Divorce/Alimony Reform Movements

Due to antiquated laws and the arbitrary nature of alimony awards, several national and state reform movements have been started. Given that most western democracies have divorce laws that are far more equitable than those in the United States, we are well behind in this area.  Massachusetts is the state that has made the most, albeit quite modest, progress.

Families Civil Liberties Union (FCLU) - fantastic site and one that is in near 100% agreement with my views.

Blogs/Divorce News/Alimony News/Other

Dr. Helen Smith's blog -  Often addresses the effects of discrimination on men.

FAQ on American Judicial and Legal Corruption - A pretty depressing site by Dr. Les Sachs about corruption in the legal system. Although Dr. Sachs generalizes a bit too much for me,  I find myself more and more in agreement with him.  

Family-In-Law - Michael Boulette, a Twin Cities attorney, writes about family law in Minnesota, nationally and even internationally. Boutelle's site is very informative and his comments are thought provoking.

Structured Settlements  - I am not sure how many people have structured settlements but if you do this site has some information regarding how to handle them when going through a divorce.

The Love and Iron Project - Lots of good information. Although there have not been many posts lately some are still getting comments.

Real World Divorce - Great online book about the reality of divorce.

The Unknown History of MISANDRY - Huge and fascinating, albeit somewhat odd, site on the history of misandry - the hatred of men. Lots of information on unethical and criminal behavior in the divorce system.

Using Google and Google News (e.g. Google News Alimony Reform) to search for specific topics is probably the best way to stay informed on current divorce and alimony news.
