Based on qualitative interviews with a group of responsible fatherhood program participants, this brief focuses on fathers’ perspectives on co-parenting, specifically: the nature of their co-parenting relationship; changes in their co-parenting relationships; and efforts they made to obtain formal agreements for visitation, custody, or parenting time. Each interviewee participated in one of these four responsible fatherhood programs: The Center for Fathering at Urban Ventures (Minneapolis, Minnesota); The Family Formation Program at Fathers’ Support Center (St. Louis, Missouri); Successful STEPS at Connections to Success (Kansas City, Kansas and Missouri); or The FATHER Project at Goodwill/Easter Seals of Minnesota (Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota).
