We found 3 per cent of men in the FRS aged 16–65, with no children living in their household, who were paying maintenance/child support. Just over a third (36 per cent) of the fathers in this survey were living alone at the time of the interview and 42 per cent were living with a new partner. Among the rest, 4 per cent were living with some of their own children, but not with female partners; therefore some of these non-resident fathers were also lone parents to some of their children and some had shared care of their children who happened to be resident at the time of the interview.
