Welcome to the Finding Fault project blog. Finding Fault is a Nuffield Foundation funded research study exploring the law on the ground for divorce and civil partnership dissolution in England & Wales. The research phase of the project is now complete – with four reports and summaries available to download.

The study established that there was a clear and urgent need for reform of the law. We are delighted that the government has responded with a consultation and the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill, both strongly informed by the research evidence.  The focus of the blog is now on ensuring that the debates on the Bill are fully informed by the research evidence.

Finding Fault is led by Professor Liz Trinder (Exeter University) in partnership with Mark Sefton, Jens Scherpe (University of Cambridge), One Plus One, Bryson Purdon Social Research, Resolution and Wikivorce.

The project has been funded by the Nuffield Foundation, but the views expressed are those of the authors and not necessarily the Foundation. Visit www.nuffieldfoundation.org
