New Families and Nonresident Father-Child Visitation.
Manning, Wendy D.; Smock, Pamela J.
Social Forces, v78 n1 p87-116 Sep 1999
Analysis of data from both waves of the National Survey of Families and Households found that nonresident fathers who formed new unions (marriage or cohabitation) did not subsequently see their nonresident children less often than other nonresident fathers. Instead, decreased visitation with nonresident children was related to number of new children, particularly new biological children. Contains 64 references. (Author/SV)
