Woman says her grandparents forced her father to pay child support after he abandoned her


A woman has opened up to Reddit’s r/AmITheA hole about how her father was served by karma after coming back into her life despite being abandoned as a child.

In this subreddit, users share their story about a conflict that bothers them. Then other Reddit users in Once the community will vote on who’s wrong using YTA ratings for “you’re the hole”, NTA if the person is “not the hole”, ESH for “everyone feared”. here” and NAH, meaning “no holes here”.

The woman asked if she was wrong to have ‘forced’ her father to pay child support.

Starting her message, the woman explains why she does not get along with her father.

“When he got my mum pregnant, he wanted her to quit her job and stay home to ‘be a good little wife and mother’,” she says.

When his mother refused, he decided to divorce her and return to Europe, but because of a prenup they signed, her mother was left with nothing.

Fortunately, her mother got a good job and her parents helped her, so even though the woman’s father never paid child support, she had a good childhood.

Now the woman is 28 and will marry her fiancé very soon and her paternal grandparents have found her, wanting to be part of his life.

They never knew her but quickly understood her because she fiancé is from their town but they were outraged to learn that their son had abandoned his child.

“So short that they had their lawyer calculate how much child support my dad should have paid with interest and the cost of my post-secondary education,” she explains.

“They then gave me this as a gift. What I didn’t know was that it was from my father’s annual draw on his trust fund.”

His father is now furious because of the amount that was taken without his approval, and he will now have to find a job he despises.

“He contacted me and told me that his current wife and children would be negatively affected if I did not return this money to him.”

The wife decides to keep the money, pay off any debt her mother owes, and use it to buy her own vehicle. She therefore asks to be judged if she is wrong.

The community says the woman is NTA.

Everyone’s comments say that the woman has nothing to be ashamed of and that her father should have paid all along.

Many also praise her grandparents for doing what they did and urge the woman to keep her grandparents as they are the best thing that can happen to her.

This old superstition about karma is true for this story. Eventually it comes back to bite you.
