Law and Scientific Evidence about Shared Parenting


A new report to be published in Family Court Review explores the state of the law and the scientific evidence regarding shared parenting.  This is an important review of the scientific and legal landscape.  See Closing the Gap: Research, Policy, Practice and Shared Parenting AFCC Think Tank Final Report  by MK Pruett, JH DiFonzo

Update on 2013 Divorce Research


Just updated the Divorce Research for 2013 with some recent studies that provide new information on divorce.

Family Court Review just completed a 50 retrospective on many aspects of family courts including mediation, parent education, lawyering and more.  This complete issue is a good place to begin thinking about where family court services need to go in the future.

There are also some new findings from studies conducted in Europe that expand our understanding of the long-range impact of divorce.  See

Follow-up on Same-Sex Divorce


This is an interesting article on the courts’ responsibility regarding divorce in states that prohibit same-sex marriage.  In this article the authors argue that even in states that prohibit same-sex marriage there are legal mechanisms for granting a divorce.  They identify three possible strategies– use the current state laws governing divorce and apply these to the same-sex couples, use the laws of the state in which the couple was married as a basis for the divorce or through the use of the equitable powers act.

The authors also argue that denying couples the right to divorce is far more harmful.
