Father’s Rights in Balance

A study by an Australian College has found that divorced and separated fathers are spending more time with their children than the traditional every other weekend visitation schedule.

Dr. Bruce Smyth sampled 408 separated parents.  He found that, regardless of the parenting arrangements, children usually moved between homes two to four times every two weeks.

The study found that separated parents were cooperating with each other in balancing their schedules with the children’s needs and being more flexible in their timesharing. This is good news for both father’s rights and mother’s rights.
