Who Pays? Receipt of Child Support in the United States.
Teachman, Jay D.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v53 n3 p759-72 Aug 1991
Examined determinants of receipt of child support using data from national survey which included ever-divorced mothers (n=673). Results indicated receipt of child support was mostly dependent upon circumstances of fathers (income, marital status, physical proximity, and whether he visited his children). Circumstances of mothers and children had no direct impact on whether support was received. (Author/ABL)
