Emily, the daughter of a wealthy man who abandoned her and her mother, faces a dilemma when her paternal grandparents give her a sizeable amount of money as a gift to make up for the child support her father never paid, but her father demands that she gives the money back.
Emily, the daughter of a wealthy man who abandoned her and her mother when she was young, is getting married, and her paternal grandparents, who were unaware of her existence until now, have recently contacted her and given her a sizeable amount of money as a gift.
Give it Back!
They want to make up for the child support her father never paid, but her father is now demanding that she gives the money back.
Trust Fund Living
Emily’s father, who is very well off due to a trust fund and doesn’t really need to work, wanted her mother to quit her job and just stay home to “be a good little wife and mother.”
He Never Told His Parents
However, her mother refused and divorced him, receiving very little due to a prenup, and he moved back to Europe without ever telling his parents about his daughter, Emily.
Emily’s grandparents found out about her impending wedding and her existence, and after learning that Emily’s father had abandoned her to fend for herself.
Child Support, with Interest!
They were furious and had their lawyer calculate the amount of child support her father should have paid, with interest, and the cost of her post-secondary education. They gave this amount to her as a gift, which came out of her father’s yearly draw on his trust fund.
She Doesn’t Want to Give it Back
Emily’s father is now demanding that she gives the money back, claiming that his current wife and children will be negatively affected if she doesn’t, but Emily wants to pay off any debt her mother may have and make sure that when she retires she can do whatever suits her fancy, and is not willing to return the money.
Plans for the Money
Emily’s half-brother has posted about the situation, expressing his disillusionment with his father but not coming after Emily or her mother. Emily has decided to set up a scholarship for people who want to go into her mother’s field of study and to book her mother and her “friend” a trip after her wedding, and pay off her car, now that she is a trustafarian.

This commenter wrote, “It’s your money and obviously, your grandparents are annoyed and want to punish your dad for being a jerk. Let them. You deserve this. If he had been smarter with money, he would probably be fine.”

Another person commented, “Hey, you’re definitely not the jerk, but I wanna make something very clear to you, just in case you think this is the case, you weren’t the one who forced your sperm donor to pay the child support. His parents were. Don’t let him make you feel guilty for something your grandparents did for you.”
A Final Comment
This last person posted, “That trust fund isn’t HIS money, it’s his parents money. They can give or take that at any time they want. And they wanted to take it from him and give it to you. That’s 100% their right. Your father is actually angry at them, but he’s also a coward. He knows that any anger he directs at them may end up with him being cut off completely.”
