The Association has the support of a network of professional lawyers throughout the country.
- The Association also provides assistance and professional support to those who may be facing the psychological consequences of separation, and in cases where agencies such as Social Services and the Juvenile Courts are involved.
- "New Fatherhood" magazine deals with various topics: stories of fathers who have particularly significant experience, updates for parents on the legal situation in Italy, insights on topics important to those who care about the value of family and more. It helps to raise awareness, bringing forward issues around separated fathers and highlighting the problems of a legal system that disadvantages them.
