Filmmaker Angelo Lobo explores the fundamental flaws in America's court system as pertaining to the Divorce and Child Support System in this documentary that illuminates the many problems by speaking with thirty eight custodial and non-custodial parents, as well as the lawyers, judges, and county employees on both sides of the issue. Who suffers most when the Family Court system is flooded with more cases than the labor force can handle, and how does the system that so many claim is broken continue to operate as if nothing is amiss? By speaking with the experts about the ways in which some people have figured out how to profit by focusing on divorce and child support issues, as well as how countless parents are forced to pay stratospheric amounts of money in order to salvage their credit, save their homes, and stay out of jail, Support? humanizes the hot-topic issue while at the same time calling for reform within the family court system.
