Relatives maintenance – I have to maintain my relatives ?
"Relatives in a straight line are obliged to support each other", it is quite succinct in the law.
Here one understands "related in a straight line" those people, one descended from the other.
Accordingly, parents are obliged to support their children and possibly even their grandchildren (please refer to the following sections).
It also follows that there are no maintenance obligations between siblings, between step-parents and stepchildren and between parents-in-law and children-in-law.
