Hi, thank you for your question. Is your daughter studying A-levels or on a government approved training course?
Thank you. If she is on a government approved training course you will be liable for child maintenance to the grandmother as she resides with her. This is based on your gross income as you will be aware.
You have no liability to provide the mother any child maintenance and if your daughter is not on a government approved training course your child maintenance liability will end.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you

To answer your actual question - the Grand mother can in fact claim against both parents if she so wishes and you would each have to pay the full amount.
