I've got a questuon Could anyone explain the differences between back up, to assist and to support? Which contexts are more appropriate to use one and the others? One example would be: I have decided to back you up. I have decided to support you. I have decided to assist you. Thanks in advance.

Back you up = verbally agree/say that yes, you are correct/say that you are not lying Assist = physically and tangibly help, e.g. write part of the report, do some research for you, contact places... Support = more general meaning; perhaps you assist, perhaps you provide emotional support/listen to their problems, perhaps financial support, perhaps business advice, perhaps you back them up, etc.
