Single Mothers and Child Support: The Possibilities and Limits of Child Support Policy.
Children and Youth Services Review, v17 n1-2 p203-30 1995
Cites data from 214 welfare families to support the argument that tougher child-support enforcement can reduce welfare dependency. Suggests that the best way to mend the child-support system for welfare-reliant children is to create a system that takes into account the real-life situations of mothers and fathers, as well as norms regarding responsibility and obligation.
