THE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF FAMILY COURT ON WOMEN AND CHILDREN
We know the family court experience can bring all of us to our knees emotionally, but what about economically? Most people who go through a divorce admit it can drain them financially, but going through a contentious divorce, with abuse, or custody battles thrown in, can be devastating. Is that devastation worse for women and children?
Authors Maralee McLean and Penelope Bryan join us to discuss the economic impact of family court on women and children. Penelope Bryan is Dean of the Law School of Denver Sturm College of Law where she taught family law and civil procedure for nearly 20 years. Her scholarship offers a unique blend of knowledge about family law and about the psychology and social condition of women and children, particularly those ensnared in family law courts. She has written Constructive Divorce: Procedural Justice and Sociolegal Reform.
Maralee, author of Prosecuted but Not Silenced: Courtroom Reform for Sexually Abused Children, has been published in the ABA Child Law Journal, Women’s E-News and other publications. She has testified before Congress about judicial accountability and is a national speaker and advocate for the protection of sexually abused children’s rights in courts.
