Nonresident Fathers and Children's Well-Being: A Meta-Analysis.
Amato, Paul R.; Gilbreth, Joan G.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v61 n3 p557-73 Aug 1999
Analysis showed that fathers' payment of child support was positively associated with measures of children's well-being. The frequency of contact with nonresident fathers was not related to child outcomes in general. Reports that feelings of closeness and authoritative parenting were positively associated with children's academic success and negatively associated with children's externalizing and internalizing problems.
