Alimony and Child Support



Welcome to Lawshelf’s video course on alimony and child support. In this course, we will go through these two major types of support payments that can be ordered after separation, divorce or out-of-wedlock births. We will look at the history of alimony and child support and the evolution of both concepts over time. This is a basic-level course and no previous knowledge of domestic relations law is required.

After going over the history and summarizing the current status of support payments, the course focuses on jurisdiction, or which courts can you go to for enforceable support orders? We will also look at federal and interstate support mechanisms and institutions that have been developed to make enforcing support orders easier.
