Post-separation parenting, property and relationship dynamics after five years

The department commissioned the Australian Institute of Family Studies to undertake a third wave of the Longitudinal Study of Separated Families (LSSF) titled 'Post-separation parenting, property and relationship dynamics after five years'.

The LSSF is a national study of parents with a child under 18 years old who separated after the 2006 family law reforms were introduced, and who were registered with the Child Support Program (now in the Department of Human Services) in 2007. The LSSF provides an understanding of family dynamics, pathways taken through the family law system, care-time arrangements, property division, child support arrangements and children's wellbeing five to seven years after the family's separation.
