Subject: Divorce
Source: San Diego Union-Tribune
Date: October 6, 13, 20 and 27, 1997


In this extensive four-part series, the Union-Tribune examines the role of divorce courts and those involved with them. The series takes a look at everyone from lawyers to judges to family counselors, and reveals how they are either helping or hindering those going through the divorce process. The various ways in which parting couples can separate -- whether peacefully, contentiously, or in some cases, abusively -- is also examined, and the role the courts play in pushing couples toward those stances also comes into play. Issues of child custody and child support are also discussed, as are issues about the very nature of divorce courts themselves -- from the viewpoints of those who enter them, run them, and profit from them.
