Abstract

This study examined father involvement among non-custodial fathers from divorced families in Maine and New Hampshire. Measures of involvement included days and nights of contact, attendance at children's events, participation in decision-making, and celebration of major holidays with children. Results were commensurate with other studies and highlighted the importance of parental conflict and geographic distance in determining father-child contact. The author makes several recommendations for policy-makers and practitioners.
