There is a case going back to court once again in British Columbia that is enough to make me spit nails.
A 46 year old man is being sued by his mother for support. Sound reasonable?
How about a mother who left her 15 year old son alone to go off with his father who was a long haul truck driver along with one of their other sons. Leaving this boy to fend for himself. A mother who never even bothered to contact him again until she wanted money.
She is suing her son, Ken, and four of his five siblings and it has been dragging on for years. She is using a little-used section in B.C.’s Family Relations Act that legally obliges adult children to support “dependent” parents.
Ken spent his youth pumping gas, and couch surfing with friends as he no home. He never got to finish school or even think about higher education.
None of her children except the one who she kept with her talk to her. She dropped her case against him as it would be impossible to collect anything from him as he is in and out of jail.
This woman’s pro bono lawyer says it doesn’t matter what kind of a parent she was they are obligated to support her now.
The other siblings allege that their upbringing was brutal and having to speak of it has caused great distress to them.
She is asking for $750.00 monthly from them.
This woman makes me sick and I will be so furious if she wins her case. A parent is more than just a womb or sperm donor.
