This chapter considers an under-researched area of considerable significance — how shared residence is managed in households where the biological parents no longer live together. It compares how shared residence is managed in the UK and France, and concludes that despite attempts, especially in the UK, to create an expectation of shared residence in family break-up situations, there is still a considerable risk of disenfranchising predominantly fathers living apart from their children, and putting in place boundaries that discriminate against this emergent form of family life.

Keywords:   shared residence, biological parents, UK and France, family break-up situations, fathers, family life
