Nuffield FoundationIn conjunction with Emma Hitchings of Bristol University, Senior Lecturer Ms Jo Miles has won an award from the Nuffield Foundation to undertake research into final settlements in financial disputes following divorce.

This project will address two important gaps in the research literature identified by the interim report of the Norgrove Family Justice Review: final settlements/agreements in ancillary relief cases (i.e. financial and property matters following divorce) and if orders are made by consent, the stage at which consent is reached. (Consent orders are court orders which reflect the parties' agreement, rather than being judicially imposed following contested litigation.)

The project will run from April 2012 until July 2013.

For further information, please refer to the Nuffield Foundation website.
