On grandparents and maintenance....
And in all this, NONE of the responses said anything about the CHILD the maintenance is for...

Unfortunately, some parents bring up irresponsible kids. Claiming maintenance from these parents for their children's "mistakes" is not done to punish them, but to MAINTAIN AN INNOCENT CHILD.

I don't think the law sucks. I think it's great that close family can legally be held responsible for children. WHO ELSE? Should we rather budget tax money to put them all in state care??

Excellent point, lulu, in all te aquabbling between adults, it's too easily forgotten that it's about supporting the life of a child. And as you say, either the parents of the irresponsible parents are held responsible, or every one of us is.
