Abstract:     
Interviews were conducted with 60 young people aged 12-19 in Australia, concerning their views about parenting and financial arrangements after separation. Half the young people reported that they had no say at all in where they would live after separation. A quarter said they were never able to see their non-resident parent when they wanted to. There was a strong relationship between young people's perceptions of the fairness of the parenting arrangements and the extent to which they were allowed to participate in making those arrangements. Half said that they did not have enough time with their non-resident parent. Having a continuing and meaningful relationship with both parents and with siblings, was very important to them. More than a third favoured arrangements spending equal time with each parent. The young people were also very concerned with issues about fairness between first and second families, both in terms of time availability and financial provision.
