The Failure of Child Support

Gendered Systems of Inaccessibility, Inaction and Irresponsibility

Drawing on interviews with key international informants across 16 countries, this book examines how child support systems often fail to transfer payments from separated fathers to mothers and their children. It identifies how the gender order is entrenched through child support failure and offers possibilities for feminist reform.
