If your kids dad isn't involved

Do you let your ex inlaws still see your kids? I let mine see my DD. Also do you expect them to help you financially if BD doesn't?

I do love letting them see her! But I do not expect them to support her. They are her grandparents not her parents.

 My son's father is not involved with us however I do let his parents see my son a few times a year.  They are not overbearing but so enjoy seeing my son and feel bad about the situation and how things worked out.  They have sent us money from time to time but nothing on a regular basis.

Mine visit every 2 - 4 mths. Ex MIL is visiting us on Friday. BD isn't around ATM and doesn't pay cs but I don't expect them to buy anything and they don't other than presents. They are still strangers to my kids though.

I left the offer open but none of them care enough. No I would never expect them or my family to provide financial support, it's not their responsibility.

nope..they have chosen not to be involved. at this point i wouldn't let their grandparents be involved...grandfather is in prison for child molestation and grandmother is going to be charged when he gets out of VA and faces more charges in FL. do wish there aunts and uncles were involved..they have 18 cousins...

I tried to let my inlaws see my son but it was too dramaful to continue. I definitely don't expect anything from them finacially and they don't seem to miss him much.

My youngest son's dad is not in our lives at all and his family choses not to be so I have never been faced with the decision. If they wanted to I would let them and I wouldn't ask anything from them.

I don't expect anything from that family. Only person who has put out the effort to see dd is her aunt.... And none of them help financially....never have and probably never will.

My kid's dad didn't even tell his parents he has a kid sooooo they don't know she exists.  Kinda shitty, but I don't want a huge drama mess if I were to tell them behind his back.

All of his family live about 900 miles away, but she goes to visit the every few years. No, theyve never help financially nor have I ever asked them too.
