Although it’s clearly stated in many places that courts shouldn’t arbitrarily favor mothers over fathers, it apparently still happens quite frequently. On the U.S. Census Bureau’s own website on its About Child Support page, it still clearly states, “Child support can be important to custodial parents (mostly women) and their children as a source of income received, as well as to noncustodial parents (mostly men) who make payments to help pay for the costs associated with raising their children.”
In the spring of 2010, the U.S. Census Bureau reported that an estimated 13.7 million parents had custody over children whose other parent lived somewhere else. Of these custodial parents, only one in six were fathers, which is about 17.8%.
Of the 17.8% of fathers who were custodial parents in 2010, 18.8% of them were living below poverty level. And, while there was a higher percentage of custodial mothers living below poverty, mothers were also less likely to be employed than custodial fathers and more likely to receive public assistance.
While custodial mothers might intentionally interfere with a father’s visitation simply to punish him, according to Virginia laws on custody, intentional withholding of visitation without just cause could justify a change in the original custody agreement.
Father’s Rights and Child Support
The U.S. Census Bureau reports that nearly half of the fathers without any visitation rights still financially support their children.
According to data collected in 2014 by the U.S. Census Bureau, out of the 7,282 custodial parents who weren’t receiving child support, 1,128 of these were custodial mothers who said they didn’t want their child(ren) to have contact with their father.
In 2012, the U.S. Census Bureau reported that only 28.8% of custodial fathers received child support either through an agreement or award; while 53.4% of custodial mothers received support.
