In her research, Wilma Bakker studies post-separation families, their residential arrangements and the organisation of their everyday post-separation life. Although the dominant post-separation residential arrangement is still one where children reside with the mother and have contact with their father on a regular basis, shared residence arrangements have become more common. The aim of Bakker's research is to acquire a better understanding of what motivates people's choice for a particular residential arrangement by looking into the life course characteristics of separated parents. She also wants to gain a better insight into the way post-separation families organise their everyday life.
