How do child support programmes and policies vary across the world? What can we learn from the experiences of different countries? This comprehensive, comparative study looks at social and legal provisions for children of one-parent families in the UK, Scandinavia, Austria, Israel, the Netherlands and the US. It critically evaluates policy options and issues such as minimal social benefits for children, advance payment of child support, debt collection mechanisms and child custody arrangements.
