Les obligations alimentaires (droit civil et droit de la protection sociale)

Abstract : Isabelle SAYN: Maintenance obligations for family members (Civil Law and Social Welfare)
After quickly putting the role of the legal duty to maintain in relation to family solidarity into perspective, the objective of this article is to give the
reader a succinct presentation of legal rules and jurisprudences that institute
and organize these maintenance obligations in the fields of both Civil Law and SocialWelfare Law. Firstly, these rules are presented in two successive
series of texts, sometimes accompanied by a few explanations. The first
series goes over the essentials of articles concerning maintenance obligations
from the Civil Code, the second presents articles pertaining to the
Social Welfare System (Social and Family Action Code, Public Health
Code, Social Security Code), linking maintenance obligations with providing
benefits. There is then a table indicating which maintenance obligations
each of the social benefits program concerned are responsible for.
Secondly, this presentation gives a few precisions on the regime of the aforementioned
obligations and on the scope of judicial litigations that they
provoke. The difficulties relative to the links between civil rules and rules pertaining to Social Welfare Law are more specifically referred to. The aim is not to furnish an overall study on the subject, but only to point out the
most noteworthy difficulties.
