Summary This report investigates the implications of the 2006 family law reforms on shared care parenting after separation - in particular the circumstances under which shared care arrangements work, or do not work, in the best interests of the child. The report draws upon a range of information, including a survey of over 1,000 separated parents, a survey with 136 children from separated families, case studies, and data from longitudinal studies and statistical surveys. The report examines the prevalence and duration of shared care, family characteristics, child wellbeing, parental satisfaction, and whether shared care benefits children
