Who's Minding the Kids? An Economic Comparison of Sole and Joint Custody

Contents:

Author Info

Abstract

We examine the allocation of spending by divorced parents on both private goods and goods which they share with their child. Sole and joint custody arrangements differ in the pattern of shared goods. Parents play a non-cooperative game. We compute the putcomes under sole and joint custody, and examine the effects of income redistribution.
