This brief explores in-depth interviews with low-income fathers enrolled in responsible fatherhood programs about their experiences with the child support system. The brief explores three main themes:

- Fathers’ experiences requesting modifications to make child support obligations align better with their income; and
- Fathers’ views of the disconnection between paying child support and having access to their children.
