Parents can claim maintenance costs from their children who have broken off the relationship. At present, our country s laws do not support the act of breaking off the relationship between parents and children, so the act of breaking off the relationship is invalid.
Article 14 The caregiver shall perform his obligations of financial support, care and spiritual comfort to the elderly, and take care of the special needs of the elderly.
For the elderly who cannot take care of themselves, the supporter shall bear the responsibility of taking care; if they cannot take care of themselves, they may entrust others or elderly care institutions to take care of them according to their wishes.
When an elderly person brings a support dispute to the court, the people s court should pay for the medical expenses that have already occurred and the relatively certain drug costs that must be paid for some chronic diseases in the future. As for the large medical expenses that may occur in the future, the amount and timing of the medical expenses are uncertain. Therefore, it is generally impossible to judge a request to support a large amount of medical expenses that may occur in the future for the elderly.
If the elderly cannot take care of themselves, their children are obliged to take care of their basic life, but if they cannot do so for themselves, the related expenses incurred by others or the elderly care institution shall be paid by the children.
Dependants have an obligation to properly house the elderly. If the elderly person does not have a house to live in and the elderly do not own a house, the reasonable rent shall be included in the maintenance fee.
The spiritual support of the elderly has become an indisputable legal principle. Of course, the obligation of spiritual comfort is difficult to judge and enforce, but the most basic spiritual enjoyment of the elderly such as cable TV, radio, books and newspapers can be fully determined as the content of maintenance payments. Be borne by the obligor.
In addition to social security, the expenses of medical insurance and other necessary insurance funds for the elderly should also be maintenance expenses. Insurance not only provides maximum protection for the elderly, but also shares a great deal of risk for the children.
Parents can ask for maintenance expenses from their children who have broken off the relationship. At present, Chinese law does not support the act of breaking off the relationship between parents and children, so the act of breaking off the relationship is invalid.
