Until recently, policy makers viewed fathers' provision of child support as the most policy-relevant form of father involvement.

This article identifies current fatherhood policies and considers the mixed implications of these policy and practice interventions for father involvement and child well-being. We conclude with suggestions for future fatherhood policies and initiatives. (Author abstract)
