We are brought up with the term that food clothing and shelter are the three essentials for life. There are many more things that are required for a healthy living. Children, being in the primary stage of their growth, they need proper maintenance, care and support. A man is responsible to provide maintenance to his parents, wife and children when they are unable to maintain themselves. The concept of child support arises when a child's parents decides to get separated or divorced. The child born from the marriage suffers emotionally and economically, so the parents are supposed to provide child support till the age of 18. The psychological health of parents whose children are incarcerated is a serious concern in India but largely ignored. This article provides the information regarding child support and child incarceration and the laws relating the same.
