Discussion paper, no. 30, July 2019

The division of care and responsibility for children, including financial care, is usually determined by the family law of the State. This study identifies some of the most prevalent custody and child maintenance regimes in cases of divorce, dissolution of a civil union, and separation of parents. It examines the various regimes with particular emphasis on their impact on gender equality and women’s rights. This paper was produced for UN Women’s flagship report, “Progress of the world’s women 2019–2020” (#6330), and released as part of the UN Women discussion paper series. (From the website).
