Caution: This page contains ONLY GENERAL LEGAL INFORMATION.
It is NOT LEGAL ADVICE nor a replacement for talking to a lawyer
and getting legal advice about your case.
The law can be complicated and the details of a case can be even more complicated!
There are exceptions for every rule.
What you do not know can harm you. Do not rely on general legal information.
AT YOUR OWN RISK.
After relationships end, obligations to contribute to the other persons support continue. Often support arrangements must be more formal. Rather then just contributing to expenses, there may be a requirement to pay fixed amounts of money.
Support can be required for former spouses and/or for children. Different rules apply.
