Hi Geraldine,
You might be referring to support payments arising from a common law marriage. You can use to search ‘common law marriage support’ or similar terms.
I found an article by the National Conference of State Legislatures which lists the states in the US that recognize common law marriage.
Hope this helps as a starting point.
