Custodial Fathers: Myths, Realities, and Child Support Policy.
Meyer, Daniel R.; Garasky, Steven
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n1 p73-89 Feb 1993
Examined three data sets to explore assumptions about custodial fathers: there are few father-only families, most custodial fathers have remarried, many single fathers are widowers, custodial fathers have high incomes, and fathers primarily receive custody of older boys. Concluded that many assumptions are untrue and that child support policies should follow same principles regardless of who has custody. (Author/NB)
