Visitation Frequency, Child Support Payment, and the Father-Child Relationship Postdivorce.
Arditti, Joyce A.; Keith, Timothy Z.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n3 p699-712 Aug 1993
Used data from 212 divorced fathers to investigate relationships between frequency of father-child contact, visitation quality, and child support payment. Found that fathers who saw their children frequently tended to live nearby, reported higher levels of father-child closeness before divorce, and were more likely to have joint custody. Found lack of significance between visitation and child support payments. (Author/NB)
