"DIVORCE WARS" goes inside the confidential world of multi-million dollar divorces to discover that these bitter conflicts are about more than just money. CNBC anchor Melissa Francis reports on the battles for control, power, and revenge that come when couples become combatants.
The CNBC Original explores this battlefield and the latest techniques for winning the war through the eyes of several high-net worth break-ups. The documentary also looks at a new business that funds the weaker side in divorce cases of the very rich to level the playing field in court--making money by getting a percentage of the final settlement.
CNBC's "Divorce Wars" reveals the secrets behind the money, the lies, the emotional pain, and the financial gain that happens when wealthy couples go from trusted allies to warring factions.
