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.
