Abstract: 

A father’s incarceration can represent a serious threat toeconomic stability for his children and family, yet little isknown about earnings and child support payments among justice-involved men over the course of incarceration and release. This analysis uses state administrative and survey data from participants in five states to examine this gap. (Author abstract)
