Resolution invites members to participate in research into no fault divorce

Study should inform debate as to how the law might be reformed.

Resolution has invited its members to take part in a major two-year study exploring how the current law on the ground for divorce and civil partnership dissolution operates in practice. The research project is being conducted by the University of Exeter and funded by the Nuffield Foundation. It is hoped that the results of the study will inform debate about whether and how the law might be reformed.

The new study comprises three main elements: a public attitudes survey; a court scrutiny study into how the courts investigate petitions alleging adultery or unreasonable behaviour; and a petition study which will explore how petitions are produced and with what effect on the parties.
