Child support laws have a number of orders and rights for the parent in order to have legal obligation, so that they can have support for their children. The obligation for any child under support act continues from minor to the age of 18-19. All the liabilities and responsibilities of child as well as his/her requirements like food, education, shelter, clothes etc are usually divided between both the parents by the court under these laws. Thus, in case of family division either by divorce or separation, the child who is innocent and dependent on the parents due to his/her mental and physical disability or under growth have full support of the county law and order. Among various programs that are running all over the world, the Oakland county child support law is one.
