial suicide imposed by the F.S. 61.08 laws acts as a deterrent to getting married. Also, it occurs when a spouse-recipient of lifetime alimony finds that to get re-married, that they would lose the alimony welfare payments should they do so. As a result, co-habitation ensues and with it oftentimes comes children from this union. This statement is supported in the above study.

b. The Marriage Strike is a well-known and well-documented phenomenon that is leading to the increased destruction of the institution of marriage, as we have known it. Click here and here for details.

What can you do to alleviate this problem and do your part to capture the savings for the State of Florida?

The biggest step you could take would be to have a bill introduced to revise F.S. 61.08 to implement a Texas-style alimony law that limits post-dissolution support to a 3 year maximum with pre-qualification to be used for rehabilitation.

The removal of the impediments to marriage and incentives to divorce will go a long way to solving the financial problems Florida is facing as a result of the Divorce and Unwed Childbearing burden. This is an easily solvable problem that legislators up to now have ignored.

It appears that without your intervention, Floridians will pay the price of supporting the legal industry by sacrificing the services provided by the revenue shortfall. Your action in preventing this shortfall can be realized by the savings that can be had in reforming F.S. 61.08.

Your help in solving this problem that faces Floridians will be greatly appreciated by your constituents.

Cordially Yours,
