MEDIA SOURCE: CHAIR NED HOLSTEIN AVAILABLE FOR COMMENT
ON FAMILY COURT DOCUMENTARY DIVORCE CORP.
BOSTON – National Parents Organization is pleased to contribute to the growing dialogue surrounding the anticipated release of Divorce Corp., a documentary film that portrays the divorce industry as a “big business” that damages families. Divorce Corp. is set to be released in theaters across the nation on January 10, 2014.
“This film has the potential to accelerate much needed family court reform across our nation,” said Ned Holstein, MD, MS, Founder and Chair of the National Parents Organization. “The movie creates an opportunity for people of good faith to unite for the benefit of our children who continue to feel the negative impacts of our broken family court system.”
As an expert source on family court reform, as well as the damage the current system can have on children, Dr. Holstein is available to discuss the larger issues at play in this documentary film. Additionally, he can speak to the benefits of shared parenting when it comes to the health and well-being of children of divorce or separation.
“One of the best things about this film is that it presents an alternative — a living, functioning alternative, as currently practiced in Scandinavian countries, with shared parenting and without profiteering,” Holstein said.
