Lawsuits Concerning Loss of Maintenance and Support

RELATED TORT RECOVERY FOR ALIENATING AND ANALOGOUS TYPE BEHAVIORS, 1945-2013



Lawsuits Concerning Loss of Maintenance and Support


Daily a. Parker, Illinois, 1945


The minor children of Mr. Daily, who resided in Pennsylvania, sued (through their mother) a Chicago, Illinois, woman in an Illinois federal district court, seeking damages from her for their father's refusal to continue to contribute to their maintenance and support. 109 The Northern District of Ilinois dismissed the children's complaint, and they appealed to the Seventh Circuit. In reversing the dismissal, the Seventh Circuit held:


Our conclusion, without going further into the matter, is that a child today has a right enforceable in a court of law, against one who has invaded and taken from said child the support and maintenance of its father, as well as damages for the destruction of other rights which arise out of the family relationship and which have been destroyed or defeated by a wrongdoing third party.


Johnson a. Luhman, Illinois, 1947


"Page 301 of Parental Alienation Science and Law"


"Support and maintenance can include various aspects of a child's relationship with their father, including time spent together. Time spent with the father is an important aspect of a child's upbringing and can contribute to their emotional well-being and development. Therefore, when seeking support and maintenance, it can encompass provisions for visitation rights or custody arrangements that allow the child to spend time with their father in a meaningful way".
