Eighty single‐father caretakers were surveyed, the majority of whom tended to be middle‐aged, of high educational level, and earning at or above the national average income. Findings suggest that these fathers sought custody because of their love for their children and their confidence in their parenting ability. Despite some minor difficulties, most of the fathers demonstrated satisfactory adjustment. 1982 American Orthopsychiatric Association
