Collaborative LawA recent study carried out by academics at the Universities of Warwick and Reading has found no evidence to support a commonly held view that family courts in England and Wales discriminate against fathers.

The study gathered information by looking at a large number of cases which were dealt with in 2011.

The finding was that, in the majority of cases, applications made by fathers for contact with their children were in fact “overwhelmingly successful”.

Some concerns were raised about the need to put children’s welfare over adult expectations, the report was mainly positive. One of the authors of the report, Dr Maebh Harding said:

“Whilst it’s true that mothers were usually the primary care giver in contact applications, this was simply a reflection of the social reality that women are more likely to take on the role after a relationship breakdown.

“But there was actually no indication of any bias towards mothers over fathers by the courts”
