About

Researching Reform is a project dedicated to child welfare in the family justice system and was started in 2008. In that same year, The Times newsaper nominated the project’s website a useful resource for families going through divorce and in 2009, JD Supra voted the project’s editor, who has a legal background, one of their Savvy Women in The Law. Today, we’re very privileged to have a following both in the House of Commons and the House of Lords.

Researching Reform is dedicated to simplifying the family justice system and finding solutions to the current problems faced by families and practitioners alike.  Researching Reform produces events, podcasts and articles all relating to the practical realities of divorce and child welfare-based policies, as experienced in the family justice system and beyond. We are dedicated to the welfare of the child and this central theme runs through every project we work on.

On the online platform, you will find podcasts with professionals who work in the family courts as well as the families themselves who go through the system. The site is also home to articles relating to the system, its culture, laws and ultimately, its efficiency or lack thereof. It is also home to Divorce Manual, a general guide on what it’s really like going through the family courts in Britain as experienced by myself and others and offers suggestions on how to communicate with the system effectively. In line with that sentiment, this is also the home of The Encyclopaedia on Family and The Law, a free resource on all things family law related and is designed to be accessible to everyone.

When we’re not in cyberspace, our events like the Westminster Debates in the House of Commons, are designed to create immediate dialogue between policy makers, parents and professionals, dialogue that goes to the heart of the issues involved and ultimately leads to the fast and effective creation of solutions.

We’ve also been lucky enough to contribute to the publications below:

  1. I came across this blog when I was doing research for my own. Having been a child that went through the family justice system and witnessed first-hand the failings within it, I do strongly feel that something has to be done to improve the system.

    • Hi Katie.

      I totally agree.
      These are some children speaking out re their experiences in family law courts.
      Every country which has adopted the British legal system is experiencing similar problems.

      http://www.courageouskids.net/index.htm
      We, the Courageous Kids Network, are a growing group of young people, whose childhood was shattered by biased and inhumane court rulings, which forced us to live with our abusive parent, while restricting or sometimes completely eliminating contact with our loving and protective parent.
