The present study aims to evaluate the psychometric properties and dimensionality of the Spanish version for children and adolescents of the Father Involvement Scale (FIS) under the IPARTheory. To do this, a sample of 514 participants (46.9% male) aged between 9 and 16 years were used. In addition to the questionnaire on parental involvement subjects reported their emotional adjustment, the degree of parental power and prestige and perceived parental acceptance and rejection. Two first-order factors (expressive and instrumental involvement) and another comprehensive one (parental involvement) were obtained. Content as well as criterion validity of each factor seem to be appropriate and so is their reliability. No sex differences were found in this study.
