Falling through the Cracks: Gaps in Child Support among Welfare Recipients.
Bartfeld, Judi
Journal of Marriage and Family, v65 n1 p72-89 Feb 2003
Examines gaps in child support among welfare recipients in Wisconsin. Documented is the extent to which breakdowns at various stages--including paternity establishment, support orders, and payments--contribute to the low rate of child support receipt. Few welfare recipients are able to successfully negotiate the child support system, and mothers frequently achieve different degrees of success with different children. (Contains 26 references and 6 tables.) (GCP)
