Child Support Guidelines and the Economic Well-Being of Children in the United States.
Pirog-Good, Maureen A.
Family Relations, v42 n4 p453-62 Oct 1993
Notes enormous variation in magnitude of child support awards obtained by using state child support guidelines. Says variation does not result from cost-of-living differences across states. Contends that noncustodial parents do not pay fair share of the costs of raising their children. Advocates making larger awards, expressing awards as percentage of income, and implementing child support assurance program. (Author/NB)
