The current research investigated the personal experiences of young noncustodial fathers following separation and divorce. Using a focus group methodology, the researchers discovered and discussed young fathers' issues related to their children, their ex-partners and the judicial system. Results suggest that noncustodial fathers are difficult to engage, yet in need of help. In addition to recommending that counselors become more proactive in their work with noncustodial fathers, the authors discuss several implications for counselors working with young noncustodial fathers and give recommendations for further research.
