Abstract

This paper examines poverty and family structure as the two major components affecting the development of the children of broken unions, and concludes that on balance, it is family care that is more significant than poverty. Nevertheless, governmental solutions have focused on providing more resources to the affected children; this strategy does not seem to have had much success. The paper is forthcoming in the International Journal of the Jurisprudence of the Family, published on line by William Hein & Co.
