Abstract:     
It is a common principle in many jurisdictions, including Poland and the United States, that parents have a duty to financially support their children. Indeed, few people would dispute the necessity of child support for children — except to the extent that the children at issue are adults. In the case of adult children, parental obligations become less clear, and the differences in the Polish and American approaches appear. Importantly, the differences between these approaches offer lessons implicating child support enforcement and the model of family, which are the subject of this article. First, however, this article turns to a review of the relevant Polish and American law on parental child support for adult children.
