Garfinkel, Irwin; And Others
Journal of Family Issues, v12 n4 p404-29 Dec 1991
Examined extent to which child support guidelines developed by states in response to Child Support Amendments of 1984 and Family Support Act of 1988 might increase child support awards and payments. Findings from three states suggest that new guidelines will increase child support payments by 47-54 percent and awards by between 77 percent and 88 percent. (Author/NB)
