You’ve heard of “ambulance chasers” ? Well, how about distressed-marriage vultures ??
Apparently, it’s possible to cross state lines and shop for an easier, sleazier divorce in some states. That’s actually how it used to be before the days of so-called “divorce reform” that wound up redefining marriage altogether. This “reform” sunk all of American society to its lowest (or so we all thought) common denominator.
Some states, as far back as the 1800’s, saw the opportunity for destruction of out-of-state families as a lucrative industry to exploit. This attitude will likely have to be dealt with once again as more states re-assess the toxic impact on our society, re-thinking the social wreckage left by unilateral divorce, and looking to return to more family-friendly policies.
(Texas ad: “It’s a whole ‘nother rodeo out here.” )
The feared cross-state impact of repealing unilateral divorce is probably also one of the most formidable legislative and judicial obstacles to restoring basic 1st and 14th Amendment Constitutional guarantees that were stripped from the politically disfavored and disenfranchised class of Americans called “Respondents”.
“Family Law” firms should not be allowed to reach across states lines to increase social malaise and instability for crass commercial purposes! (It seems that such a practice qualifies as interstate commerce – and should be regulated as such at the Federal level. )
