The Implications of Complex Families for Poverty and Child Support Policy

The first webinar in the series, The Implications of Complex Families for Poverty and Child Support Policy, will be presented by two national experts in the field, Maria Cancian and Daniel R. Meyer. We often think of families with children as including a mother, father, and their children in common. However, about 40 percent of children are now born to unmarried parents, and estimates suggest that more often than not, one or both of these parents will go on to have children with other partners—that is, the mother will go on to have a child with a different father and/or the father will go on to have a child with a different mother. The complex families that result raise important challenges for poverty and child support policy.
