‘Fraud’ in NJ Family Court
Calls resound to reform family law and stop legal abuse.
“Family Court in New Jersey in our opinion is fraud and racketeering,” said Greg Roberts, founder of the Family Civil Liberties Union. “I call it the greatest fraud every perpetrated on the American public.”
Roberts said the family court system tears families apart. While lawyers lob verbal grenades at both sides and collect money, the family is the casualty laying in the wake.
“They treat families like criminals,” Roberts said. “Once you get into the family court system, you cannot get out of the family court system until your earnings and your savings are decimated.”
The documentary “Divorce Corp” estimates divorce to be a 50-billion dollar a year industry. With little oversight, lawyers are incentivized to keep their clients in court to make as much money as possible.
“When you have money, when you have assets, and when you have big income these big firms have absolutely positively no interest in resolving your case, even if you want to,” lawyer John W. Thatcher said in recordings obtained exclusively by PIX11.
