Description of research project
This project is centered on looking at how parents in the State of Michigan with a child custody court order share caregiving work. Participating parents are administered a survey that collects basic demographic information. They are also interviewed about how they came to their court order and how they share caregiving work: grooming, education, health care, emotional support.

This semester, we will be finishing up recruitment, organization of data, and moving onto analysis of the data. Analysis includes coding and writing memos. Students should have previous research experience and a sociological background.
