I could go on, but I have been beaten to this post by Steven Ballard (left) of the Massachusetts Divorce & Family Law Blog. In his post Is Family Law a Masterful Scam? A Criminal Enterprise? he responds to a (fairly typical) commenter, in a more eloquent way than I could:
"People who are divorcing and fighting each other need to take responsibility for their own mistakes rather than simply blaming their lawyers and the system, and subscribing to inane, ridiculous conspiracy theories about lawyers and judges who are supposedly getting rich at their clients' expense."and he concludes:
"Change the law, improve the system, yes. But in your own individual cases, you should always take a good hard look in the mirror before assessing blame for problems in your own home."Quite.
