Can adult children sue their parents?
My sister has 2 sons ages 27 and 31. The 31 yr. old is mariied, has a career and a family. The younger one is out of college, single and works. My sister raised her boys as a single Mom. Their Dad never paid child support and my sister worked 2 jobs to put the boys through school. She never remarried and has supported herself for 18 years. The boys Dad had addiction problems and is in poor health. The boys grandmother passed away and left the Dad $20,000. The state took that money and gave it to my sister towards the money he owed for child support. He still owes more, the $20,000 did not cover the arrears. My sister is worried that the boys will try and sue her for the money.They do not know the state gave it to her. They do not need it but she does. She has been poor all her life and has worked hard to raise the boys without any outside support. Any legal eagles out there with advice?
- Asked by Female, Who Cares?
The state paid the money to her for back child support period, end of story. She supported them during the time the child support was not paid, what is there to sue for?
They'd lose. If anybody, they need to start with suing the state first. The grandmother left the money to the dad.....not the boys
