Is There a Duty of Adult Children to Support Their Parents?

Yes says California Family Code Section 4400:

Except as otherwise provided by law, an adult child shall, to the extent of his or her ability, support a parent who is in need and unable to maintain himself or herself by work.

Thanks and a tip of the hat to Shai Oved for pointing this out at the cdcbaa program on Elder Abuse last Saturday at Southwestern Law School.  I immediately forwarded the code section to my kids lest they forget.
