  • Abstract

    Objective: The project “Family Models in Germany” (FAMOD) investigates the diversity of existing family models after separation or divorce in Germany. The main objective is to study the well-being of family members in post-separation families with a special focus on families practicing joint physical custody. Method: The FAMOD study was conducted in 2019/20 among a quota sample of 1,554 nuclear, sole custody, and joint physical custody families in Germany. The data was collected by Kantar Public, Munich. Interviews with parents, children, and stepparents were conducted using computer-assisted personal interviewing (CAPI), and paper-and-pencil interviewing (PAPI). Questionnaire Content: The study focuses on a wide range of issues, e.g.: well-being of parents and children; socio-demographic characteristics; household structure; current partnership; separation and partnership with the other biological parent of the target child; physical custody arrangement; relations between family members; time usage and division of labor; life satisfaction.
