Fed-up uncle

Dear Queenie,

  My wife’s sister never calls us just to talk, but she is always calling us to ask for money to help with her bills or her kids’ school expenses. We told her to ask the kids’ father for help with their school expenses but she won’t do it.

  Queenie, should we go on helping her?—Fed-up uncle

Dear Uncle,

  Fathers have a legal obligation to support their children. The next time your sister-in-law asks for financial help, offer to introduce her to an attorney who will help her get the assistance to which she is entitled.
