Sharing the care of children post-separation: family dynamics and labour force capacity

Paper presented at the Family Strengths Conference, University of Newcastle, November 1999

This paper presents new data on the circumstances of income support parents who share the care of their children on a substantially equal basis post-separation. The aim of the paper is to explore the different patterns of shared care arrangements, the extent of flexibility in the arrangements, and factors that impact on the arrangements in the context of the labour force capacity of the parents.

The paper was presented at the Family Strengths Conference at the University of Newcastle on 22 November 1999.
